Make cooking Fun with these cute sleeping bear pastries
Some of my fondest memories as a child are from being in the kitchen. Getting to help my Nannie, Aunt Peggy and Momma made me love cooking the way I do! I got my girls helping in the kitchen early. It was fun for them to help roll out BISCUITS and as they got older they wanted to learn more!
Getting your kids interested in cooking doesn't have to be done in a complicated way. Ours always loved making this ITALIAN CRESCENT ROLL CASSEROLE. You can use store-bought items to make cooking with kids easy and fun! Want another fun and easy cooking project with your kids? Check out this recipe for HOMEMADE ROCK CANDY.
