I have a love hate relationship with baking but it’s one of the few things that the kids can always help with. That is until I came across profiteroles. These are not a kid friendly recipe. The finished product though are a perfect kid friendly food. These bite size, dainty pastries are the just right […]

Today is Chinese New Year. It’s the Chinese culture’s most important celebration as it is a time for family reunion. Our plan was to celebrate with a fun food activity, making Fortune Cookies.
