We have a Nespresso machine, and it has been my goal since my daughter was around 2 years old to teach her to make me a latte. I figured, if she learned how to operate the simple machinery, then I could lounge on the couch and have her bring me a perfectly frothed latte.
OK, so that didn’t quite happen, but I do have the intention of teaching her to make me something for a change.
This weekend is Mother’s Day, a day dedicated usually to shuttling between parents, sitting at overpriced brunches while you yell at the kids to sit down, and doling out unappreciated gifts you spent the last two weeks rushing around to procure. So, if nothing else, why not let your kids cook for you for a change?!
These recipes require limited cooking or cutting and can be done with even the most minimal supervision from your partner. It may not be a gourmet, homemade latte delivered to you while relaxing in bed, but it probably beats standing in line waiting for $17 pancakes.
