These camo cupcakes were a big hit at my grandson’s 4 year old birthday party. camo cupcakes. kids cooking class

Last week my 2 little grandsons from NC came to stay with me for 4 days.  One of them has an August 1st birthday.  He had his birthday party with friends and NC family before they came to visit. We wanted to have a little party with his WV family while he was here.  He requested a camo birthday party because he loves camo!  It was also birthday week for his Uncle David.  I was having a kids cooking class with them the day before the party, so I decided we would make foods to take to the party.  His 6 year old brother wanted to make camo cupcakes and they turned out so cute.

This recipe,  Strawberry Cream Dessert won first place in its division in the 1983 WV Strawberry Festival.  That was good enough for me! Continue reading STRAWBERRY CREAM DESSERT-KIDS COOKING CLASS

The past few classes we have been working on breakfast recipes.  We have done simple things like cooking bacon and eggs to making souffles, wraps, quiche, omelets, a crostada, and French toast.  I wanted to teach them the art of making homemade cinnamon rolls, even if only this one time in their life.  I know that most people don’t take time to do this anymore but I want them to remember doing this with me.   Continue reading HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS & KIDS COOKING CLASS


My cooking classes with the grandchildren focused on breakfast specialties for several classes and we wanted to share some of them.

breakfast specialties, kids cooking classesBreakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but  several of my grandchildren told me they do not like to eat breakfast.  They prefer to eat a pop-tart, breakfast bar, or have a parfait.  I wanted to show them a variety of foods they could make and would probably like to eat.  We came up with some old and new breakfast specialties.
