Holiday cooking: Bread pudding recipe for kids
Do you have fussy eaters at your house? Cooking for kids is always better if the kids join you in the kitchen.
At my house, if I want the cooking project to be a success, then the kids need to be in charge. And grown-ups need to chill. Don't worry about the mess while the kids cook, as long as all of the cooks agree to help with the clean up afterwards.
I love to hear about families cooking together. For example, Sisters Belle (13) and Liv (11) started cooking with their dad when they were only two. They started the Spatulatta: Cooking 4 Kids Online series in 2005 and won the prestigious James Beard award in 2006.
Bread pudding is a great way to use up leftover French bread.
