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?
