Frozen Banana Pops #kidsinthekitchen

Frozen Banana Pops #kidsinthekitchen #recipe, cooking with kids

You know I’m always on the hunt for new snacks and treats for the kids. Lately they seem to be asking for ice cream all the time. Our pool snackbar has ice cream so it happens more often that it’s becoming an afternoon snack versus a once in a while treat. I wanted to find […]

Kids in the Kitchen making Cinnamon Apple Crisp #kidsinthekitchen

I love having a helper in the kitchen. Especially one that can read, measure (for the most part) and mix without getting most of the ingredients on the counter. Shae is gonna be one hell of cook and baker when she grows up because she’s always wanting to make something.  This week’s Cinnamon Apple Crisp […]




Smack ‘N’ Cheese Pizza #recipe Revolutionary Pizza #giveaway

Smack and Cheese Pizza by Revolutionary Pizza

For the last 7 years Friday night has been Pizza & Movie Night in the Babiak Household. It started with ordering pizza to buying dough from a local pizzeria to then making dough from scratch. We’ve had many variations of pizza with many different ingredients. My favorite is on the grill with a simple sauce, […]

Spinach and Cheese Bites #Recipe #kidsinthekitchen

Finding new lunch and snack ideas for the kids over the summer is on my to-do list. We wasted no time. The first day of summer break and we were experimenting in the kitchen with classics like pizza dough and not so favorites like spinach. My kids eat what I serve but I want them […]

In honor of the dad in our home, Rob, we came up with a treat for the nights we don’t get to spend by the fire. You see, we outfitted our yard with a firepit this spring, bought some chairs then bought some vintage furniture and are re-doing it and bought a hammock and got […]

Baking is one of the easiest and most fun ways to get your kids involved in the kitchen. It’s especially awesome when the child asks to make a particular dish. This Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is something I’ve been making for 12 years and everyone loves it. I’ve made little modifications over the […]




Chewy Coconut Cookies #recipe

chewy coconut cookies #recipe

I’m a cookie brat. I’m particular about the flavors and types of cookies I eat. I don’t eat packaged cookies except for the occasional Oreo or Samoa. I prefer my cookies fresh, made from scratch and warm. This means homemade cookies often get eaten before they’re even cooled. These Chewy Coconut Cookies are especially good when […]

Mac and Cheese Muffins #kidsinthekitchen

I hate to admit this but Shae prefers boxed mac and cheese to my homemade kind.The rest of the family prefers mine so most of the time she’s out voted. Sometimes when time is of the essence I have to rely on the boxed kind even though I don’t like it very much. I found […]

Italian Meatloaf Muffins #recipe #dinner

Everything tastes better in the form of a muffin. Muffins are cute, a great portion size and appealing to all ages. That’s why I love making meals in muffin form like these Italian Meatloaf Muffins. It’s Thursday, that means Shaun has basketball clinic from 3:15-5:15 then Lacrosse practice from 6:00-7″30. By the time we get […]

Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Power Balls #kidsinthekitchen

MOM! Can I have a snack? It’s 2 hours before dinner and the kids are hovering looking for a snack. I hate to say no but I know giving in will just ruin their appetite. Shae suggested we make oatmeal power bites. They are small enough to curb an appetite but are still healthy so […]
