Okay, maybe not a prodigy, but I loved to cook as soon as I was able to get in the kitchen.
This past weekend, I was "strongly encouraged" to go through boxes of my stuff still in my parents attic and found an original newspaper clipping from the Hendersonville Times News when I was just 7. In the picture, I'm flipping a grilled cheese sandwich. I apparently learned how to set the table too.
If you're not already cooking with your kids, I think you should start now. I certainly can't wait to share cooking with my little guy! You can start small, like peeling garlic, cutting out cookies and folding napkins. And, before you know it, they'll be whipping up sauces and meals.
