Cooking with Kids

A recipe doesn’t have to be all about sparkly glitter and food coloring (not that there’s anything wrong with those two awesome ingredients) for a kid to be involved with.  The key things for me have been to cook with lots of patience, and not to stress if the recipe takes me more time than I’d originally planned.  The best part is the process of cooking with your kids, not the perfectly plated food afterwards.
