About The Kid Cook

Children that are exposed to how food is grown and prepared at a young age have a greater appreciation for the world around them. They are able to learn about how different cultures from around the world live and they gain a valued perspective from what can be created from their own backyards.  Whether its fresh grown vegetables, seafood or dairy a world of possibilities opens up when a child’s love of food can be cultivated. 

Cooking is an opportunity to spend quality time with your child. Children love to create and contribute and they most enjoy the special attention of a task shared with a parent. Seeing the outcome of what they can make instills confidence in them. Cooking together offers a parent the opportunity to teach valuable life lessons and can be really fun.  What a better way to spend a day at home! 

Read on to find some kid-friendly recipes for all ages and abilities that you can make with them or for them today!

Making Candy Apples 2018

It was a week before Halloween, we had tickets to go to an outside fall festival with some friends along with their kids. The kids had been counting down the days to the festival that promised a petting zoo, bouncy houses, food & games. However, two days before the festival we got an email that it was canceled, the weather forecast was predicting our first “nor’easter”(a storm or wind blowing from the northeast, especially in New England.) which would consist of heavy rain and high winds that weekend. The look of disappointment look on the kid’s faces when we had to tell them it wasRead More →

Fall Is For Fairs 2018

It’s that time of year when the annual Marshfield Fair happens. This is a popular local fair where all the Massachusetts farmers get to show off their agricultural skills & compete to win for the best pumpkins, pigs, and honey. This is also a day when we as attendees get a pass to eat ANYTHING fried.  I’ve been coming here ever since I was a tween. The fair always felt so big, like there were endless rides, games & food vendors. Of course, what always caught my eye was the delicious street food. As a child, I enjoyed the rides. Especially anything that went upside down orRead More →

Sunday Is For Football 2018

Once the NFL draft happens in April, the countdown is on in my house. We have to complete any lingering household projects before the start of football preseason. Because August through February every Sunday in my house consists of football, more football, and food! Being from New England we are all die-hard Patriots (“Pats” as we call them) fans, however my significant other is a Washington Redskins fan (we pity him). Overall we both take our football very serious but it’s good rival fun. Sunday is completely planned out around the Patriots game schedule. We usually have the prime time game and its played onRead More →
