Kid-Friendly Recipes?

Just imagine how much people could accomplish after they accept that there is no god. No god to blame. No god to thank. No god to praise. No god to grant or deny requests. No predetermined plan. Just imagine the possibilities that would come with that one realization that people have to take ownership of themselves, their choices, and their moral obligations.

My daughter is 4, and she asked to make dinner, so I said sure! What can she make (with my help, obviously)? What are your go-to kid-friendly recipes?

I want her to do most of it. So not too much chopping or stove-top work. But we have a great blender and food processor she can use just fine, and we can bake things.

My 3 year old makes pizza. She does the toppings. She also is really good at stuffing meatballs.

Did you ask her what she wanted to make?

What about gazpacho? Make it a soup and sandwich night.

 My 8 year old decided to start cooking "on her own" this month.  So far she has made (with my help) turkey club sandwiches, hamburgers and spaghetti with meat sauce.

 Great idea!  Kids love rolling dough and adding toppings!

 My dd loves to make meatballs, I let her do everything but put them in the oven and pull them out. We serve them on rolls for meatball subs.

 Pizza, meatloaf or meatloaf muiffins or hot dog muffins.  Plastic disposable knives are great for kids to learn to cut with. they really work, but they can't hurt themselves.
