Baking with kids
Number one priority to help keep the chaos under control? Keep little tummies full! Usually, meal time is a race against the clock to get meal prep, cooking and kitchen clean up done in time to feed my hungry brood. During March Break, time is on my hands. I like to use the opportunity to teach the kids how to help me make family favourites. Bonus? The kids often enjoy the food even more for having helped create it. Cookie and muffin mixes win points for being kid-approved and easy to make!
