All about Emma (what else is new?)—what we make together, what she makes herself now that she’s a big girl (and good cook), what she likes to eat, and more. This section is not about what to make FOR your kids, but what to make WITH your kids. Emma has always loved to help in the kitchen (except for clean-up), and she’s turned into a terrific co-chef. We’d love to hear about what you make with your kids!

  1. Just love the website! I can’t stop clicking and reading all the recipes (or, more accurately, the stories accompanying each recipe).

    I will definitely try the meatloaf, Mexican Chicken Lime Soup and 5 minute chocolate cake (my kind of time frame)!

    I will be checking in regularly. Thanks so much for sharing!


  2. Hello!
    I to enjoy “Tiny Treats: Fun Foods to Make And Eat (American Girls Collection Sidelines) (Spiral-bound)” Book. it is very enjoyable[:
    i see your tiny happy face down there….it is so CUTEE(:

  3. While sorting through my piles of copied recipes today to get ready for a dinner party next week I came across “Ziploc Omelets” and thought Emma might enjoy doing them. Have you heard of this recipe?
    Have guests write their name on a quart size ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.
    Crack 2 eggs into the bag (not more) and shake to combine them.
    Put out a variety of ingredients – ie. cheese, ham, onioni, pepper, mushrooms, tomato, etc
    Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to her bag and shakes it.
    Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it
    Place bags into boiling water for exactly 13 minutes – you can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot.
    Open the bags carefully and the omelet will roll out easily.
    Nice to serve with fresh fruit.

  4. What a fantastic idea! Next time Emma has a bunch of kids for a sleepover, we’ll do this for breakfast. Thank you!

  5. Here’s another fun one for Emma……I hope.
    Poor Man’s Turtles
    30 mini pretzel twists
    30 Rolo candies
    30 pecan halves

    Preheat oven to 325.
    Spray cookie sheet with Pam; Place pretzels in single layer on cookie sheet
    Place one Tolo candy on each pretzel
    Place in oven and bake 4 minutes
    Immediately place one pecan half on each pretzel candy – press gently to spread candy and embed pecan
    Chill until cool
    ps. there are 8 Rolos to a roll if you don’t want to buy a bag of Rolos.

  6. I can’t buy a bag of Rolos because I’d eat them all! This looks like such fun, can’t wait to give it a try. Thank you!!!

  7. I want to purchase the mini ice cream cones. Can you tell me where to find them?

    • They are bugles…not ice cream cones!

  8. Omg your tiny treats are genious !!!!!!! My mom and dad think I’m crazy because I love little things and tiny treats are just genious !!!!
