I get it. Cooking with kids is a love/hate kinda thing!
It tests your patience BIG time. At least it does with me.
But with a few tips…it can be enjoyable for everyone with some learning and mess making along the way! Start with a simple baking recipe – measuring, stirring and taste testing are usually the most fun parts!
During a recent visit to our local library, I found some great cookbooks for kids.
Our favorite was this one. The Help Yourself Cookbook for Kids
I loved it all – literally every page was so thought out and creative. I mean look at these cute pictures! Strawberry Mops?!?!? HA, Love the idea!
My daughters laughed when they saw these rabbits sliding down the kale 🙂
We will be making…
Our second favorite was Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen
We read a ton of books in our house – my kids ‘read’ to themselves all the time. AND this book, well it basically brings both the loves in our house ‘cooking’ and ‘classic children’s stories’ together – COME ON!!!
This Secret Garden Smoothie is one we will make over and over again…pretending me are in the garden 🙂
And of course this one, National Geographic Kids Cook Book…because the food in letter shapes were a win for my daughters.
Food from your garden, planning a picnic and fun and easy recipes…the colorful pictures help too!
“Mom, this looks like you…except different”
Chefs and What They Do, is a fun book that highlights all what we, Chef’s do..hence the books title.
We are going camping this summer and I’m determined to try…Cooking in a Can
Get in the kitchen. Bring your kids with you. Take a deep breath and a glass of wine.
