"Easy" Bakin'

For a brief moment yesterday I lost my mind.

I actually suggested that we use the Easy Bake Oven.

Any mom will agree that the EB Oven was obviously invented by someone without children.

Remember when they used to look like this:

They've come along way in color and design, but they still cook ridiculously small foods with a light-bulb. Really, what small child wouldn't want to wait patiently for a cookie the size of a quarter...

Despite it taking us about an hour to make 6 "cookies", 3 pretzels and play 500 rounds of "is it done YET?!?!?" We had a lot of fun!

Lo decided to make pretzels with nacho cheese dip and NoJo wanted cookies.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE cooking with my girls. It great for teaching them so many things. They learn to follow directions, measurements and when using the EB oven, the art of waiting patiently for your food! The nice thing about the EB Oven is that everything is made for little ones and they can do most, if not all, of the work themselves.

We had a few issues with the cookies. They were really sticky and hard to form.

No worries! NoJo was able to solve her own problem.

The pretzels were much easier and Lo was proud of how they came out.

Nothing tastes better than food you have made all by yourself!
