Are Your Kids Young Chefs?
Kids in the kitchen. It has a wide range of emotions for me. I am elated that they are entertained, cautious of the danger, and frustrated with the mess. However, I know people who manage to have their kids make snacks for themselves, so I was so excited to have a cook book just for kids.
Young Chefs is a cookbook that gives you simple recipes that kids can follow. There are cooking tips and techniques, explanation of cooking terms, and trivia. My favorite feature is the tool box in the top corner of each page, showing which tools are needed to create each recipe. That way I can search for something that a kid could make themselves, or see what all is needed for help from me. Simple things become tricky when my 4 year old is helping, so its good to get the at a glance version before I am half way into the prep.
My son loved the banana taco’s. At first he was a little nervous (what 4 year old isn’t afraid of new foods) but when he helped to make it, he was so excited to try it. I am nervous but thrilled to have a snack he can make himself.
