10 Kitchen Gadgets for Cooking with Kids

Val Curtis

Summer is just around the corner and I will be handing more of the cooking over to my kids! We love our kitchen gadgets around here and this list of 10 kitchen gadgets for cooking with kids will make it a little bit safer and easier to manage. I have really come to love having my kids in the kitchen with me and you can plan to see them regularly on Facebook LIVE this summer sharing some of their favorite recipes!

A few of their favorites from the past are Daniel Tiger’s Veggie Spaghetti, Freezer Jam, Browned Butter Apple Bread and Sesame Noodles. Wait to see what they have up their sleeves for you this summer.

I had to introduce all of them to you properly, so I did a little BonBon Break LIVE via Facebook. Enjoy!
