Fingerlicking Good!

Back to the subject of cooking with your children!

It still amazes me how much I accomplished with my son in terms of being receptive with different food, just by letting him be a part of the cooking process. It's that simple: if he makes it, he eats it!

Yes, there is a price to pay in cleaning up afterwards and spending more time than you would like in the kitchen, but it's priceless to hear your child to actually ASK you for the "Super-salad" for dinner (baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, olives and tuna or chicken)! And yes, it takes some creativity with names too, which I must say I lack ;-)

Nicholas recently even came to me with his own, handwritten recipe for a fruit salad!
Stay tuned: if I find it I'll scan it and post it and it will be the very first recipe published on Cucinamore! :-)
