The Family Kitchen

Age Range:3 years and up, with parent participation

What It’s About:Irresistible recipes, such as hot cocoa with homemade marshmallows, which will motivate the whole family to cook together.

Why We Love It:This is your go-to family cookbook. It’s got suggestions for staying busy on snow days and what to make for your next bake sale. Recipes, such as butternut squash gnocchi, are appealing to kids but refined enough for parents. And if you feel anxious about cooking with tots, this book even provides suggestions for what your young‘un can do on each recipe.

Fun Food Tip:Gnocchi is always a kid favorite. It’s better than play dough! Your kids will love to roll out the ropes of dough and then cut them into little pillows. Of course, this is one type of dough they get to devour after it’s been cooked.
