“The other night my 7 year old Emma wanted to "cook" dinner by herself. I thought for a minute, and decided yes with appropriate supervision, of course. The easiest recipe I know is also pretty darn frugal. Just use whatever meat, cheese and dressing you have on hand! And yes, Emma made the entire thing, except for putting it in the oven. The Italian Loaf was good, but her self esteem is priceless! (The preparation time noted is when I do it. Children will take much longer!)”
