Just after the beginning of the year, I decided that I wanted to get my girls more involved in the kitchen. They have occasionally helped me do some baking in the past, but I wanted to have them do something more regularly – as a way of spending time together and also to help them learn to enjoy cooking and be comfortable in the kitchen.
This is difficult during the week with school and other activities, so I decided that each Saturday afternoon I would have one of the girls bake with me. Right now we are doing desserts (who doesn’t love that!), but eventually we will move on to other items.
The Sunday afternoon before, the girl whose turn it is for the week chooses the recipe she would like to make from my recipe file or one of my cookbooks. I can then add the ingredients to my shopping list in case the recipe calls for something we don’t have in the pantry.
Spending time together cooking is a finer thing! This post is linked to
