Hello all!
I am going to put together a childrens recipe book/folder for my nieces and nephew (ages 4,6, and Cool and was wondering if any of you would like to share some recipes that aren't to hard for children. So far, all I have are chocolate chip cookies, apple pie and a few others. It would be nice to get some that are successful with kids. Thanks.

When I was little I remember having a children's cookbook. But, the only things I remember being in it were snickerdoodles and meatloaf frosted with mashed potatoes. Smiley

By the way, that's an awesome idea.

I'll see what else I can think of!  Smiley

mini-meatloafs!  but delicious meatloafs, not the icky ones.  i personally think my mom's hamburgerchunk is amazing, but it's what i've grown up on.
ice cream would be a good one, and chocolate buttons are really easy, too.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

You can also make ordinary things more fun for kids like with the mashed potatoes let them shape it into volcanoes and then have the "volcanoes" overflow with gravy "lava". 
Salads can be made fun for kids too by using hardboiled eggs or egg slices as faces and making little people or creatures with it on top of the main lettuce base( shredded cheese hair, raisin eyes, carrot + celery stick bodies etc.)

Ants on a log are a fun kid's snack- fill celery sticks with peanut butter for the "log" and place raisins on top as the "ants".

Pizza bagels or Pizza englishmuffins are always fun too.  They can spread the sauce themselves and decorate them with toppings (again making all sorts of faces etc. with things like peppers and such) and then just stick in the microwave or oven for a couple of minutes and voila! you're done. 

I used to be the director of an afterschool program so I've done a lot of kid's cooking projects.  Any simple recipe will work.  If you can add food coloring to your project or make faces out of it all the better!

cinnamon snails are a cute and fun treat to make- i remember making them in cooking class in the 6th grade...

you spread cream cheese on white bread and then roll it up,
cut the rolled log into 3rds or 4ths and then dip it in melted butter,
and then into a cinnamon and sugar mix. Bake them at 350 for 5-10 minutes;
basically until they're golden brown

zomg!  my mom did that mashed potato volcano thing for us EVERY time!!  she would pool gravy in the top and then put it under the broiler so the rim was all crisp and then we got to poke it so it would erupt.  ahh.  memories.
