Do you remember the easy Bake Oven?

Alright~ How old are you? Do you remember the Easy Bake oven? I bet you had one and cooed with a light bulb just like millions of other little girls and some boys! Sara got one last year for Christmas and we haven't used it as much as we should. But... I must say the one I had 35 years ago is not much different from the one we used today. Mine was turquoise and had knobs that did nothing and a light bulb that cooked the food. Today it is Pretty in Pink but it still uses the same bulb. Sara and I cooked a surprise for the boys tonight. Jay has really really worked very hard this week and it has been a rough week for him so....Sara and I are trying to cheer them up with a brownie! Chocolate works for me! Especially Dark Chocolate! I hope it works for him. If it doesn't...just knowing that his little girl made it will do the trick! Have a Great Day!

Oh wow I was a deprived child!!! I NEVER had one of those, what a great idea.

I love cooking with the children, especially now they are older as it is less messy!!!

Hope your hols are going well :) Did the brownies go down well? They don't last long in the tin here!

I amso sorry you didn't have one of these cool things. It is cheaper to not use it but it is easy and fun! The time off has been wonderful! The brownies? Well..they were not wasted.
