Teaching Kids to Cook, Part II!
Okay, some moms took my advice and are teaching their kids to cook!

Here's my friend Lylah with her son making shepherd's pie. She doesn't use the same recipe I do, but the point is: her-son-is-making-it-and-he-is-using-stuff-he-likes-so-he-will-eat-it-and-not-complain!

The question is: will you eat it? After he's touched it all like that? A mother would, you know. As long as it was your own kid! Check it out:

Now, as gross as it is to have kids touch all that food, at least this kid looks comfortable in the kitchen!

Does your child? Next time he or she wants to help, let them! Don't send them away. They learn by watching you.

My half-brother has been with us for a few days, hanging out while I cooked, and he's learned a lot (he's living on his own now and has to cook for himself). Kids learn that way, too. But they don't learn if we never teach them, or we shoo them out.

What am I missing here? I don't think it's "gross" at all to have him touching the food...I mean, at some point, someone has to touch most things that get cooked, and since his hands are clean that's not any different than me kneading bread, is it? And it's even going in the oven which will kill off any remaining germs.
