Tips From Easy Recipes

  • Recipes for cooking at the stove, like this, although easy to prepare will need your supervision.
  • This is kid safe as a knife is not used in this recipe.
  • To make the kitchen kid safe when they cook pasta, please supervise when they are close to boiling water. Use the stove ring towards the back of the hot plate. Please take great care.
  • To make cooking ground beef, kid friendly, always only ever use premium grade ground beef.  Using quality meat means you omit the process of searing meat then draining, to remove all excess fat.
  • Always have clean washed hands when handling or cooking food.
  • Tinned vegetables are healthy to use as these are canned immediately and all the goodness is retained.  This saves so much time too. There should be no added preservatives to canned vegetables.
  • Teach the children it's not just to keep the kitchen kid friendly, but everyone should turn the pot handle away from the edge of the stove to prevent it from being accidentally knocked.
