I have been cooking a long time, but growing up I did not like to cook. My mother tried to get me to can and learn to cook but it just was not what I wanted to do at that time.
I was a caregiver and the cook did not show up one day. I said let me do it and that was how I got started. A big Retirement Facility even had me come and cook for them.
I have cooked at many schools and love these kiddos. My last cooking job was at a Memory Care Facility for 13 years, and I had a fellow that works there tell me my food was so good because “I sprinkled it with love” before I served it.
When we lived at the big farmhouse raising our family I had a big kitchen and it became Mom’s Kountry Kitchen. We always had extra people for dinner and a huge country table that seated over 10.
When it comes to cooking, it is important to keep in mind that everyone started somewhere. I do not know of a single person who was born with a wooden cooking spoon and ready to go.
Do you like to get your kids involved in the kitchen? You spend a big part of your day cooking, so why not get your family in on the act. It allows you to have more quality time with you family.
(Don’t let the years pass you by without taking the opportunity to share, cook and write down your family’s favorite recipes. Start by making your own Family Cookbook.)
Here are some useful steps to help teach your children the art of cooking since childhood.
Start with your children at an early age, even young children in Pre-school age are capable of doing more than expected in the kitchen.
Teach them how to use basic kitchen tools: knives, cups, spoons.
Remind them always if they use something it must be returned to its rightful place in the kitchen.
When allowing your children to help you, give them some small tasks: move a container, beaten eggs, add the flour in the mixer.
Be Patient…..Naturally, there will be some mistakes and spills at the outset but that what happens. 🙂
It’s a life skill is learned. All children and teens eventually become adults and will need (or want) to know how to cook, for themselves, others or their own family.
Let’s get our Kids in The Kitchen More, not just to bug for snacks but to learn how to cook. Cooking is a life skill our kids need to succeed. Forgetful Momma has a 10 Day Series to get your family started.
