Recipes to Get Your Kids in the Kitchen!


I know that my girls love to be in the kitchen with me, helping out as much as possible. Sometimes I am making things on the stove so they can't help. But these are recipes that your kids can do and you can help them! Not just your ants on a log!

Pizza ~
Premade pizza dough
Premade pizza sauce (Ragu is good)
Shredded Cheese
Other ingredients your family likes (if onions or peppers have them cut up ahead of time)
Lay it all out, preheat the oven to said temp on the dough and let them have at it!
You can make a side salad to go along with dinner. Kids can make the dinner and dad can clean up!

Apple Pie ~
6 slices Cinnamon-raisin bread
1 can (21 oz.) apple pie filling, drained
Preheat your broiler. Place cinnamon-raisin bread on a baking sheet and lightly toast under the broiler. Watch it as this will only take a minute or two!
Remove the baking sheet from the broiler and top each slice of toast with an equal amount of apple pie filling and a cheese slice. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, or until the filling is heated through.

Baboon Butter ~
3/4 c. peanut butter
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. raisins
3 sm. very ripe bananas
1 tbsp. shredded coconut
Mash peanut butter and bananas. Add cinnamon, raisins and coconut. Blend well. Spread on fruit, crackers and bread.
What are some recipes you can think of that kids can make?
