Teaching teens to cook is a valuable skill they will use for the rest of their lives. When teens know how to cook, they can eat healthier and not rely on fast food and food delivery apps.
Our kids learned to cook at a young age. They spent a lot of time in the kitchen with us learning to peel and chop vegetables. Measuring ingredients was another task they had while helping us to prepare meals. Now our youngest is 17 and he can cook a full meal for the family by himself, although no one in this house ever gets the kitchen to themselves.
With the help of our teens as well as the older kids, we have compiled a list of the top six recipes they have enjoyed making. These recipes have also been tested by their friends who have learned to cook from our kids.
Baking Recipes That Are Easy For Teens
Our daughters love to bake and they are always baking something. They love to share cookies and sweet breads or muffins with their friends. These recipes are their favourites to make and share.
Easy BBQ Recipes For Teens
Our kids grew up with BBQ. They learned every kind of BBQ from charcoal to gas by the time they hit their teenage years. Not every kid is as lucky. But if you have a teen who wants to learn, these recipes are easy enough and can all be made using a gas grill or an outdoor griddle.
Remember that teaching teenagers to cook is a skill they can use for the rest of their lives. Cooking encourages creativity and is a valuable asset to learn.
