Using Sweets and Science to Interest Boys in Cooking

Deserts can also be a good attraction to getting boys interested in cooking: I remember as a kid myself.  I don't know how it happened, I wouldn't be surprised if my parents calculated to figure out what would tempt me.  My mom made great chocolate mouse when we had special guests.  I loved it.  At some point I learned how to cook it.

Also if they are interested in science, like I am, cooking actually has very interesting chemistry going on.  Which I never knew as a kid.  Showing them this can be fun.  I would have taken to cooking more if this was thrown in, I think:
