I love that there is a trend in kids learning to cook. What better way to learn the basics in the kitchen AND have fun at the same time? I was inspired to write this blog when I was chatting with my friends’ 9 year old daughter and she was telling me that her favorite Christmas gifts this year were a collection of kitchen gadgets and utensils. Her favorite thing to make was cupcakes and who doesn’t love a great cupcake! I whispered to her that she can come cook for me! lol
Her mom even plans out simple meals that she can prepare for the family a couple of days during the week. What a great idea, Mom!
I sometimes take cooking classes at a local cooking school and was intrigued to see so many classes in their catalog that are for kids. This is exciting to me because I was beginning to think cooking was a lost art. I’m not gourmet chef by any means but I do think it’s important to learn the basics to be able to put together simple meals.
I recently came across a blog that I have fallen in love with. It’s called Mommy’s Kitchen and has simple and delicious meals that Mom and Dad can prepare with the kids. One of my favorites is a really fun idea for Valentine’s Day…a heart shaped homemade pizza!
