Breakfast Scones: Kidz In The Kitchen

So this morning I was feeling just slightly domestic so I decided to attempt a little baking.

I am so not a Betty Crocker in the kitchen so making things from scratch isn`t really my style but you could if you wanted.
But this little project turned out pretty good. And is an easy recipe for little helpers.
Batch 1 were Savory Scones and Batch 2 were Sweet Scones.  I simply followed the directions on the box and then added my own ingredients.

You could add whatever you like I am sure.  (if I had some ham I would`ve added it to the savory scones).
Both of these turned out very well and were gobbled up by the mini crew. J

Nice and easy for the kids or maybe for when you have some company.


Savory Scones

2 cups of Bisquick

½ cup milk

About ½ to ¾ cup of shredded cheese

About ½ cup of chopped up fresh spinach leaves

About ¼ to ½ tsp each of caraway seeds and fennel seeds

Use your hands to knead it and mix it all together

Drop by the spoonful for the size you wish  (I made these ones a bit larger)

Bake about 8-10 min at 450F


Sweet Scones2 cups of Bisquick½ cup milkAbout ½ cup itty bitty chocolate chips (I get them from Bulk Barn)

About ¼ to ½ tsp each cinnamon and apple pie spice. (you could omit the apple pie spice – I just used it cause I had it)Use your hands to knead it and mix it all togetherDrop by the spoonful for the size you wish (I made these ones a bit smaller)Bake about 8-10 min at 450F
And I say “about” because I don’t really measure.  My mini Chef Dane just took a handful of this and a handful of that.And shook in the spices.


Turned out pretty good! J

BeautiControl – Angela Kinney:
12 Days

Who is BeautiControl?

BeautiControl is a beauty company that specializes in Spa treatments, Personalized skin care and
Advanced Anti-aging products (SPA) through a unique at-home spa experience with an unmatched income opportunity.

I first became a BeautiControl Independent Consultant because I loved the products and had been using them for almost 5 years.  I figured it was smarter for me to become a consultant and buy at wholesale cost than continually purchasing at retail price.  I never actually saw myself doing this as a business.  But now, after seeing the potential in it, I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I have flexibility and more time to spend with my family – I choose when I want to do my business.  What’s better than setting my own hours and sharing a product I truly believe in?

Leap Frog Word Whammer: Toy Talk

Ok….best (educational) toy in my opinion is the Leap Frog Word Whammer.  My oldest got it when he was 2 or 3 (seems so long ago I can barely remember).  He’s almost 9 now and it still works perfectly for my 4 and 2 year olds who are constantly playing with it.  There are various learning stages including – Letter Hunt, Word Builder and Word Hunt – where the kids can simply learn the letters and their sounds, find letters to make a word that is given to them or build their own word.  For your preschooler it’s fantastic as it says each letter as well as sounds out each letter phonetically so that your child can learn not only to  identify the letters but to also recognize the sounds that each letter makes – which is an integral step to reading.   For your littler ones (who just must do what their older siblings are doing) there is also a button that just plays the ABC’s.  Continue reading Leap Frog Word Whammer: Toy Talk
