Your children will soon be budding chefs thanks to these easy-to-follow recipes and tasty renditions of their favorite foods.
Here’s an idea for the New Year: You kicking back with a glass of wine as your kids whip up dinner.
Fantasy? Maybe, but it may just be time to let your children learn a valuable life skill like cooking. You know what they say about teaching a man to fish? OK, making your kids hunt and forage for their food may be a bit extreme, but you can teach them how to whip up age-appropriate snacks and suppers.
The secret is finding tasty, easy-to-follow recipes for foods they already know and love, such as granola bars and chicken parmesan. Those classics and more can be found in American Girl Cooking by Williams-Sonoma. While the cookbook is ideal for fans of the dolls—you and your daughter can debate whether Samantha would prefer guacamole or greek salad pitas—the family-pleasing recipes are sure to be a hit with boys too.
