The kids have been wanting to do more cooking on their own, and I found these cool silicone flexible muffin pans, just small enough to fit in our toaster oven. So they can bake tiny muffins all on their own. M. treated us to a batch of chocolate chip muffins. He saved out some batter for me, since I'm not a fan of chocolate chips in anything but cookies. I made mine with cranberries and walnuts. Yummmm!
I had originally bought the toaster oven instead of a regular toaster because I knew it would do double-duty as a miniature oven for the kids. Why get an "easy bake" oven when you can cook for real in the kitchen with one of these? Maybe we'll do mini-pizzas tonight.
