Recently, I decided to try and start getting the girls to help cook on a more regular basis, but also to make it special one-on-one time. The Genius was up first. She chose grilled chicken, rice and pot stickers (well mommy may have suggested the menu....). She did GREAT! She even loaded the dishwasher and washed the counters and a few dishes. I loved the time just with her. She loved learning all about cooking. Because it was just the two of us we discussed measurements and how to read and follow a recipe, I let her use a REAL knife, turn on burners and stir boiling water and stuff. It was awesome and her meal was delicious!!!
