    I've been making this with my youngest for years. She's 13 now, but she's been helping me make it since she was about 3!

    I recently saw this on Good Morning America. The recipe is in a new cookbook by Rachel Ray entitled "Cooking Rocks: 30 Minute Meals for Kids".

    It was already posted on Zaar and is called Candy Sushi

    My kids' favourite recipe is Ev's Lentil Soup (Greek - Fakess), but I know for a fact that MOST Greek kids love this tasty and nutritious soup. Do try it if you have a fussy eater - I'm not guaranteeing anything, this is just based on my own experience.

    Mirj , have you ever seen the 'description' to this recipe?

    My 3 year old loves making smoothies with me. There are endless possibilities, plus it gets some extra fruits and veggies in them!

    This is a cookbook I have created for things to do with my kids (3 & 5). Mostly art supplies that we can make from things around the house, but a few are recipes.

    I have found that my kids just love being in the kitchen with me. They like helping in any capacity.

    We make a lot of muffins together. Some favorites include:
    Hubby's Low Fat Yummy Dried Berry Muffins #99425
    Molasses Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins #72830
    Cha-ching! Carrot Spice Muffins #98447
    Healthy Apple Bran Muffins #83884
    Coconut Peach Muffins #57076
    Golden Harvest Muffins #89562
    Banana-Oatbran Muffins #55110

    And this is a template for how to make muffins with whatever you have on hand
    "Any" Muffins #242

    Cookies are, of course, a hit. Here are some my kids and I like to make together (especially because they are moderately healthy!)
    The Everything Cookie #76567
    Martian Cookies (Zucchini & lots of other stuff!) #78009
    Oataroons #97116
    The Monkey Made Me Make 'em! (banana Ch.chip Cookies) #89977

    And here are some random fun recipes I have found to make with/for them
    Aggression Cookies #101652
    Marvellous Marshmallows #81235
    Apple Lips #89599

    Can you tell my kids and I cook A LOT?? icon_smile.gif

    Hope that helps. I also have plenty of ideas for many other things but those are the basics. Let me know if you need more!

    And that picture is adorable!

    Off to go to my aerobics class. My 3 year old begs for me to go because she loves her class so much! I'm looking forward to seeing what else people come up with in this thread as it is so near and dear to my heart! icon_smile.gif

    I just looked through your recipes quickly...we do have similar tastes and I bookmarked a bunch of yours. icon_wink.gif

    (Actually, I read your page and we have a lot in common...education/former jobs, current activities, even our recent moves ~ we came to Waco after three years in Boston icon_wink.gif )

    I feel that it's important to let my kids know that I have confidence in them. With close supervision, I let my 3 year old DD use a butter knife to help me cut things, roll out dough, add things to the mixer, etc. I treat her like an adult who is learning new skills and she is steadily gaining a ton of confidence. She also learns that part of cooking is.... cleaning! We start with a clean kitchen and end with a clean kitchen. icon_biggrin.gif But, it's all part of the fun. If mommy does it and has a good time, maybe it is a good time! She likes eating the stuff she cooks, as well.
