I'm still working on finding my groove in the YouTube world, but the kids and I are having fun getting started and would love to have your family in the “kitchen” with us.

How to Make This Recipe
Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions. My 9-year old made the entire recipe all by herself, including separating an egg. She'll show you how!
And don't worry if separating an egg is too tricky for your little bakers. Just replace the egg yolk with a whole egg. Easy peasy!
Printable Kids Recipe Card
I made this recipe card specifically with kids in mind! It's meant to be printed out on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper and hole-punched to fit inside a three-ring binder. I hope your kids are as excited about being in the kitchen as mine are and enjoy finding new recipes to print and put in their cookbook binders!
