I bet you would guess that I am always in the kitchen. Well, not all the time...but, it is my favorite room of the house! Because of my love of all things domestic, I often get my kids involved with me. I really want them to enjoy cooking and feel comfortable in the kitchen.
There is so much to teach them.
How to combine flavors is a skill I hope they both pick up before they leave home. Recipes are great, but it can be a lot of fun, and handy, to be able to change things up with either ingredients on hand or flavor favorites. My daughter's favorites right now include macaroni and cheese, cheese pizza and pancakes. Both kids are becoming proficient at pancake flipping.
It is time together that I cherish. I know they do, too. Since I am always in the kitchen, they are constantly asking what they can do to help. Now my kitchen helpers can set the table, do a lot of my mixing and even whisking. Currently my son and I are working on folding. It is a work in progress. As he learns to read I know our fun in the kitchen is really just getting started.
