Cooking is a life skill that every youth should have the opportunity to develop. Kids in the Kitchen is a youth program from Ohio State University Extension that is designed to do exactly that. Basic skills such as how to follow a recipe, measure ingredients, use a sharp knife, utilize the oven, stovetop burners, and a microwave are all essential skills that are part of this program.

Normally, this program is offered as a session of events allowing youth to work together with an OSU educator and volunteers, but due to the current restrictions put in place as we navigate through the Coronavirus pandemic, we are offering this program virtually. Below you will find two awesome series of videos and recipes. The first is "Fiesta Edition" and our second is "Pizza Celebration". These virtual series will allow you to enjoy preparing, cooking, and serving several fun and delicious recipes while developing those essential cooking life skills.

Each video is accompanied by the recipe. Please view the recipe first so that you can gather the necessary ingredients and supplies needed to "cook" along with Chris Kendle (Family and Consumer Science Educator) and her family.  

Please note that an adult should be present and assisting youth while preparing and cooking the recipes due to the use of sharp knives and hot surfaces.
