Recipe Weekend a Deaux: Kids Who Love to Cook Website and Videos

Kids Who Love to Cook logo:src=

“Kids Who Love to Cook” is launching its second season of webisodes and cooking videos.  The newly-launched website and cooking series takes you into the kitchen with seven real-life kids to show their love of food and to teach viewers about cooking, and how to bring the family together at home. The website and series, which feature kids cooking videos, recipes, food adventures and contests, for the beginner cook, future chefs, and foodies can be found online at

“Season two has some amazing things in store for our viewers from Baked Chicken, Pain Au Chocolate Bread Pudding, Mussels Three Ways, and Ricotta Pancakes,” said 13 year-old Abby. “It’s so much fun for me to be able to cook for people and help them learn to love new things just like I do! We even did a chocolate episode to show where chocolate comes from.”

“Kids Who Love to Cook” embraces personal preferences and encourages kids to prepare food from their family history, as well as new ideas and trends like gluten-free and vegetarian dishes. All dishes seen on “Kids Who Love to Cook” are easily prepared and enjoyed at home. The show does not use swap-outs — the dishes that are shown in the end are the actual dishes made by the kids.

“Kids Who Love to Cook” is currently running an online contest to submit your favorite apple dish – winners will receive an iPad and “star” in a video with Abby and Isabelle.  More info can be found here - Apple Dish Contest. But HURRY, as it ends February 29th! 

Here's a great recipe from the series!

  1. What a great idea and yummy recipe. In a world where drive thru restaurants are the norm, it's great to see people investing in their children by teaching them how to cook and be fiscally responsible - oh and eat food with flavor to boot.
