Cooking and baking are great ways to incorporate math, reading comprehension, and following directions into a fun activity! Over the summer, one PA Virtual parent challenged her children to help come up with breakfast and dinner ideas for the family. Seventh grader, Sarah Hallberg, shares her experience and her great-grandmother's 'famous' sticky bun recipe! Make sure to read to the end to get the recipe!
My Cooking Experience By: Sarah Hallberg
This summer, our mom challenged Isaac, Eli and me to find recipes for 7 breakfasts and 7 dinners. Where from? We searched online for breakfast and dinner ideas and found a bunch of websites with fun recipes.
It was really fun to find recipes that looked delicious, and even more fun to make them. We found all sorts of meals and a few of the recipes I chose were pasta salad, pancakes, a breakfast parfait, and spaghetti and meatball bites.I even got to bake my grandma’s famous sticky buns! Yum!
We chose a variety of types of foods such as quesadillas, coffee cake, waffles, and Italian foods.There are lots of varieties in the meals that we chose. It is a really fun thing to try, and you get to find lots of ways to cook simple things, like spaghetti and meatballs. It was a great opportunity to learn more about cooking, and it is really cool to find all sorts of different foods. I think that Mommy was a genius to come up with this idea.
