Kids Cook Monday

tkcm_logo1Here is the Kids Cook Monday recipe, which my oldest daughter (10) found herself, Chicken Corn Chowder from MyRecipes.com. My girls are really embracing the cooking thing. They are having so much fun, finding recipes, shopping for ingredients and cooking! If you have not cooked with your kids, you really should. I’ll share photos of their masterpiece later.
