Tips for Cooking with Kids-Teach Your Kids to Cook This Summer!

With summer vacation here you're going to have more time with the kids and what could be a more perfect A summer cooking school? . There are a lot of really good cookbooks for know, the ones with the kid friendly photos. They get kids excited about cooking. Nothing's better than being able to have your kids go into the kitchen and make something you've taught them.  Let's face it.....we all have to eat and one day when the kids leave home they'll be on their own and if they know how to cook/bake they may be more inclined to cook for themselves rather then eat the fast food.(just maybe)  Cooking is a skill they will use the rest of their life. Let's have fun with it!
