As many of the regulars know i am floor manager in a independent cookware and gourmet foods shop. I also write the monthly news letter. That is where I need your help. I am thinking about an edition devoted to kids and cooking. I've been to the web to sniff out some recipes and suggestions and frankly I am appalled. Most of the sites are run buy the big corporations who hire, I am ashamed to say home economists, of which I am one, to develop recipes. I find lots of sugar and very little nutritional value in those recipes. The one exception I found is a website called Kaboose. Granted many of the recipes are a bit more difficult than Rice Krispy Squares but certainly achievable by children tall enough to reach the cook top and may need a little adult help.
What were your childhood favorites that you could make by yourself or with a little help? You certainly did not become Chowhounds by eating and making back of the box recipes.
