I’ve got something to give you today.

Favorite family tradition in the kitchen…. I LOVE seeing my boys lick the beaters from whatever cake, cookie, or brownie mix I’m making. The smiles and giggles that ensue are precious, yes… even at nearly 13 and nearly 10! :)

When I grew up as a child my Hungarian mother taught all of her five daughters how to polka in a tiny cramped kitchen.She always had polka music playing in the kitchen daily.So I guess this was a tradition that we grew up since it makes me smile and stands out in my mind.

My favorite kitchen family tradition is cooking fudge with my dad every year around christmas. I stir, while he does all the hard stuff, and we make tons for friends and family. Everyone always tells me my dad makes the best fudge, I just smile because the recipie isn’t even all that secret, I think he just has a special way with it.

Every Christmas I make homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast, along with all the usual fan fare of Christmas Dinner. I guess it’s pretty simply, but every Holiday or Season there are things the family and I do together, we pick strawberries and raspberries to make jam, we make homemade dinner rolls for Thanksgiving. It’s simple things but traditions that we all look forward to.

I love when several generations get together to help with a meal in the kitchen, my kids & I with my mom and grandma, maybe a few aunts. It doesn’t happen much these days, but when it does it warms my heart!

Funny thing – We aren’t even remotely Italian…

As a mom of two little girls I’m busy starting new family traditions. Every Sunday my oldest (4) pulls her stool up to the counter so she can be my su chef. She’s already great at leveling off flour, unwrapping the butter & licking the beaters!

My favorite tradition happens on Christmas Day. My parents come to visit, and my mom and I cook the big meal. We have been cooking together since I was a child. It’s fun now that I’m a real-live grown up, that all the cooking now happens in my house. ;o)

My husband and I have a running contest (13 years now) with opening new jars of peanut butter. Whoever opens the new jar gets to stick their finger in first and scoop out a dilicious glob…and eat it in front of the other…weird I know! :)

My favorite family tradition is baking birthday pies for the men in my life. My grandpa and my dad both preferred apple pie to cake, and lo and behold, when I married my husband, I discovered that he felt the same way! :)

My favorite tradition is making roll out sugar cookies with my 2 kids. I used to only make them on Christmas Eve, but now that they are a little older we make them together a few times a year.

Our family tradition was simply FUN! My mom was so full of energy it was contagious. Whether it was licking the beaters, chasing each other around the island, or simply singing along to some country music while we stirred (the most common); I knew early on that if cooking couldn’t be fun it wasn’t worth the time ;o)

My favorite tradition has been one that connects me to my new family! Every Thanksgiving I make my husband’s aunt’s sweet potato rolls recipe. He loves that it reminds him of home (we live 3,000 away from all family) and I love that it is now a tradition for our family.

I have many traditions I’m beginning with my children, but one of my favorite activities in the kitchen is to do candy making. So now my 10 year old helps me to dip strawberries, pretzels, oreos etc into chocolate treats that we give to our friends and neighbors every time a holiday (or any good excuse comes along) comes up….

Baking cookies with my twin boys… Seeing how happy they are knowing they are helping and then watching them light up when they get to eat them is the best part.

As a young mom with 3 kids under the age of 3 at the time, the only way I could cook or bake each day was to keep the kids in the kitchen with me. The only way I could make sure that they all remained in sight was to turn on the “tunes”…we could sing all the kids faves by heart! Now that they are all grown and growing their own families times in the kitchen are few and far between, but when they all come home for a visit, they all end up in the kitchen…of course the… Read more »

Everyone getting along baking christmas cookies!! This last year, I was doing the baking, my parents were frosting and my sister was decorating. Then we all enjoyed cookies together it was so much fun!!

Guest

We’re working on family traditions since our kids are now old enough to help bake/cook stuff. One of their favorite things to do is decorate cookies for whatever holiday it is! They had a blast doing turkey cookies!

Lately my husband and I have been enjoying a new tradition -teaming up and cooking a month’s worth of meals in one day. Something that started out intimidating to us has turned into a great date. We send the toddler off with a friend, open a bottle of wine (or two) order pizza, and blast our favorite tunes. We end up with with a packed freezer, and a happier team.

My favorite family tradition was making Christmas cookies with my grandma, great- grandma and mother. The past 2 years my 3 year old daughter and I have been the ones in the kitchen preparing all of our family Christmas cookies.

Favorite memory, when each of my kids were young, watching them on a chair by sink, “washing dishes” in nothing but a diaper after we had baked some cookies or brownies.

I love to cook and bake and so much of our lives revolve around the kitchen. Love to have the whole family in there, chatting and joking around while I’m cooking!

Guest

Our favorite tradition is that I have built-in taste testers. They lick beaters, sample, and make “rejects” that just must be eaten. They often proclaim “this is terrible” to trick others so they can have more for themselves.

Favorite family tradition – we have a lot – but everytime I make pancakes – Andrew is there cracking eggs and mixing.

Guest

Right now our favorite kitchen traditions are breakfast burritos every Friday morning and homemade calzones every Friday night. Over time the ingredients have changed and every week we assure each other that these are the best ones yet :)

I guess one of my favorite traditions would be the Christmas cookies we make every year.

Guest
February 16, 2012 7:12 pm

Honestly, my mother didn’t cook a lot growing up, and I don’t have kids yet. However, someday I would really like to start the tradition of having each of my kids be able to make requests (taking turns), periodically, and then help mommy bake/cook what they wanted. :)

My favorite tradition in the kitchen would have to be baking day; my family always gets together before Christmas and spends an entire day baking goodies. I also love baking goodies for my hubby to surprise him after work :)

P.S. It’s my birthday today, so it would be super awesome if I won this :)
