Baking with the family

Once you feel they are ready to prepare real food involve them in simple cooking projects like whisking, rolling balls, stirring, and helping pour out a measuring cup. Even when my children were babies, I would put them in their high chair beside me when I was cooking and showing or describing to them what I was preparing for their meals or snacks.

The best part about cooking with my kids at an early age is that as teenagers they continue to help out in the kitchen by cooking meals or preparing snacks. For my daughter’s 20th birthday party, we made the recipe mentioned above for our guests to eat as snacks during the afternoon. When I showed her the recipe, she couldn’t wait to make them with me. Of course she loves all recipes made with chocolate and peanut butter, therefore I really did not have to convince her much to help prepare them.

Bonding with your kids in the Kitchen

Even her birthday cake was prepared with peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. We had a great time talking about her favourite TV shows while listening to the radio, and she even asked me what I wanted as a gift for Mother’s Day! The special bonding moments you make in the kitchen with your children are so precious!
