Julia Childs meet special needs cooks!

I'm not a gourmet cook, but really love cooking with kids.  In school, there are a myriad of considerations to take into account when preparing food with children---allergies, school nutrition guidelines, sanitation, time, cost, availability of appliances, and the general pickiness of some kids.  That being said, cooking is a nice way to present a sequenced set of directions with the end product hopefully being something yummy!  I was pleasantly surprised to see a website all about cooking with special needs kids.  In addition, it was developed by a Girl Scout for her gold award!  (Both of my daughters are lifetime Girl Scouts.)

Click here for the website!

Here are some screen shots.

Each recipe has a lesson guide

Way to go, Girl Scouts!!!!!
