Cookbook inspires budding chef and picky eater
I bought my eight-year-old and six-year-old boys a cookbook: Kids’ Fun & Healthy Cookbook, by Nicola Graimes. I asked them each to pick out a recipe to make for a family meal. My eight-year-old picked out Sticky Ribs with Baked Potato. It was a huge success and now my eight-year-old cooks it again and again. “It was really yummy,” he said raising his eyebrows up and down three times. He even made it as a special dinner for his uncle, who is a gourmet chef. My six-year-old, who is a very picky eater, succeeded after two recipe tries to find a recipe he likes: Eggs in a Roll (with tomatoes). He now has adapted his recipe to English muffins with bacon. He complains a whole lot less when he is in charge of choosing and cooking! And boy, is he puffed-out-chest proud.
