Learning to cook is a great way for teens and 'tweens to boost self confidence and self reliance, be more helpful to busy parents and have more fun at home. Each week, you and your new friends will pack a lunch for school and prepare a nutritious dinner and eat together. You’ll also be in charge of the playlist!!!
