Get Cooking!

When Kids cook they improve their math and reading skills as well as have a lot of fun.

We have hundreds of cookbooks on subjects such as holiday baking, foods of other cultures, vegan cooking or even cooking treats for your pets! One of my favorites is the Spatulata Cookbook. Easy step by step instructions and lots of great photographs!


Recently I found that the folks at Spatulatta have an award winning website featuring great cooking videos for kids by kids.


Feel inspired to cook? Here's an easy no bake snack from my personal collection...

Cranberry dip - serve with crackers or celery
1 package (8 ounce size) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons frozen concentrated orange juice, thawed
1/4 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

Mix, chill, serve!
