Building Self Esteem

The kitchen is a GREAT classroom for children!  Every time you invite them to cook or bake with you; you are giving them the opportunity to work on reading, math and motor skills.

Did you know that kids are more likely to try new foods if they have the opportunity to help you make it? I once had a girl in one of my cooking classes that insisted she was "allergic to salad", this of course, was absolutely adorable to me, but after making the salad she decided she wasn't really "allergic" after all!

Are you in the Los Angeles area? Are you looking for something fun to do for your child's next birthday party? I am now hosting Kids Baking Parties in the luxury of your own home! I bring all of the ingredients and everything we need to have a fun time in the kitchen!

Kids LOVE to be in the Kitchen!

Here is a simple "go to" recipe that you can easily make with your kids.
It only requires 6 ingredients, 1 pot and about 15 minutes of your time.


They taste SO good!


1/2 cup of butter (or non-dairy Earth Balance)
1/2 cup of milk (or soy/almond milk)
1/2 cup of coco powder
2 cups of Sugar
1/2 cup of peanut butter (or almond butter)
3 cups of old fashioned oats


Put butter, milk, coco powder and sugar into a pot and on medium/low heat! Melt everything together stirring constantly and then let it come to a boil for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and oats. Then use a cookie scoop to spoon out your cookies onto parchment paper!  Let them cool and harden up and ENJOY!
Note: I like to put them in the refrigerator to cool in order to speed up the process, plus I like to eat them cold, but you can also leave them out at room temperature if you prefer.
