Broccoli and cheese frittata is just one of the meals I have taught my son to cook. As a mom to a soon to be a college student, I have been trying to teach my son some kitchen skills. I wanted to know that he could feed himself when he left home and not rely strictly on Ramen and take out. The best part of this adventure is the memories we made together while learning a necessary skill.
So when Nellie’s asked me to talk about cooking with kids this summer I was happy to help because I knew the joy it had brought me. Plus the eggs taste amazing.
Summer is so close we can taste it! And while “summer school” often gets a bad rap, Nellie’s Free Range Eggs wants parents and kids to get into the kitchen and prepare delicious egg-centric recipes during its own “Nellie’s Summer School” this June.
If you’re not already familiar, Nellie’s is committed to providing better lives for hens, which means better eggs for you and your family! Coming from the first Certified Humane® farm in the country, Nellie’s girls (aka hens) are never caged and have as much, or as little, access to outside as they want.
Easy to prepare, inexpensive and nutrient-dense, eggs are one of the most versatile and nutritious meals or snack options around. Plus, they’re a great first food to get kids into the kitchen and interested in cooking at an early age.
