Spent a lot of time with my grandparents too through most of my younger years. Spent lots of time in the kitchen with grandma. That reminds me I need call dibs on that pasta roller .My Grandmother got me interested at 5-6.
Both my kids love to be in the kitchen as well. Making homemade pizza is their favorite .
(I know thats not pizza )
Son wants to cook every meal lol, I try to let them do as much as they can.
