Hello Readers! I was planning a baking cake date with my nephew and I started thinking about my own childhood. I realized that I have enjoyed cooking even as a child. I remember my mother purchased a children’s cook book for me and I immediately started experimenting with the recipes. Mom and Dad would sit down to meals of Hawaiian Meatballs, or Baked Cheese Chicken and I got brave enough to create my own recipe - Nikki Von Franks (just cut up franks with rice and corn). Mom often remembers and laughs at my creations as a child. My parents never declined my meals and always cleaned their plates. My little sister ate everything I put in front of her - she was my first food critic and I never got a bad food review…I love my family.
So, this week I thought we should include some fun kid recipes that you can introduce to your family. It’s a great way to introduce cooking skills, discuss healthy foods and a wonderful fun way to bond. Don’t mind the mess, that can be cleaned up … the memories, though, will last forever. Try these recipes with the little ones and feel free to send a few pics of the end results with your little chef.
