It’s a wonderful but scary day today! That’s right, I’m talking about #NationalKidsTakeOverTheKitchenDay. That was a mouthful… Today, your kids will be walking into your kitchen and creating something delicious (hopefully)! But I know what you’re thinking. You’re saying to yourself, “I like my home. I don’t want it burned to the ground.” Yes, yes. We all love our homes, and that’s the last thing we want. So, to prevent that from happening, we’ve compiled a list of recipes that are easy for kids, yet still delicious!
