Cooking in Our Homeschool
The boys and I have been watching cooking shows together and I’ve been incorporating “cooking class” into our homeschool. It has been a lot of fun for all of us, but be warned! Cooking with kids takes twice as long, so you’ll need a heaping helping of patience and time. There are some days I know we just don’t have time for a cooking class.
Last week we watched an episode of “Sandra’s Money-Saving Meals” on Food Network. She was doing a bake sale theme. At the end she did two savory recipes, and I fell in love with both. The first one was Ham & Cheese Pinwheels, which we can’t make yet because it uses pizza dough, and gluten-free pizza dough just doesn’t roll up into a log. I want to try it with rice paper instead, but haven’t found the rice paper yet. (Is that even the right term?)
The second savory recipe was Ham & Cheese Croquettes. If you don’t have to worry about food allergies, you could click on the colored link and get her recipe. For those of you that need to eat gluten-free or GFCF, you’ll be able to use the recipe I adapted. It is YUMMY! Continue reading

How To Diversify a Diet When A Child Has a
Significantly Limited Food Repertoire
Do not withhold the few foods that are acceptable. If you take away that one brand of mac n’ cheese, you’re taking away one of the few sources of nutrition for your child, even if it is a poor one. Pizza can be healthy if you buy or make it with high-quality ingredients.
I start by identifying one food the parent would like to add to a child’s diet, typically a fruit or vegetable. If possible, the child selects the particular fruit or vegetable. Continue reading

Robin shared this recipe that looks like a great project for kids! She says:
Time to decorate for Thanksgiving and start gathering recipes.
These cookies have been our family tradition for almost 20 years now. Making them is a special time the children look forward to every Thanksgiving. Giving them to neighbors and friends is just as fun.
