About Us @
I love the process of putting cooking ideas and recipes together and
creating them into webpages and cooking lessons. You will find on
this website there are many sections such as:
- Children's cooking parties
- World studies program
- Craft recipes
- Cooking lesson plans
- Kitchen Science Experiments
- Cook with Book ideas
- Learning about Food Facts
I have a wide variety of kids cooking ideas I have put together for
children of different ages. Take a look around and you are sure to
find something that will get children involved in the kitchen.
Through the past 10 years this website has evolved a lot.
I strive to help teachers and parents organize and plan cooking
lessons for children so they can save time and energy. Educators
whether they are homeschooling, teaching in a school system or
volunteering in a youth program all have one thing in common, lack
of time. You can find them up late at night planning for classes and
using any spare time they have for lesson planning and idea
research. With our plans and projects you will still need to do the
grocery shopping but you'll never have to plan a cooking lesson
How Did I Get Started Cooking with Kids?
I started kids cooking activities and kids cooking lessons with my
children after my oldest son would create "something" in the kitchen
almost everyday. He would fill a pot with water, add sugar, salt,
apples, whatever he could find and ask me to cook it on the stove
top. He didn't want to follow a recipe and just wanted to create
something using whatever inspired him.
When my oldest son was in kindergarten, his teacher asked for parent
volunteers to cook with the kids each week. I knew my son would love
this idea, so I signed up. I learned it wasn't just my son who was
enthusiastic about cooking, all the children loved to cook and were
excited for cooking class each week. This
was the start of something great!
Beyond my son's kindergarten class, I have done a lot of cooking
classes with kids through after school activities, preschool groups,
girl scout and boy scout groups, church groups and cooking parties.
It helps that I love to cook and try new recipes, so it was natural
for me to get my children involved at home and seek opportunities
for cooking with kids.

Why I Created this Website?
I wanted to share my ideas we've done with other teachers, moms,
dads, and grandparents. I know when I first started researching all
I could find were children's cooking lessons locally. They were
creating recipes with names I've never even heard of. Way too
gourmet even for me and I love to cook!
That is why this website has down to earth kid friendly and easy
recipes to help them learn and just have fun in the kitchen.
