Cooking With Kids – Why Do You Like To Cook?

If you ask your kid, any kid why they like to cook you will understand why you should cook with kids!  Here is what my 9-year-old said to me…


Bean and Cheese Burrito

Hi Everyone! So here is the first of our Kids Cook Monday recipe.  It went really good! My girls had a lot of fun making these really easy burritos despite being a little sick.  I had a whole bunch of fun eating them, they were delicious!

Bean and Cheese Burrito They used a three blend shredded cheese mix of cheddar, jack and parmesan instead of just jack cheese.

Did your kids cook dinner tonight? If so, what did they make? 

Kids Cook Monday

Welcome to our first Monday of my kids cooking. My girls are excited about starting Kids Cook Monday, as am I! The fun part is that they choose the recipes!  The Kids Cook Monday is part of the Monday Campaigns that encourages families to set aside the first night of every week for cooking and eating together as a family. So on Mondays I will share with you the recipe the girls decide to cook and will post pictures and provide an update on the process and outcomes and I hope you will do the same.
