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!
- sifting – Fill sifter with flour and gently squeeze the handle to sift flour into a dry, clean bowl.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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)
