Cooking with kids is such fun.
Since my kids are growing up, and I miss messing around in the kitchen with younger kids, I've resorted to borrowing friends' kids to cook with. Meet Meridith - my new cooking buddy. She's seven, soon-to-be eight, and keen and eager learn all about cooking and to get her hands dirty in the kitchen. Besides helping make new recipes, she loves spelling big hard words, playing with Lego, Ukrainian dancing, and wrestling with her brothers.
Join us in our 'Kitchen Kids' culinary adventures as we cook foods that are fun and easy for kids to prepare (sometimes with an adult's help).
