Family Time – Cooking up a Storm with the Children and Grandchildren


I love cooking as you probably realized by now – and my grandchildren love it too! They run in, give me a hug, and put on their aprons! Pulling up their chairs to the counter they are ready to roll – preferably to make cookies and cakes although ‘Cheesy Eggs’ are a definite favorite! Here is that recipe.


  • One egg per child ( possibly two per adult!)
  • Dash of milk
  • 2 Tbsp of Butter unsalted
  • 1/2 Cup of Shredded cheese ( Cheddar is good)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl – the children love to do this so be prepared for shell chips! It really is no big deal – just slide them out and relax!
  2. Add a dash of milk – children do not know what a dash is – so a tablespoon is a good measure to use!
  3. Whisk – this is the fun part. I have a small colorful whisk per child – they LOVE to do it – and again prepare yourself for a mess – just mop it up ( also a good reason to add a few more eggs than are needed as some ends up on the counter or on the floor).
  4. Melt the butter in a frying pan and pour the whisked mixture in
  5. Keep the heat on medium low and begin scraping the sides and bottom of the pan with a spatula.
  6. Add the shredded cheese and stir into the mixture until all is cooked
  7. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed
