I just loved having my family come to visit. My niece Kaylani (5yr old) would put our aprons on and make all kinds of stuff.
We made the raw apple pie recipe I posted a few weeks ago, since that is such an easy one for kids to help with.
It is such a great way to show kids how to prepare real foods and to teach them so many things while having fun at the same time.
If you have kids, I highly encourage getting them involved in the kitchen at an early age, so they learn while they are young. For me, since I don't have kids yet, it is so fun for me to just pour into other people's kids.
