Taking a night off from the hustle and bustle of work and cooking with your kids can be beneficial for all parties involved. Learning to cook and understand the merits at a young age is essential for children as it sets them up with a valuable skill for life and let’s face it, cooking delicious desserts and other foods can be a lot of fun, both during the preparation and of course, the actual eating.
With a great selection of new recipes, Anchor has provided this very opportunity and now spending a night cooking is highly encouraged and easy to do with these accessible recipes, promising fun for all the family.
Some of the most well-loved and fancied dishes are available in Anchor’s new recipe list and by letting the kids get involved with the preparation beforehand, everyone can get in the cooking spirit. Different meats are featured throughout the select recipes and parents may see it as an ideal opportunity to teach their children about where the different meats come from or they may prefer to get involved in the desserts, mixing flour and chocolate and other delights.
The beauty of Anchor’s new recipes is that they promote starting from phase one. There will be no buying cookies or muffins; everything is made from scratch and so the children feel like they’ve contributed and worked. Knowing that they’ve made an effort will appease them and they’re more likely to eat something if they know they’ve been involved heavily in the process. With this in mind, many of Anchor’s recipes are wonderfully healthy and it encourages children to pick from a wider range of foods; a range that they wouldn’t have had the luxury of sampling before.
The dessert section features some classics, including Banoffee Pie. This is a perfect recipe to consider making with the kids as it combines a great deal of ingredients from biscuits to bananas, features simple guidelines which anyone can follow and using products such as Anchor Butter and Cream, the dessert will go great with whatever dinner you decide to make with your successful night in.
