Kids In The Kitchen: Week 5

June 29, 2009
Welcome to the Summer Series Boredom Busters!
Check out the whole series: Help! My Kids Are Driving Me Crazy!


What could be more fun than Breakfast for Dinner?

My Featured Foodie today is Kate of Cooking During Stolen Moments! She comes up with fabulous baking ideas and I’m excited to share her Breakfast Pizza!? What… you ask, is that?

Well lately my kids have been GaGa over biscuits and gravy. We’ve been eating ’em for dinner for pete’s sake! So when I saw her breakfast pizza idea… I WENT Yippee!

Here’s What Kate said about her recipe:

Breakfast pizza has always been a bit of a mystery to me. I’ve eaten it a few times at restaurants and really enjoyed. So I’ve always wanted to tackle making it myself. However, all of the recipes I’ve seen for it have seemed like they would be too dry.

Today I finally figured out a creative solution and decided to have some fun experimenting. I’m so glad I did because the results were delicious. This recipe is somewhere between a cross of sausage and gravy with biscuits and breakfast pizza. It’s a perfect any-time-of-day meal.

For the recipe and instructions please click over to Kate’s Cooking Blog.. we plan to make it this weekend, and she assures me we can cheat and use store-bought biscuits or crescent rolls to speed up the meal and make it easy for my kids to make it!

And totally check out her other site when you have a chance:

We made a kid friendly test kitchen out of this recipe. I handed Sadie (11) and Sassy (8) the recipe, made sure they knew where all the ingredients were, and walked away….

I give you:

Quite possibly the easiest Kid Friendly Recipe in the world. Maybe the Universe!

Take it away Rachel!


Does this picture make your mouth water? Rachel says Monkey Bread is one of her favorite breakfasts because it’s easy, tonguegasmically delectable, has a fun name and it’s so versatile.


She serve this with Milk, Coffee and Fresh Fruit. It’s fabulous for Brunches, Holiday Breakfasts, Bible Studies, Baby Showers, you get the idea.~~~~~~~~

Boredom Buster Summer Ideas for Kids

June 19, 2008
Welcome to the Summer ’08 Boredom Buster Series!
Please enjoy and then take a peak at this year’s Series!


This summer my girls have made a list.

A very long list. Complete with categories. Complete with 8 different 30 minute activities per day. That’s a total of 4 hours of don’t ask mom, “What can I do?”
Because Mom will reply, “have you checked the LIST?”.

First item on the list:

COOKING

They spent most of an HOUR (think about that…a whole hour entertaining themselves) reading through a couple kid cookbooks and all my back issues of Everyday Food.

And…

They came up with lots of things they can make.

And…

They made a list of ingredients we didn’t have on hand.

And after Dad (with mom riding the Jazzy rider thing in the grocery store…you know the one…Hey. It was my first outing after the foot surgery) bought those necessary ingredients…

They made Strawberry Bread. Yup. After pouring over cookbooks. They weren’t going to start out small. No. Sir. Ree.

See the little loaf pans, ready to enter the oven? Yeah, they can’t see ’em either.

Because what’s the point of cooking anything until you’ve licked the beaters, eh?

Suggested Serving? WITH cream cheese. And they put it on the list and we bought it. You bet your beautiful patooti they were eating it WITH cream cheese.
And it WAS good with cream cheese. (But it smelled better.)

Would you like to know what else is on their Summertime Doldrums List?
Good.
Cuz, I’ll be posting it next week.
