Everyday Cooking: A Review

Image 156

Dear Homeschooler,

I remember going on a tour of the local middle school and seeing all the different classrooms and subjects. It was so different than elementary school. I was especially excited about Home Economics where we would learn to cook and sew. Now, I ended up starting to homeschool in grade 7, so I never went to the middle school. Since then public schools have been stripping away electives like this for year, so that now only the bare bones remains. I am so thankful that homeschooling allows us to add many electives. So, this year, among the penny whistle, coding, sports, dance, robotics and sewing, we were excited to add Everyday Homemaking‘s Everyday Cooking to our list.

 

Everyday Cooking
Everyday Cooking opens with an interesting fact: “A recent survey of Nation Merit scholars of the past twenty years revealed that one common denominator, without exception, was that they are from household who made family dinnertime (as in, all at the table at the same time!) a priority, even if it is just three nights a week.” (p.7). We know that quality family time is important for the development of our children both physically, emotionally, and mentally. How do we, as busy homeschoolers, find the time?

Everyday Cooking is not your typical recipe book. It is chalk-full of helpful hints of how to make the most of your time and money, so you can make the most of your time and money. As mentioned above, I aim to include it into class time about once a week as an elective.

My kids love be in the kitchen. My son donned his apron and toque and was ready to go. Of course, we went straight to the chocolate chip cookie recipe. My son can read and follow directions pretty well, so he was pretty independent making

They were so yummy! The kids loved them, too.  We can’t wait to do more recipes in Everyday Cooking.

Do you have the Everyday Cooking recipe book? Which recipes are your favorite? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
