A few summers ago I held a Kids Cooking Camp at my home and it was so much fun. So throughout the summer I will share with you some fun recipes and tips for cooking with your kids because Kids Can Cook! Our first recipe is for Bread in a Bag. I enlisted three of the cutest little girls who just happen to be sisters from church to come and play with me in the kitchen. Tip One: Make sure the recipe is readable and accessible. and then wrote the ingredients on the paper so the girls could easily see it. Making bread was a great way to teach the girls the right way to measure flour – I prefer the scoop and level method. The first step was to put a cup of flour into their bag They then added the sugar, yeast and water. Then they zipped up their bags and smooshed it all together until the flour was all mixed it.

Irish Soda Bread - Fine, you win. Amemait has a tumblr now. Painted Rocks, Everyone is different, Make a Path The rock-painting craze is in full swing among communities all over Northwest Indiana. “I think it’s a wonderful movement and it’s contagious — we have painted 120 rocks, just ourselves. If we are diligent and if we all work to make this a good thing, our kids will remember this,” said Elizabeth Eenigenburg, who started the Facebook page Crown Point Rocks. Every community Facebook rock page has a different philosophy — Happy Rock Project, The Kindness Rock Project, etc. — but the main idea is the same: A person paints a rock, hides it in her community, hopes that it is found and inspires the finder to re-hide the rock and/or paint a rock to continue the cycle.

Jenny Vander Meer, of Lowell, agrees it is for all ages.

That’s why recently I decided to try making almond meal/flour pancakes. This recipes only makes five pretty large pancakes, but that was enough for us. As you can see, the pancakes were pretty thick, and we found out they are also very filling. The picture doesn’t show it, but we did put syrup on them. If you mix this together in a four cup glass measuring cup, you can then easily pour the batter onto the skillet.

issues final rule on safety and effectiveness of antibacterial soaps Español The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today issued a final rule establishing that over-the-counter (OTC) consumer antiseptic wash products containing certain active ingredients can no longer be marketed. This final rule applies to consumer antiseptic wash products containing one or more of 19 specific active ingredients, including the most commonly used ingredients – triclosan and triclocarban. “Consumers may think antibacterial washes are more effective at preventing the spread of germs, but we have no scientific evidence that they are any better than plain soap and water,” said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). The agency issued a proposed rule in 2013 after some data suggested that long-term exposure to certain active ingredients used in antibacterial products — for example, triclosan (liquid soaps) and triclocarban (bar soaps) — could pose health risks, such as bacterial resistance or hormonal effects.
