Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #kidsinthekitchen

Afterschool snacks tend to be healthy and on the small side so they don’t interfere with dinner. But there comes that moment when the kids are wanting something different than celery with peanut butter or a yogurt. That’s when the genius of Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats happens. I honestly think these are better than traditional […]

Cinnamon Apple Crisp #recipe #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 […]

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

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 […]

Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Power Bites #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 […]

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie Dough Blondies #kidsinthekitchen

One of childhoods greatest pleasures might be eating raw cookie dough. The chunky creamy sweet scoop on your finger is so satisfying but so not safe for kids. That’s why we make an egg-free cookie dough and add it to things like White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie Dough Blondies. I don’ t know why I […]

Do You Want To Build A Snowman from Marshmallows #kidsinthekitchen

I’ve said it before. I am not creative when it comes to making food into art. There are sites out there that transform everyday food into mini masterpieces like these Lego Movie pancakes from Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons or these Animal Pretzel shapes from Stop Looking Get Cookin. That didn’t stop Shae from […]

Fruit and Cream Filled Pastry Cups #kidsinthekitchen

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 […]
