Cooking with Kids 101

So, yea, I ditched the recipe blog. I made one and even posted once but I decided to just put recipes on this blog for now. It's just too much trouble to have two different blogs at once when you have a husband, three kids, six dogs and six fish. ha!

With Griffin being as sick as he was, we weren't about to go anywhere this past weekend. Not even outside. There's only so much I can take of the Wii and all the "it's my turn to be first player!!" screaming that goes with it. At lunchtime on Saturday I decided to let the boys make themselves a mini pizza(and Reece too!). I just gave them an english muffin, some pizza sauce, cheese, black olives(yummo!), some pepperoni and let them have at it! Of course I took over when it came to the baking part.

They turned out really yummy!
And then we made a cookie pizza! Pilsbury sent me an email with the recipe and here it is!

One roll 16oz chocolate chip cookie dough
One cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup salted peanuts(I didn't use these!)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup carmel topping

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 12 inch pizza pan. Mash out the cookie dough evenly onto the pizza pan. Bake 12-17 minutes or until light brown. Then you just sprinkle the marshmallows, peanuts, and chocolate chips. Drizzle the carmel on top. Can I just say that I didn't measure any of that??? I just let the boys put whatever and I LOVE carmel so I put alot! I didn't use the peanuts because of Reece but I am sure they would have been tasty!

Be sure you listen to the boss!

Can I please explain to you how NASTY black olives are? Seriously? You let your kids eat that yuckko stuff? However, the cookie pizza looks quite yummy!
