I remember the results from the easy bake oven being pretty darn good too when I was a kid! However, my oldest (5 years old) will be getting a cookbook for Christmas. Specifically, this one. My mom is making matching aprons for me and my 3 girls for Christmas too :) I've also seen child-sized kitchen utensil sets too like wooden spoons, whisk, spatula, etc. There's a lot our there for kids these days in the kitchen/culinary department. Definitely a good thing!

I loved my Easy Bake to! It was the blue one. My mom hardly ever baked. She didn't even like to cook. To this day I have yet to advance beyond that EBO in baking. Ok I got kicked out of Home Ec class. Refused to sew an apron. LOL! Who gets kicked out of a class like that? ME!

munky, i almost got kicked out. were told to make the apron with the ruffles. even as a sophomore i know that was not something i would ever wear to cook in. made a lot of noise, did i, but stopped short of rebellion.

my 7 year old got one.. uuuugh! (and YUCK!) the sponge bob cake and the "brownies" and the frosting.. its all just tasteless. Ok,.. its not. it tastes like thick, wet cardboard. But she made it herself and thinks its all delicious. And we act like it is when she makes us try it too! I have now sent it over to grandma's house for when she goes over there,.... to share the joy! LOL. (grandma really appreciated it! - just a little payback for buying my daugher a mini guitar, marraccas, a drum thingy, a recorder... )

I didn't get kicked out, but I "helped" the teacher by showing her easier ways to do things. They weren't in the teaching plan, even if they made more sense. And I absolutely would not cook with margarine, I brought my own butter when she wouldn't/couldn't get it for me. My Hollandaise tasted better!

Best thing is, my sister can't pay me back in kind. Of course, she could always send the boys to me for the summer...but I bet I can tolerate it better than she can.
