Of course it all doesn't have to be about eating green. At Momtrends we like to have fun as much as the next guy, and that means sampling something sweet. Here are a few ideas for special treats in the kitchen:
Sassafras has a bunch of great items that make for perfect kitchen playdates. I recently tested the Sand Castle Ice Cream Kit. It's an almost complete kit (you need to supply the ice cream) that includes pirate flags, castle mold, sanding sugar and more. Basically you scoop ice cream in the mold, freeze it in shape and then decorate the castle into a big sugary masterpiece. It all comes packaged in a clear plastic bag with handles--perfect for a rainy day activity with a friend. $15.99 Sassafras' site is packed with other ideas for cooking up a good time.
Another fun way to pass an afternoon is to take on a baking project. Lego has a brick mold that allows you to bake a cake or make Jello in the shape of a brick. $14.99 need a quick recipe idea? Check out Betty Crocker. I like the looks of this Cheery Cherry Cake--I might try to whip this up for my daughter's birthday.
