My kids are 11 and 14 and love to cook.  My daughter really loves to bake.  My son is a hunter and likes to grill, last weekend he made his own marinade for venison and cooked it and it was delicious.

I had my friend come over with her two kids ages 13 and 15 and I had them if they would love to help cook they said no that is a mom's job. I said get your butts in here and help me. they did but they did not know what to do. I talk to my friend she said her hubby would not let the boy's help her. I could not belive it. that is way I am asking

My dd peels potatoes, and she more sets the table and helps with clean up. She doesn't really have an interest in cooking. She does make her own pizzas though and has made lasagnas.

Yea. She is only 5 though. So we are still chopping soft things with butter knifes. Getting me stuff from the pantry and throwing stuff away. If its something that is not hot she likes to stir.

I have been teaching my son to cook since he was 4. We started out with the simple stuff, like pancake batter and kneading bread, but now that he is 11, he can cook nearly as good as I can with a little coaching. He made eggplant parmesan from scratch all by himself not too long ago. We watch food network and plan meals together. We both love to cook new recipes and try new things. Im so proud of my little chef, following in my footsteps.
