my boy baked

I love it when Booga asks to bake something.  He's more of a gadget kind of kid but every once in a while his interest in baking surfaces. 

So he made some plain oatmeal cookies using oats from our food storage & a recipe from his cub scout book. 

As an added bonus, he got to mark off a requirement.

They were delicious.

I want all of my kids to know the ins & outs of the kitchen before they grow up into tall people.  They can't take me with them when they leave home for college & missions & married life.  I want them to know how to feed themselves well - not just mac-n-cheese.  I admit it will be hard to share the kitchen.  I get left alone when I cook & bake, which is a rare thing if you have 4 kids.  But I think the training must begin.  I look forward to sharing our baking adventures from time to time.

Do your kids bake with you?  What's your favorite thing to make together?

  1. Mine love to make waffles (is that baking or cooking?) ;)
    also they like to make a dessert recipe we have over here called pavlova. It's like a huge fuffy meringue


These lovely people had something to say:
