Cooking 101

One of our goals as a family this summer is for my kids to learn to cook. We've already ventured into the culinary world with things like pancakes, french toast and mac 'n cheese (if that counts.) But my kids want to broaden their horizons a little. So the other day, my daughter and I made biscuits. Actually, she made them and I supervised and helped out as needed.

Rolling out the dough was a challenge, but my little baker did great!

Fresh homemade biscuits hot from the oven! Yum!
They were delicious with some butter and cherry preserves.

We've also checked out a cookbook for kids from the library and have been eagerly browsing the recipes trying to decide which ones we'll try first. Yesterday, we had strawberry-orange yogurt popsicles. Perfect for a hot summer's day. I think this is going to be a lot of fun.

That's a great idea for the kids! The biscuits look great! Micah has a kid's cookbook from Chikfila somewhere and they all love to look at the pictures...and it has some good recipes, too. :)
