Kids cooking with Paula Deen

My girls have this cookbook
and decided to make this. All by themselves!
Easy to follow, step by step instructions.
My only complaint is there was not an actual picture of what the rolls should look like.
But, this was Number One's finished product, before baking. 

Me, being the Super Mom that I am, forgot to get an "after" shot. 
I did, however, manage to eat a few!

And just in case you want to let your kids make these.....

Cinnamon Rolls

from Paula Deen's My First Cookbook
  • One tube of crescent rolls (we used reduced fat)
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • cinnamon sugar mixture

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Separate the crescent rolls into 8 triangles.
Place a marshmallow in the middle of each one.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the marshmallow and inside each crescent roll.
Bring the sides of the crescent roll up around the marshmallow, making sure it's completely covered, pinching the sides together.
Place on parchment paper or mat (or spray cookie sheet with non stick spray)
Bake the rolls for abt 10 mins, until lightly browned and puffed up.

Some of our marshmallow oozed out, so they are kinda sticky and messy.  The kids loved them.
They love a crescent roll :P

Cooking is great for kids.  It gives them a sense of accomplishment, they have to measure, follow directions, etc. So, get your kiddies in the kitchen! Of course, it would be nice if mine would learn to clean up after they cook!

Do you have any super easy recipes for the kids? 
My kids have this Paula Deen's my first cookbook, and a Sandra Lee's Children's Cookbook. They are both pretty good.

***I'm also looking for some low carb recipes (for the hubs). If anyone has any good ones to share, I'd love to have them (you could even do a guest post if interested!)- or if you know of a good site, holla at me!


  1. Kamden has a great cookbook from Williams-Sonoma for kids. He loves it! You can get it at Barnes & Noble. :)

  2. I am a follower! I hope you will stop by my blog and follow back!
