Cooking Recipes Kids Love

In these busy times it is sometimes hard to squeeze in quality time with our children. Between work, school, sports and extracurricular activities, it seems almost impossible to make time for special one on one time with our kids. That’s why spending time cooking with our kids can create wonderful memories of special time spent together.

Why do I love cooking with my kids?

Cooking with my kids gives me a chance to bond with them and it creates a calm environment for us to share what is going on in our lives. With two boys in the house, I love moments of peace because they are few and far between. It’s nice to turn off the video games and television and just focus on each other and whatever delicious recipe we are creating.

When do I cook with my kids?

Obviously not every day is a great day to cook with your kids. It does take some extra time and patience as well. So usually weekends or during the summer are the best times for trying out new recipes in our house. Depending on your schedule, just pick a time that works best for you, preferably when you have nothing pressing to do and nowhere to be. That way you can just focus on enjoying this time together with your children.

How do I go about cooking with my kids?

It is best to be prepared before calling the kids into the kitchen. Having the recipe, ingredients and measuring cups and spoons out and ready will make things a lot smoother once your little ones are involved.

What are some ideas for cooking recipes kids love?

Now, of course your kids probably aren’t going to want to remove the innards from a chicken and cook up a healthy dinner of chicken and broccoli… I don’t know, maybe they would. Not mine. So I like making easy dessert recipes kids love. It just makes it more fun and everyone gets to enjoy a delicious treat when you are done.

There are numerous places you can find yummy recipes online and many dessert cookbooks as well. I try to stick with basic recipes and nothing too complicated. This should be a fun time together, not a stressful time trying to figure out a complicated recipe. A favorite in our house are cupcake recipes kids can make and decorate. It’s always fun to add their own designs and touches to their creations. It’s always a great moment to see the pride in the faces of your children when they are done!

The bottom line is it doesn’t matter what you are making. You are spending quality time with your kids, making precious memories that they, and you, will never forget.
