The Peterson Culinary Institute is now OPEN!

In response to the younger girls wanting to learn to cook, we have opened a Culinary Institute on the premises. Each day they will have a cooking assignment like making muffins, salad, etc. Culminating each week with making dinner and dessert on Saturday. This week they made a GREAT chili, and a chocolate pudding which needed some work. Ahem. Guess you can't be good at everything all at once.

Try it at your house... your girls will like it!


  1. What a cute idea! How do you decide what they are going to learn each week? Do they choose things? Do you have a book with suggestions? Lisa~

  2. Basically I'll wing it. Which is what I do with 90% of my life. ;) I'll see what I want them to help me make, and teach them. I know I will start this week with salads and muffins, as we always need these. Also pancakes from scratch, instead of a box will be on the list before too long.

    Glad to see you back online, Lisa!

  3. That is a great idea! My girls always want to help me cook, they each got a new cookbook for Christmas, only we have not done any of the recipes yet:)

  4. That is such a great idea! I can't wait till I have little ones to cook with!
