Some of my fondest childhood memories are of being in the kitchen with my mum, aunts and grandparents. Learning to cook and bake with them from a young child to teenager, and even now I love joining my mum in the kitchen helping to prepare family meals that we then sit down together to enjoy. Those recipes that I learnt at their apron strings and the cookbooks that I had – and still have, are my go-to recipes to share with my kids and teach them to cook in the home for family meals and treats.
With the new year and one of the family goals we have set this year being more meals together to encourage us to talk and spend time daily this is a great way to start, I’m also hoping that it will encourage both J and T to try new foods and experience new tastes as we work through the recipes I will be sharing. To extend the time spent together, we are preparing and cooking the meal as a family.
Today I’m launching our 26 part series Cooking with Kids an A to Z series. I will be joined by other bloggers sharing recipes that you can cook with your kids, working through key ingredients in an alphabetic order, bringing you a complete A to Z of family-friendly recipes for you and your kids to enjoy.
Cooking with Kids
Every other week, I will be sharing a recipe here on Rainy Day Mum along with other bloggers from the “cooking with kids” team that I have put together. We’ll share a recipe with the key ingredient matched to a letter of the alphabet. Sometimes we will all have the same key ingredient and other times because of diets, tastes etc… you may find some variation with the ingredients used.
As well as the post with the recipe, each of us will provide a printable recipe that you can download and print for your own use.
The bloggers involved have a variety of aged children, so whether you have toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged, tweens or teens, there will be a variation of the letter that you can cook with the kids, and teach them to make at home.
