For the first of our Holiday shows we’re demonstrating our favorite bread pudding recipe ever. This one is from ‘The Joy of Cooking,’ and it’s called ‘New Orleans Bread Pudding with Southern Whiskey Sauce’…the sauce recipe is also in book.

Today we did not get home from school/work today until about 7:00pm. I know that is normal for lots and lots of families, and even for us it’s usually 6:00pm, but 7 is just later than I prefer. I have been able to arrange my day job so that I work fewer hours on my ‘kid’ weeks (I only have Alex and Soph with me every other week); and I work from home on Mondays and Fridays on those weeks–all this so I can squeeze as much time in with them as possible.…

Perogies are dumplings stuffed with various fillings. They are traditional in Poland, and since Alex and Soph are half Polish (on their dad’s side), we make them every year for the holidays. Alex & Soph’s recipe is a potato filled perogie that is boiled and served with sour cream. And, although there are a few steps, it’s fun teaching the kids about this traditional, family recipe. We have a great time making them together, plus they’re super tasty.… Continue

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I know this is the day before Thanksgiving, and food has not even yet been consumed, BUT, I’m already thinking about leftovers. Due to this fact, I’ve been reading through the food blogs I follow looking for recipes and in the process I’ve found some that I thought I’d pass along for this week’s ‘Recipe of the Week’. Three from Real Mom Kitchen and one from Recipe Shoebox…I haven’t tried any of them (yet!), but they look so good I had to pass… Continue

Some people probably think I’m crazy for even letting the kids in the kitchen while cooking the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Well if you’ve seen our show, you know that the 2 Kids family is a little crazy–and that’s just the way we like it :D
Alex and Soph usually help get things ready for the big meal by helping make the desserts the day before. On Thanksgiving though, I’m kind of focused on getting everything done, so they have more limited hands-on kitchen time, but… Continue

Thanksgiving is just over a week a way and Christmas is fast approaching. The traditions that are part of these holidays are making their arrivals as well. At our house there are two main categories of traditional activities—movies and food. Most of the movies are Christmas-y, like Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Polar Express, The Muppets ‘Christmas Carol’…the list goes on. When it comes to food, though, there are three main items: Perogies, Polish Sausages… Continue

On Saturday, November 7, Food Network had a cooking with kids day. I saw Paula Deen and the Barefoot Contessa. Paula was pretty good, Ina Garten, on the other hand was, let’s go with ‘interesting’. Now, I do like Ina Garten, she’s a great cook. I love when she has her parties and her recipes are delicious; BUT, arugula on pizza for kids? And, spicy olive oil…for kids?

I’m always looking for recipes that would be feasible for the kids and I to cook together. I find tons of great recipes, but some of those I like are a bit complicated. To make the recipes two kids cooking friendly, I end up adapting various recipes to come up with something easy to cook with kids. But as I’m browsing the web for inspiration, I add many sites to my Google Reader list, so, during this season of thanks, I’m going to share some of them and offer them a great big ‘Thank You’ for… Continue

Everybody knows that Thanksgiving dinner means turkey. Since I don’t have the kids on Thanksgiving day every year, and since I don’t want them to get all turkey-ed out, when we make our day after Thanksgiving meal, it usually includes turkey meatballs.

Welcome to our first Thanksgiving episode for 2009!
Because we like eating and hanging out together cooking, the Two Kids tribe truly enjoys Thanksgiving. It’s not just about the traditional delicious either, BUT, our Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie is one traditional treat we never forget. Honestly, it’s mostly the crust; the gingersnap crumbs add just the right spicy touch–two words: drool inducing.…

Yay! It’s Halloween! We are so excited to go trick-or-treating (and thankful it’s not snowing here in good ‘ole Minnesota). Soph’s gonna be Hannah Montana, and Alex as Darth Vadar–And, Mom’s gonna be a Zombie Hippie (we’ll make sure to post photos).
Anyway, our Halloween finale closes out this season with some cute and tasty Peanut Butter Spider Cookies.

Ahh, Thanksgiving, one of the tastiest times of the year. We all know there are tons of traditional foods associated with Thanksgiving, from the turkey to the green bean casserole, and most of us have a favorite. Pumpkin pie is both Alex and Sophia’s favorite and with the ginger snap crust and creamy filling, this is our best recipe ever!

It’s a contest! Alex, Soph and I love a good competition and thinking up creative new recipes, so this one is going to be fun for us.
The contest I’m talking about is The 8th Annual Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest. Another reason I’m excited about this contest is that, just like Two Kids Cooking, it encourages families to spend time together in the kitchen being creative and having fun cooking. Plus, kids ages 6 to 12 have the opportunity to win a $25,000… Continue

This week we share two ghoulish recipes and one out-of-this-word delight.
Our Brains on the Half-Skull recipe is not only scarily delicious, but it’s also super good for you. The halved grape tomatoes filled with cottage cheese make a great snack or boo-tiful halloween party hors d’oeuvres.
Our beverages are good for halloween parties too, with the frozen floating grapes adding that ‘there’s an eyeball in my drink’ affect. Just some soda… Continue

Every good meal needs a good beverage for which to wash it down. These two thirst-quenching, kid-friendly, drinks are the perfect addition to any Halloween meal. One is sweet and one is sour, both are just what any costume-clad child would want with their candy-filled pillowcase, trick-or-treating haul.
