I sent the book to a children’s book contest. Hopefully it’ll do well. I’m looking for a publisher for it if anyone has any leads.

And after talking for months and months about it I finally made my first solar oven. Thank you Rocio for all the cardboard and help (more like for letting me help you :p)

It takes about an hour to make a batch of cookies. I plan on starting a solar cookie business of my own. Unfortunately it is the rainy season in Mexico, so the weather often does not help. I’m going to keep experimenting though and figuring out what are the best recipes. I want to make some solar pizza too.

There is a ton of info about building solar ovens on the net. I found this design to suit my needs the best.
