Cooking Necessities – Middle School Monday

dessert apples recipe

Miss L (I cannot believe she now fits the definition of a middle school student!!!) has been expressing a desire to learn how to cook more things lately. So, I have been trying to make a more intentional effort to bring her into the kitchen often to help prepare dinner.

Some of the things she has been learning how to cook:

  • bread (we use a bread maker so it is really quick and easy)
  • rice
  • dessert apples
  • potatoes
  • eggs (boiled and scrambled)
  • pizza
  • veggies (steaming them)

These are some of the more intentional items and dishes we have been working on in the last few weeks.

Since we love dessert apples, I thought you might like the “recipe.” I call it a recipe very loosely because it is really simple and you add things to the amount your family would like. 🙂

For our family of 5:

  • 5 small apples, diced
  • 3-4 T ground cinnamon (this is really a “to taste” measurement – change it as needed)
  • 1/2 C brown sugar (again, this is “to taste” – adapt as desired)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 C raisins

Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for about 8 minutes, stirring halfway through. These are best served warm.

At Home.

    I will have to ask the lad if he wants to add this to his repertoire as well. 🙂
