I am not much of a recipe person – but I do often glance at one when I’m making something new, just to get enough of an idea to then be able to wing it on my own. That was my plan with Extraschooling’s Experimental Kitchen: to create a cookbook for kids that offered starting points, terms, inspiration, and activities to help them feel comfortable and capable in the kitchen. There are quick questions, recipe frameworks, hints, techniques to go research, and lots of space for them to turn this book into their very own keepsake collection of recipes.
Sample a few of these elements with the download below, then keep scrolling for one of our go-to experimental recipes!
Who am I? Foremost, the lucky momma of an amazing boy. To be perfectly honest, I am less his teacher than he is my inspiration - I have learned at least as much from him in the last eight years as he has from me.
I am an old-timer at heart; I'd rather live on a farm, garden, crochet, and raise my kid out in the sun than anything else. I'm a bit of a technological dinosaur, more geared toward life where you can get your hands dirty and have some fun exploring, learning, and growing. I'm a homeschooled, homeschooling single parent with a passion for my son, nature, and the simple life.
I am not here to pretend I know it all or lay out the research or provide a step-by-step game plan. I hope to encourage and inspire families to join in the journey of learning together - and have the fun that life is supposed to be made of along the way. Happy exploring!
