Here is a review from one mom:

From a “seasoned mom”: “I always encouraged my son to come in and cook or bake with me…he loved running the hand mixer and did great with it. As a homeschooling mom I started teaching him to cook, create menus and budget the food money. At 25 he manages the household food budget helps to plan the meals, helps to shop and put away food and is the primary cook in the family. He loves trying new recipes or adapting and changing up old favorites. “ That’s what we want for our kids, right? If you’re a little unsure of your own kitchen skills – or how to get them down to a kids’ level – this incredible course can help.

The classes are easy and already set out for you so there is virtually no planning at all. Check out the curriculum map here: KCRF Curriculum Map

Happy Homeschooling!
