I love cooking with my kids and I think it is rather fabulous way of spending some time together.
I am absolutely delighted to have been asked to be one of three judges to judge this rather splendid bloggers cooking with kids competition. The prize is this pretty amazing range oven …..
All you need to do is simply – cook with your kids! Choose a dish to cook, the more fun and messier the better, and get creative with it, then blog about it and include some photos. Do take a look at Rangecookers competition page for the full details.
Here is a post by me as an example of the kind of blog post we are looking for…
Lisi’s Famous Choc Chip Cookies
Me and Lisi love to cook together. She is 5 and I am 41 and yet our skill levels are about the same. I know what I like to eat and what looks good but my baking is somewhat hit and miss. I am a bit slapdash with measurements and don’t always have all the ingredients in the house to make the food she wants to make . But we go for it anyway. Her enthusiasm and love of cooking makes it all worth while .
Here she is making her famous chocolate chip cookies (well the neighbours and her great granny love them) Annalise likes to do it pretty much all by herself so I help with measuring and she pretty much does the rest. Her absolutely favourite part is licking the spoon clean!
You will need:
- 75 g soft brown sugar
- a large egg
- 75 g soft butter
- 100 g chocolate chips
- 150 g self raising flour
- few drops of vanilla essence
3. Stir in flour and chocolate chip chunks keep stirring till it makes a dough.
4. Place balls of dough (slightly flattened) on greased baking tray.
5. Bake at 180 for 10 minutes or until golden brown
It’s the fact she’s turned out SO LOVELY that I most care about. Straight away she wants to take one to our elderly neighbour who delights in her frequent baking., She wants to put one to one side for daddy and take some to her playdate as a gift. I am so proud of her sharing ways. I am proud to of the fierce independence she shows, her desire to learn new things, her persistence and how wonderful she is to spend time with. I love her so much.
Cooking with your kids is fab.
I am so looking forward to reading about your cooking sessions.Good luck to you if you enter the Rangecookers competition
