Act 312

Cook with your kids

We’ve spent many a Saturday at home this last year and it’s been good for our culinary craft. I’ve learned to make bread and sauces, pastry and soups. The kids are on board. One son asks me regularly if he can please help me chop stuff up. The other is more of a taste tester and he’s developing quite a gourmet palette.

Their repertoire of recipes is getting pretty extensive: ribs, pasta, eggs, bread, muffins and cookies. They’ve been a big help and they like feeling like they can contribute to family meals. It helps at the grocery store because they understand that we can make it at home rather than buy it in a box.

If only we could reverse engineer the recipe for oreos, I’d be all set.

  1. I’ve recently discovered your blog, and I’m enjoying catching up. Congratulations on your efforts to cut debt! I just wanted to mention that if you google “oreo clone recipes”, you’ll find lots of ideas.
