Kids Cook Monday – Green Onion and Parmesan Cheese Risotto


Hi Everyone! This is our last “Kids Cook Monday” recipe “Green Onion and Parmesan Cheese Risotto“. It was our plan (the girls and I) to try cooking together for the month of January only, but we had so much fun with it we decided to keep it up through February.  I must say that it has been so much fun cooking with my girls and I can honestly say they have enjoyed it too!  Don’t be surprised if you see a recipe pop-up here or there on a Monday in the months to come!

Have you been cooking with your kids? If so, I would love to hear about your experiences.
