If you have been reading Little Miss Kate for a while you know that I often get Monkey involved in helping me cook in the kitchen. I think it is so important to teach children the skills to create meals for themselves, and we make some great memories along the way.
We recently had the opportunity to learn a new recipe with Chef Amanda Riva using Uncle Ben’s products right in my own kitchen! Together with my friend Jenn from 1 Heart, 1 Family and her children we were cooking up a storm in no time! As part of the Uncle Ben’s Beginners Program we put the kids to work cooking in the kitchen to make Chicken Gumbo (found in week 4 recipes). Not only was this recipe easy to make and a HUGE hit with the kids, but it is also Gluten-free making it a great option for when we have guests with dietary restrictions.
