Cook with your Kids Bloggers Competition (Win a Range Cooker worth £995)

Today – Cook with your Kids Bloggers Competition


I love cooking with my kids and  I think it is rather fabulous way of spending some time together.

I am absolutely delighted to have been asked to be one of three judges to judge this rather splendid bloggers cooking with kids competition.  The prize is this pretty amazing range oven …..

All you need to do is simply – cook with your kids! Choose a dish to cook, the more fun and messier the better, and get creative with it,  then blog about it and include some photos. Do take a look at  Rangecookers competition page for the full details.


Cook with your Kids Bloggers Competition

Here is a post by me as an example of the kind of blog post we are looking for…

Lisi’s Famous Choc Chip Cookies

Me and Lisi love to cook together. She is 5 and I am 41 and yet our skill levels are about the same. I know what I like to eat and what looks good but my baking is somewhat hit and miss. I am a bit slapdash with measurements and don’t always have all the ingredients in the house to make the food she wants to make . But we go for it anyway. Her enthusiasm and love of cooking makes it all worthwhile .

Here she is making her famous chocolate chip cookies (well the neighbours and her great granny love them) Annalise likes to do it pretty much all by herself  so I help with measuring and she pretty much does the rest. Her absolutely favourite part is licking the spoon clean!

You will need:

  • 75 g soft brown sugar
  • a large egg
  • 75 g soft butter
  • 100 g chocolate chips
  • 150 g self raising flour
  • few drops of vanilla essence


1. Cream butter and sugar then beat in the egg.  Add a few drops of vanilla essence too.
3. Stir in flour and chocolate chip chunks keep stirring till it makes a dough.
4. Place balls  of dough (slightly flattened) on greased baking tray.
5. Bake at 180 for 10 minutes or until golden brown
This cooking session resulted in lots of mess on the floor and in her (refused to tie it up) hair but no one is bothered. The cookies as usual turn out lovely. But I’ don’t really care.

It’s the fact she’s turned out SO LOVELY  that I most care about. Straight away she wants to take one to our elderly neighbour who delights in her frequent baking., She wants to put one to one side for daddy and take some to her playdate as a gift. I am so proud of her sharing ways. I am proud to of the fierce independence she shows, her desire to learn new things, her persistence and how wonderful she is to spend time with. I love her so much.

Cooking with your kids is fab.

I am so looking forward to reading about your cooking sessions. Good luck to you if you enter the Rangecookers competition

    Not quite old enough to cook with yet. But she knows where the washer is (and put her great-grandad’s hanky – it was clean however – in the washer – must have seen me do it so many times) so I imagine cooking will be the next step. Although just bought her a pretend cooker (the pan sizzles) for her birthday. 🙂 😀 x

    My son loves cooking and we experiment with different herbs from the garden on our food we cook. We also juice quite a lot and this is great because it makes them stop and really taste the flavours we have mixed. Would love to win the cooker! X
