Do you love to cook and look forward to teaching your kids how to cook, too? I have grown up cooking because my mother taught me, and being able to cook well is a treasured and much appreciated skill of mine. If you start cooking early, it is so much easier to intuitively know all the tricks of the trade. Because I learned when I was young, trying a new recipe has never been daunting to me, and there are not many things I could not pull off. Short of going to French cooking school, I learned all the cooking skills I needed from my Mom. When I had little kids of my own, I taught them most of what I learned.
Recently, though, I realized my kids are asking for new recipes and “tests” I could give them to try cooking. For me, it used to be this old Charlie Brown cookbook, but for my guys, Pinterest came to the rescue. (Which is good, because my beloved Charlie Brown cookbook did not make it to my new home!) From easy desserts to simple salads to skewers that are super fun for kids and adults of all ages to make, you will find some cool recipe ideas to make in the kitchen with your children. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has.
