Kids Cooking

Here’s Mikey:

IMG_8118 There is something so totally empowering and grown up about cooking. You get to decide what to cook, how it turns out, and who gets to eat it.

Mikey had to ask Grandma Pammy for a few tidbits of advice, but basically he made these “mix in a jar” cookies on his own. And I ate plenty of them.

If I could figure out how to do it, I’d love to make a cookbook with recipes that kids could actually make on their own. My daughter’s 3 and she just figured out how the microwave works (except that she puts everything in for like 30 minutes).

What would you put in it? What do your kids cook on their own?

Yes. I am wracking my brain trying to think of good recipes for that. Fake blueberry pie? I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good.
If you want to post tomorrow, I'll reschedule my next post. Let me know.
