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)
- dessert apples
- eggs (boiled and scrambled)
- 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.
