  • Yes, my kids have always liked helping cook. Now that they are older they even cook by themselves.

  • My children are 21,21,15, and 13 and they are in charge of planning, cooking, serving, and cleaning up one meal a week.....together......for those that are here during the week. Once of the older boys is away at college and the other older boy spends time either working temp jobs or with his fiancĂ©e's family.
