Hi everyone! Dwenlynn here again! If your kids are anything like me, they may not want to eat their vegetables all the time. Try this sweet approach to making carrots yummy! This is a quick and easy way to make plain ol’ carrots turn into something new and exciting!

The ingredients (makes about 4 servings):

  • 1 pound carrots
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water

First you will nedd to peel the carrots and slice them into small rounds. Next, steam the carrots until they are soft, but not mushy. Set these aside for now.

Using a frying pan, melt the butter, stir in the brown sugar and water. Let these ingredients cook together for about 1 minute. Or as my Papa might say “let them get to know eachother!”

Add the sliced carrots to the pan and toss them in the brown sugar mixture until they are completly covered with it. Let them finish cooking on low heat for about 3-4 minutes.

 

 

And that is it! I could eat these carrots all day! Happy cooking!

Hi! My name is Dwenlynn, I’m six years old and I will be your new chef for Kid’s in the Kitchen! My mom Landi will be helping me out as I show you how to make some of my favorite foods!

What we’re making today is a really easy breakfast cake. But, instead of baking it in the oven, we will be baking it with steam! Here is what you will need:

  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 1/2  cups of milk
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of Bisquick

Break the egg into a medium sized mixing bowl

 

Then, add the milk, sugar, Bisquick and…

Whisk it all together until it’s well blended (or not bumpy)!

Next, pour the mixture into the pie pan. I like to scoop mine with a measuring cup, but I still needed a little help!

 

 

  

 Next, put 3 custard cups, upside down, in a large pan. Fill the pan with water.

Slowly and carefully! Lower the pie pan into the larger one so that it rests comfortably on the upside down cups.

Cover the pan with a lid and bring water to a boil. Once it is boiling, reduce heat to medium and and let it cook for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean! 

After it is done cooking you may top with whatever you like! I love chocolate chips!

Isn’t that cool?! I never knew that you could make a cake with water!! Enjoy!!
