There are so many reasons why you should start cooking with your kids; to me the best part is the quality time you get to spend with one another.  Cooking teaches math, reading, safety and my personal favorite creativity.  Now, if you’re one of those moms that kitchen messes drive you nuts might I suggest having a glass wine while cooking with your kids because it is going to get messy.  If your child is reluctant to place on chef hat or apron; start off with one of their favorites or with something simple like pancakes. Logan, was hesitant when he began cooking but once he felt the accomplishment of creating the perfect pancake he was hooked.  Sophia, on the other hand loved to cook from the moment she stepped into the kitchen; she has even started cooking on our BBQ grill. Also, think of the benefits when you’re not feeling up to preparing dinner you can always ask your kids to whip something up.(hey, there is nothing wrong with cupcakes for dinner:)

 

Here are some fun science inspired recipes!

  1. All ours love cooking and helping measure & experiment in the kitchen. Only one problem… They all disappear when it’s time to clean up!!! lol

  2. I have a book I love called On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee that has great information about chemical reactions and other food facts. You might enjoy it.
