Cooking with kids

Putting the colour on the monster eyes for our
Monster Crispy Bars

I read in an article this week, that home cooking is a declining skill. Our grandparents would be hard pushed to recognise the ‘food’ we eat as food. Reflecting on this sad issue, I am thankful to my Mum for encouraging me to cook from fresh and supporting me through Home Economics at school. Those lifts to school carrying a bagful of ingredients was worth the effort; I love home cooking! It remains one of my passions in life. Not only does feeding my family fresh, nutritional ingredients fill me with pride, it is my stress buster. Win-win!

We’re going on a Monster Hunt fun

Recently, our family friend’s son came to our house for a sleep-over. What a great opportunity to share my love of home cooking with the next generation. Our delightful 3 year old loves getting his cooking apron on and getting his hands into a bowl of ingredients. All of that wonderful language as well as developing many skills made the experience fun filled and that was before we ate our ‘Monster Rice Crispie bars’. We’d already been on a Monster Hunt around the kitchen (using the fabulous story We’re going on a bear hunt) and added more fun to our Monster weekend by creating monsters with many eyes. Special thanks to the great website Eats Amazing for the recipe and ideas. What a wonderful and memorable kitchen experience for us all.
