Cooking by Letters

This summer I have ben really trying to keep my kids engaged in learning out from in front of the tv. One thing that we have been doing is focusing on letters of the alphabet. We go through 2-3 letters a week.The kids are practicing writing their letters and coming up with words that start with the letter. One activity that we are doing is cooking a recipe that starts with our letter that day.

A few items that we are going to check out are:

Apple slices with different dips.
Banana Muffins
Chocolate Chip Chickpea cookies
Egg rolls
Gooey butter cake
Hot dog soup -  favorite from my grandmother
Ice cream
Jello Jigglers
Lemon ice
Macaroni and cheese
Nacho ordinary nachos
Orange glazed Pork
Quinoa salad
Soup (alphabet of course)
Upside down cake
Venison Sliders
Watermelon ice
Zucchini Fritters

What is your favorite way to keep the kids involved in preparing dinner?
