It's just the beginning of the holiday season, which comes with plenty of family, food, and fun. Why not combine all three, and get your little ones in the kitchen helping out with Thanksgiving dinner? While we aren't suggesting that your three-year-old roasts the turkey, kids can get involved in different ways. By having them help prepare a side dish, they feel as though they have made a major contribution to the meal, and they'll tell everyone at your table about how they made it. Imagine the huge smile across both their face and yours.
There are lots of reasons why we cook. For me, nutrition and health are a big part of it. Creativity and relaxation are another part of it. But also, I hope that the family and friends I cook for can feel the love. I'm not sure what I will pass down to my grandchildren, a printout of my Recipes Pinterest Board? But I do know one thing for sure: Food is family.
