Cooking with Micah and Asher

I taught another cooking class. This time I was with Noah’s younger brothers, Micha and Asher. Another Cooking Class. This was the first time I was teaching and working with the boys. They both had so much fun. Big Brother Noah had to come in and check out all the goodies they made, and of course, he was more than willing to sample them too.

My two new junior chefs in the making, Micah and Asher.

The first thing we made were some mini pizzas. We did some simple easy-peasy, after school snacks this time. We made the pizzas with English muffins, marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.

Once the boys loaded their pizzas up the way they liked them, into the oven they went, for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese was thoroughly melted and everything was hot.

They look pretty proud of their pizza creations.

As the pizzas were cooking, we made some “spiders on a string” and some “ants on a log”.

The spiders on a string were simply black olives and thinly sliced strips of string cheese. You can use any kind of olives, as long as they are pitted and have large enough holes to slide the cheese through.

Typically, “ants on a log” are made with celery, peanut butter and raisins, but we used cream cheese instead of peanut butter this time. We had some regular cream cheese and some strawberry cream cheese and two kinds of raisins.

Micha and Asher both did a great job and had a lot of fun in the process. And of course, they were sampling throughout the production phase, as they should. πŸ™‚ Here are their final masterpieces. These are also fun things to do for a Halloween party too.

Who knows what we’ll make next time? You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out. πŸ™‚

Once I was done with Micah and Asher, I went downstairs to cook with Noah. This time he made spaghetti and homemade meatballs. Yet another big success. We had a little incident however. We blew a fuse because we were using the hot plate, the microwave and the George Forman grill all at once. Fortunately, most everything was already made once that happened. OOPS!

***When I am working with kids, I ALWAYS ask for the parents’ permission if it is OK for me to share their photos. If they say no, NO pictures will be shared.***
