Children helping in the kitchen

From the time my boys were little, they would love to help Mama in the kitchen. They loved measuring ingredients, stirring, and later learning how to crack eggs. It is a magical place, the kitchen is. Now that my oldest is almost 12, he is inventing recipes. I completely encourage his creations and his experiments. This attitude of letting the boys loose in the kitchen is what Works for Me! Check out this link for more awesome ideas!
Here is Son1's best creation so far:

Honey Cinnamon Twists
1 flour tortilla
butter, softened
Cinnamon sugar
Spread butter on the tortilla. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Broil until the sugar begins to caramelize and get all bubbly. Remove from the oven. Drizzle honey over the tortilla. Roll up and enjoy!


  1. My two boys like to help in the kitchen, and I hope to continue to encourage them in that as they get older. I think letting them loose is a great idea! (and those honey cinnamon twists sound yummy!)

  2. These sound very good and I love the creativity! I hope I can be patient enough to allow my children to do this kind of thing when they are old enough!


Penny for your thoughts!
