If you're here it's likely because you have kids Friends for 20 years (yikes!), we've known each other since our college days, and once we all had kids we noticed a significant shift in our conversations when we got together. We now routinely ended up talking about the feeding of our beloved children - what we made, what our kids liked (and didn't like), how relentless it could feel, what tricks we had learned, what recipes we loved. We could talk for hours. We realized how nice it felt to share our experiences and know we weren't alone, and why not share in each other's wisdom while we're at it? Hence, the Family Cooking Club was born.
Welcome! Here at Family Cooking Club we know that cooking for your family is a full time job. We're here to help with family friendly recipes, meal plans, tips and tricks for picky eaters and most importantly, ways to include your kids in the cooking! Getting kids involved promotes independence and confidence, gives them an essential lifelong skill, and the best part? Provides quality family bonding time (oh, and gives you some help too!).
If you’re here you must be like every other parent on earth: searching for ways to make planning and cooking dinner easier and more fun (as in, not so painful that you
want to cry at least once a week).
At Family Cooking Club, our goal is threefold:
1. To provide you with recipes, tips, tricks and inspiration
to make cooking for your family easier
2. To share with and support one another through the struggles
of picky eating and coming up with dinner ideas
3. To include our kids in the process
GETTING KIDS TO HELP IN FAMILY COOKING
IS OBVIOUSLY GOOD FOR THEM
(HELLO LIFE-SKILLS AND RESPONSIBILITY!),
BUT YOU'LL ALSO BE AMAZED AT
HOW GOOD IT FEELS FOR YOU TOO.
Now, this isn't necessarily about kids donning an apron and making a meal start to finish all by themselves. It's about incorporating "helping with dinner" into their routine, so that it starts to feel totally normal, and just a part of life.
Start small, and build as time goes on.
They'll pick up skills along the way, you'll get family bonding time, and when that day comes that you can ask your 9 year old to whip up a batch of meatballs while you make the sauce, it will feel really, really great.
Think of this club as both your trusted resource and your cooking support group.
And while this website is the place for recipes and information,
Like our pages and join our Facebook Community to share your own family cooking adventures with the group, ask questions, share recipes and get advice.
