this week in my kitchen

A busy week for us, winding up the school year. But there is always something happening in the kitchen.

Once a week, the kids have to cook dinner, we call it Kids Cook Night. The Girl is perfecting her Pasta with Red Sauce technique, and is quite good! Here’s what she looks like while she tends the pot.


Baked Chicken Parmesan from Skinnytaste is another people-pleaser in our house. Everyone else had pasta as a side dish, but I skipped it this time.IMG_1976-001

My favorite way to eat the rainbow, chicken stirfry.

    Your idea to let the kids cook dinner once a week is great, I think I will try when my son will grow a little more (he is four). Your photos are so nice, thanks for sharing

    When all my babies were home they each had cooking nights too, life skills are so important. I’m glad they know how to all cook since two of my boy’s married girls who don’t know how to cook!
    Caramel brownies? Oh yes!

    I think having the kids cook one meal a week is a great idea! Maybe we need to start something like that here. 🙂 The caramel brownies look divine!
