That said, I think it's really important to teach kids to cook. That natural progression can start with toast and move to cheese sandwiches and then eventually to french dip. My mom wasn't big on teaching us to cook. She much preferred to run her own kitchen and we were rarely allowed to participate in the meal planning or preparation. I sometimes wonder if that is one of the reasons (other than it's in my DNA) that I don't like to cook.
So I make my kids cook.
Well, actually, I get the Drama Queen to help teach them to cook. Scout needed to make a recipe for school with 7 ingredients or more so together they chose No Bakes Cookies. I thought you might want to see the cute pics Drama Queen took of Scout to prove to her teacher that she had completed the assignment.
