I’ve never made this recipe and if you follow me on instagram you probably already know. My 10 year old is the one that made this and it’s fantastic! I may like my job as a “taste tester” better than a cook. I’m sharing this recipe from a kids cookbook that Kloie got from Santa, “Cooking Class” you can find it here. 100% worth the $13.99 price tag, each recipe she has tried has been edible, easy and the clean up isn’t bad. It contains cute little easy to maneuver recipe cards in the back with “what you do” and “what you need” for your own personalized recipes. Additionally four pages of cute little stickers for gifting your creation or labeling it in the fridge.
That Easy Bake Oven
As much as I love the idea of kids having an easy bake oven, trust me we have one. I cringe every time she asks to get that thing out. It’s a mess, the pre-made packets are overpriced, do you have an edible outcome? Maybe, maybe not. It’s a toss up. If we’re going to go through making the mess I’d rather have a full portioned shareable dish. For the sake of the kids and how much they adore that easy bake oven, of course we get it out from time to time. Will we have the packets to make something, haha questionable. Just another reason I personally am not a huge fan.
How could I forget though, as a kid I myself had an easy bake oven and loved that thing. I rarely got to use it, I wonder why? Being the youngest of three girls I had an earlier bed time and I remember hearing the giggles after I went to bed one night. I later realized my easy bake oven was gone. That night the giggles ensued my two older sisters had tried to bake marshmallows in my easy bake oven. I’m sure you know exactly how that turned out. My easy bake oven was no more. RIP Easy Bake Oven.
If you want something that is worth the recipes this little recipe book in my opinion is perfect for kiddos.
Just being completely honest, I had no idea it was this easy to make an apple crisp. Anyone else? Before this I had never made one and… still haven’t.
