Dear Parents of Future Chefs,

  • If I told you that your picky eaters could become good cooks and learn to love all kinds of food that they've prepared themselves, would you believe me? 

  • If I said that you and your kids could have a fun time in the kitchen while they learn important life skills, would you ask how?

  • What if you could have a night off from cooking but not spend your hard earned money on take out, would you say, "Sign me up!"?

You may be like me, a busy mom, who's grown tired of picky eaters, bored kids, and fast food. Now there's a way to solve these problems;
please let me explain...

My kids were 8 and 10 when I realized that they really didn't know how to cook and I was doing it all. This was no good! I was either wearing myself out making hurried and boring meals that they were tired of, or we were ordering delivery pizza and doing fast food. Plus, my kids weren't learning an important skill to help them through life. 

It was time to get serious about cooking
yet have a good time with it!

I searched high and low and couldn't find many recipes geared towards these in-between years, so I decided to start this Cookin' Kids website with easy kid friendly recipes and fun ideas.

Cookin' Kids has been going strong since 2003! No more kids staring into the fridge and whining about nothing to eat. No more bored kids with nothing to do. No more empty cookie jar. :)


Here's a bit about what you'll find on this website...

Happy Cookin' Adventures,


P.S.  I never get tired of hearing the stories of your children in the kitchen.  I love hearing about how your child's confidence has grown, how they're better organized, and how their natural creativity has given flight in the kitchen.  Thanks for sharing... and have fun with it!
