Kids in the Kitchen

We often do a big bake at our house at least once a fortnight so I have home baked treats for the kids lunchboxes, midnight snacks for dad and sweet indulgences for me and the little ones. 
Oh what fun, Annabel learned how to crack an egg, 
Elli taught teddy how to cook 
and Miss Madeline  discovered  how much fun it was to lick the bowl...
Today we made:
Walnut and date slice - for dad
