Cooking with Kids

Make the most of mealtime

Read about Jesus and the chat he had with Peter at a beach picnic in John 21:15-22. He didn’t harp on Peter’s past mistake (denial) but asked him about their relationship: Do you love me?

Jesus went to the heart of getting deeper and building the bonds between them. Use time together to express love, and ask questions that involve purpose and faith.

Laugh together. Share jokes, childhood memories of parents, or baby stories of growing children. Make meals a pleasant affair. Add compliments for each child.

Be aware of needs. Ask about everyone’s day and listen to their hearts about what happened and the needs of tasks and schoolwork they need to finish. Be aware of what’s on the calendar for each person, young and old. That helps you root for one another.

Cook up fun

Eating together is important, even vital for the health of the family and the success of family members. So, make it more fun by cooking together. Here’s how to easily add a homemade bread that’s a whizz to do.

The simplest bread uses two ingredients: nonfat Greek yogurt and self-rising flour. Combine equal amounts of each and then shape the bread sticks. Pull off a section of dough, roll into snake shapes and lay on a baking sheet OR Roll into a rectangle and cut into slices.

  • Transform them into treats with the toppings. Baste with melted butter or olive oil and add your favorite (garlic, basil and other herbs, or cinnamon and sugar.
  • Or mix in chopped apples, chocolate chips, or cheese.
  • Bake them at 400 degrees for about ten minutes, or place in an air fryer at 400 degrees for five minutes, turn and cook longer as needed. Check the following You-Tube videos where I show how to make them.
