We’re still here. I promise. Just a few minor setbacks…

 

On second glance, I am not as thrilled with “Baking Through the Bible” as I was at first.

Oh, it looks good on the surface. The pictures are pretty. The stories sound good (I prefer KJV myself but most don’t so it works) and the recipes seem amazing. Until you try to actually do them.

First, most of them are NOT anything a young child would actually eat. I know, I know, I should have looked closer when I read through it and promised you all a walk through the recipes with my kids. But I didn’t and now we’re stuck with a bunch of recipes they won’t touch and 5 cookie recipes that are essentially the same exact cookie. And the kids are not exactly thrilled with this cookie. If it were tastier, they would love it but kids, they’re picky. It’s great that they look pretty but to actually get a kid to eat something, it has to taste good too.

So I could have made you all sit through 20 blog posts where I basically take you through the motions but have no real advice other than the kiddos probably won’t like this recipe, but it’s so much nicer to spare you that in my opinion.

So I will be back next week with a brand new step by step with some basic cooking lessons we’ve been doing with just normal everyday recipes.

…until I find some NEW recipes they will like.

THANK YOU for sticking with me!

Eggs à la Not me!

20130918-100549.jpg
Apparently I used to like eggs. My mother laments constantly that I stopped liking eggs because one of my teachers talked about not liking them.

During my adulthood I’ve given them several chances and I really tried to like them but I think it must be a texture issue. Anyway…

My children really enjoy scrambled eggs and I make them a lot so I figured this would be a great thing to teach. Also they have watched me make them many times over the years so they already know a bit about the process.

Apparently I was correct. A lot of what they’ve watched over the years has obviously stuck with them. That showed today as we went through the process.

Just a quick rundown of how we make scrambled eggs:

– Crack 3 – 5 eggs into a small mixing bowl
– Pour in a splash of milk
– Add a dash of salt and pepper
– Put about a teaspoon of butter into a medium size skillet. Place it on your stovetop and turn the heat on medium.
– Stir/whip the eggs with a fork until thoroughly scrambled
– Once the butter is all melted and spread out in the skillet, pour the egg mixture in.
– Using a soft spatula, scrape and scoop and flip the eggs constantly in the skillet – this will continue to scramble them as they cook.
– Once they’re done to your liking, scoop them out onto your plate.
– We like to sprinkle some shredded cheddar on top.

If you are also teaching your child to cook, make sure you mention to them that the skillet is very hot.

Voila!

Happy children! They helped and they have yummy eggs to eat!

No funny incidents to report this time but check back for the next installment. I’m sure we’ll have silly things happen from time to time.

On this blog, I plan to chronicle our adventures as I teach my kids to cook.

They are helping in the kitchen and excited about learning but if you’ve ever cooked with kids,
you know what a challenge it can be.

Get ready for laughs, spills and lots of love!

GOD BLESS YOU!
