I’ve always wanted my kids to cook for themselves…not just a bowl of cereal or boxed mac and cheese, but real cooking. Lately, Facebook has been inundated with articles about how you should give your kids knives and let them play with the stove. Well, not so much play with the stove per se, but apparently kids in Finland are making coal fire pizza at age four and well, it’s time we caught up.
So, I decided to do two experiments at once this summer: cook with my kids, and blog. I think it’s going to be fun.
Here’s how it will work: Each week, on a set day (probably Wednesday) we will embark on a cooking adventure. Some weeks it will be simple, some complicated. We will create a dish (or beverage) and then let you in on the journey through photographs and stories.
My goal in this adventure is twofold: To teach my boys about different foods, techniques, and tools in the kitchen, and to show them how sharing our stories can make others smile.
I hope you join us starting mid-June as these two silly ninjas and their mommy set out on this culinary adventure!
