K made Dinner

For the first time ever K made dinner.  Ok he has made microwave things and spaghetti before but never something from an actual recipe.  So because he is now 14 (15 in April) I figured it was about time that he learned.

We found a simple oven recipe.  For a first time he didn't want a ton of ingredients or other work.

I had to show him how to figure out how to get 20oz of hash browns from a 30oz bag using our handy dandy kitchen scale we got to test here. This thing is so handy to have.

We altered the recipe a little by adding more shredded cheese on top.

It looks ok.

It tastes good

Other than being a little nervous cutting the sausage and putting it in the hot oven he did very well for a first timer.  K even had seconds and complemented the cook lol.

I think that I am going to have to find another simple meal that he can make himself.

If you know of a simple recipe that a 14 tear old can try making on his own please let me know.  We do have a crock pot and he is out of school on Thursday and Friday to try something that way too.



  1. I think that's great your son is learning to cook. There're many easy crock pot recipes he can cook by himself. Try Red Beans or any type of beans in the crock pot ..super easy. Add, sausage , bell peppers,onions and green onions. Thank you for linking up with us at the Click and Chat Link Up Party! Have a great night! Kim @ This Ole Mom
