Celebrate Kids


It’s never too early to get the kids cooking!

Get your children involved in the kitchen by introducing them to measuring tools that will have them pouring, sifting and whipping up a big batch of fun!

  1. sifting – Fill sifter with flour and gently squeeze the handle to sift flour into a dry, clean bowl.
  2. measuring liquid – Pour liquid into a liquid measuring cup, then bend over at eye level to check the marks; the liquid should be at the mark, not above or below.
  3. Leveling – Fill measuring cup to overflowing, then use the back of a knife to sweep over the cup’s top edge to level off at brim.
  4. separating an egg – Carefully crack egg open; gently pass yolk back and forth in the shells while the white drips into a bowl.

Recipe-writers love shorthand; these abbreviations are near-universal:

• T or Tbs = tablespoon
• t or tsp = teaspoon
• c = cup
• oz = ounce
• gms or g = grams (1 ounce = about 28 grams; if a recipe calls for 100 grams, it’s equivalent to about 1/2 cup)
