A little over a week has gone by since we came home from our wonderful family reunion in Star Valley Ranch, Wyoming! Maddy is going to tell you all about it in a later post. But, since we have been focusing this summer on cooking with kids, I wanted to let you know that our cooking fun continued while we were in the beautiful cabin that we stayed in.
As with any vacation, one of the highlights was the great food that we ate! We arrived at the cabin on Father's Day, which also happened to be my husband's birthday. We celebrated that evening with a cake made by my granddaughter, Shyanne. Actually, to feed all of us, she made 2 cakes! When it came to frosting, we had to improvise because we only had enough powdered sugar for one cake, but thankfully some chocolates that I happened to bring along came in handy! We just melted them on top and spread them like a frosting!
One of the best things about cooking with my grandkids is the times that we laugh and talk and get to know each other. I love watching my grandchildren interacting with their cousins and develop good relationships.
Since one of the things I did with my grandsons was make cookies from a store bought tub of cookie dough, it was pretty simple and there wasn't measuring or math involved, except that I did explain rows and columns to them as we scooped the dough on to the cookie sheet.
I made a little video, (very amateur) of a couple of our cooking moments that we captured. These show cousins working together and Aunt Maddy with nephew, Kyle, working together. I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to make some cooking memories with your kids and grandchildren.
