food fun

One of the great things about having so many readers in the house is that we can all share with everyone else what is being learned along the way, which has a way of increasing the joy.  Sometimes, which you can interpret as just about as often as I'll let them, my young readers find some craft or recipe that "they just have to try."  That is how we found ourselves in the kitchen making apple empanaditas recently...they were pretty, but after the taste test we all agreed that we prefer our regular old yummy apple pie recipe which is a lot easier to make.  That being said, we had a lot of fun in the kitchen trying them out just the same.

 Bekah, rolling out the dough
MJ and Paul working on filling the crusts, forking them closed, 
"painting" them with egg whites and sprinkling sugar on top.

If your family has a favorite easy kid-creatable recipe, we'd love for you to pass it along to us.  We're looking for ideas as the cooler weather invites us to more experimentation in the kitchen.  If you write them in the comments section, anyone else who is interested can swoop 'em up and try them with their kiddo's too. 

Looking forward to what shows up...thanks, Connie

  1. Pizza Boats! We were just talking about this with my mother in law!

    Mix together -

    Pizza Sauce
    Whatever pizza toppings you like

    Spoon it on top of english muffins and put them on a pan to bake - 400 for 8-12 minutes.

    These also freeze great!
