Celebrity Chef, Rachael Ray, Provides Tips for Cooking (and Cleaning) with Kids
(NAPSA) - Most adults remember cooking with their families and the tasty creations, fun recipes and important skills they learned in the kitchen. Today, cooking is still a valuable and enjoyable way for families to re-connect and spend time together.
A recent survey, sponsored by "all" laundry brand, set out to determine how moms and kids feel about cooking together. The survey found that the mess children make in the kitchen is the number one reason mothers cited for not cooking with their kids more often, followed by lack of time. In fact, an overwhelming percentage of moms (eighty-two percent) said they would cook more with their kids if they did not have to worry about the mess.
"Cooking is a wonderful and engaging way to keep children learning, developing and entertained," said Ray. "By following simple tips, families can handle kitchen messes and focus on having fun."
A few of the tips to help small chefs manage a big mess, include:
Treating stains early helps to reduce them from setting and ruining clothing. To remove stains, choose a laundry detergent like "all" that's formulated to get out 99 top food stains.
Unwrap candies and place into a bowl.
Have GH (Grown Helper) cut Fugi apples into quarters and core the slices. GH should then slice apples into 8 pieces per apple. Squirt lemon juice into a bowl with 1 cup water. Add sliced apples and turn them around in the lemon water, then drain them in a strainer or colander.
Add 1 tablespoon water and peanut butter to your caramel candies. Place candies in microwave oven on high for 2 minutes. Stir the dip up with a rubber spatula. If the candy is not melted all the way, put it back in the microwave on high for another 20 seconds. Add a pinch of cinnamon to the sauce and stir.
Place apples next to the dip and start dunking! Serves four.
