Although the goal for weeknights is ultimately to prepare a quick meal for my family to enjoy together at the dinner table, weekends enable a far more pleasurable kitchen experience where we can spend quality time together. My kids often take turns playing my “sous chef” which means that they peel carrots or grate cheese for example. They have even more fun when we choose a recipe that they can really help with, like decorating cupcakes, baking cookies or making pizza. Yes, there will be a bit of a mess but its so worth it to see them smile, hear them giggle and watch them enjoy eating their own creations!
