We’ve always said we wanted to teach our children life skills before they turn 18. One of the most important that very few young adults can pull off well is cooking! I am beginning the boys with their first cooking lessons (I put it off until they had some maturity and were ready to take it more seriously – no major accidents in the kitchen, please!). So I’m putting together a series here on the blog of which meals I teach them, what skills they learn and how it turned out.
They are very excited about this next chapter and have created a list of meals they want to learn to make. I’m going to teach them exactly like my Momma taught me! I’ll let them begins hands on immediately as I walk them through safety measures and steps.
Erick started first and his choice was:
- Bacon maple brussel sprouts
- Teriyake Chicken
I created this printable to help myself and other parents teach their children the steps of proper cooking a full meal. I hope this helps! Click on the link below the graphic to print it off.

- Me: Erick, what did you learn tonight?
- Erick: I learned to start the food that takes the longest first. I also learned to be safe with knives and to be careful taking things out of the oven. I also learned how to cut brussel sprouts and read a recipe.
- Me: How do you like your cooking lessons so far?
- Erick: I LOVE IT! I really want to learn how to cook full meals by myself.
