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

Welcome to week 4 of my feature on kids cooking classes.
School is now officially out here, so the grandchildren and I are going to try to get together more regularly for kids cooking classes. I told them they could include their friends, so our classes may grow this summer. Continue reading KIDS COOKING CLASSES, WEEK 4 →

Last week I had the honor of teaching a “Healthy Snack Making” Workshop at the WV State PTA Convention. The convention was held at Lakeview Golf Resort on Cheat Lake in Morgantown, WV.
The youth that were attending had their own schedule of workshops and activities. A few months ago, the president of the state PTA had invited me to do this workshop. I am someone who is always baking cookies and sweet treats, so this was a new challenge for me that I wanted to take on. I wanted to share with you the highlights of my healthy snack making workshop and the ideas that I came up with. Continue reading HEALTHY SNACK MAKING WORKSHOP FOR PTA … →
Sharing memories of the Pillsbury Bake-off Contest 2014
This time last year, my husband and I were in Nashville Tn for the 47th Pillsbury Bake-off Contest. I had been chosen as a finalist with my entry: Strawberry-Mascarpone-Hazelnut-Choc. -Tart. So many wonderful memories. I am so honored to have been chosen. To see my blog post on this trip, see HERE.
My 11 year old granddaughter called me one day and said that she was required to do a “How To” demonstration speech in one of her classes. She asked to do my Pillsbury entry! She came to my house one evening and made the tart and I took pictures. This was an easy recipe to do and I am so proud of the great job she did.

I have always loved to be in the kitchen creating recipes and cooking with the grandchildren.
They know how I love to cook, bake, and enter cooking contests and I think that excitement has been passed on to them. They have been the inspiration for many of my contest recipes.
When they are small, we move a stool over to the kitchen counter or bring their small table into the kitchen. As they grow older, they have taken over the kitchen at times. They will even call me to tell me an idea they had for a recipe. See how much fun we have baking and cooking together!
