Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen where I hope to inspire you to get your kids in the kitchen cooking with you. Each week we have lots of fun and have made lots of food. We have also been inspired by others who link up. This is a real easy linky, just write a blog post about something your kids have cooked and link it up at the bottom of the page. You have until next Monday to join in. If you have an old post then that’s fine too. Come and join us, it’s fun!
First I like to thank those that joined last weeks linky. First up we have the wonderful Beesley Buzz and this week it’s a lovely recipe from J as he shows us how to make some fabulous Sultana Scones. J also had a very good taster day at his new school which you can read about.
Then we have the The Brick Castle showing us how to make baked doughnuts in just 30 minutes. mmmmm doughnuts!
Thank you for joining in, I can’t wait to see what everyone else has been cooking.
This week, we had a teatime dilemma. I was going to make pizza but we were out and got back a bit late to make the dough. (Note to self – make sure you have some ready made bases in the freezer for occasions like this.) So I thought we could make puff pastry pizza which is one of the favourites of the adults in the household. However, the littlies are not so keen on the ingredients I put on it so I asked Boo what she thought we should put on it. She said just cheese and tomato. Their favourite pizza is margherita. I thought that it would make a rather soggy looking puff pasty pizza so suggested making tarts instead. Of course this would mean cutting the pastry into circles and Boo was really up for that. So this is the recipe we came up with together. Only, Boo decided that she wanted to put the smaller rings she’d cut out on the top, making pies rather than tarts.

I think they worked better cooking the pie tops separately. The kids really loved them anyway.
