We have a little series with the kids called “Brooklyn and Bennett’s Baking Show“. Our kids love being in the kitchen, and they just have a blast making videos. We have this little series on Youtube for other kiddos to follow along with, learn how to bake and cook, and just have fun and laugh (because they are extra silly in the kitchen!).
We will have a free downloadable recipe for each video.
You want these cookies very crisp. They will last longer sitting in milk if you overcook them a bit. So bake for 15 minutes, but if you let them go a bit more, it wouldn’t hurt.
- It creates interest in food and cooking. Children who are involved in the creation of their meals are more likely to eat their meals.
- Cooking helps to build important math skills. Almost every recipe requires accurate measuring and counting.
- Improves comprehension and reading skills. Reading a recipe, understanding step-by-step instructions, and comprehending exactly what whisking, blending, or folding means, are not only an important part of the finished product but it also promotes literacy and listening.
- Builds confidence and self-esteem. Giving children the opportunity to be involved in the completion of a meal helps to provide them with a sense of accomplishment. If they successfully boiled and mashed potatoes, created a personal pizza, or helped make a special dessert, let them know what they did was important and that it helped. Child development and the feeling of success go hand in hand.
- You’re able to spend quality time together as a family. With school, work, and extracurricular activities, it’s difficult finding time where the whole family can be in the same room at one time.

Anyone else used to hate biscotti? Or maybe you currently hate biscotti. Maybe you haven’t had the right biscotti yet. I used to think they were disgusting, dry cookies. I was wrong people! So wrong! They are so good! And when you pair them with coffee, they’re even better. I think I just always happened to try a biscotti from somewhere that didn’t make them well. That plastic container at Target with the little dry biscotti made six months ago and frozen and thawed out to sell in the “bakery” section, not good biscotti! Come on, can we really call it a “bakery” section? I don’t think so…
I have dabbled with different versions of a pumpkin spice sauce over the years. Some tasted okay, but crystallized easily. Some did not have enough of that “spice” flavor. This one is the best I’ve ever made. It is creamy, spicy and holds well in the fridge. There is one problem though – it doesn’t last long! I made about 12 ounces and it lasted about three days because it is just so good, we were drinking more coffee just to use the yummy pumpkin sauce.
We made this crisp with some leftover berries we had in the freezer. You know, that big Costco bag of frozen berries, it’s PERFECT for this recipe. Fresh berries are often more expensive anyway, so that’s why we decided to develop this recipe for you. We don’t need groceries costing more than they already do…anyway…
