In addition to setting the table, clearing and doing the dishes while I read in the evening our kids also often cook something scrumptious with me. At least that is how it starts. They soon graduate to wanting to cook on their own. Will, age 15, has become a master at desserts making fudge, cakes and a large variety of cookies. Good thing I have a high metabolism!
Hope, in the photo above, is cooking one of her ‘secret recipes‘. I know it has salt, flour and peanut butter in it. Other than that I’ll have to wait and see after dinner. Usually she follows a recipe in a book or with us but sometimes she makes it up as she goes along. Sometimes these creative endevors of hers come out surprisingly good. A few times they’ve been impossible to gag down – even she said so! The big thing though is to encourage her experimenting and learning the love of life. So, with each concoction we grin and nibble with the hope it will be delectable…
