Cooking With the 12-year Old

One thing I find important is spending time with the kids in my life. Years ago I decided that when the kids have their twelfth birthday, they will spend a week with me doing whatever they want (within reason). Mostly, it gives me time to just listen and talk with them about what is important to them. The most recent 12-year-old is the one I have been cooking with since she was a toddler. We really enjoyed our time in the kitchen so this week was no exception. Below are the recipes for all the “fun” items we made this week.

Peach Ginger Paleo Muffins
Coconut Milk Fudgesicles

Almond Flour Thumbprint Cookies

Lemon Blueberry Paleo Muffins
Paleo Blueberry Pie Crumb Bars
