Alfredo bacon and pasta


Being in the kitchen can be a lot of fun for not only the children but their adult helpers as well. Be sure to teach your children kitchen safety. Remind them of hot water, sharp knives and hot cooking surfaces. Teaching them safety in the kitchen also teaches them good habits that will last a lifetime.
