My son started mincing the chives into small pieces. This is a skill that he learned from one of the previous boxes.
He also combined the dried ingredients on a separate bowl.
It’s now time to mix it with the wet ingredients to make the batter.
My son also cut the bacon into smaller pieces.
He added the bacon last after putting corn, chives, and cheddar to the batter.
After baking for 15 minutes, the muffins are now ready to eat!
They smell good too! The taste is even better, and the whole family enjoyed them all!
Here’s a closer look of the muffins. I split it in half to show how beautiful it looks with all the mix-ins inside!

In this recipe, kids will be able to learn and practice techniques for safely using the oven.
As always, the booklet provided the recipe’s ingredients and needed tools. There’s also a potato facts game and a poem making activity for the kids.
Ingredients for this recipe include 4 medium russet potatoes, 1 onion, 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, 1/2 tsp + 3/4 tsp kosher salt, 1lb ground beef, 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, 4 tsp chili powder, 8oz tomato sauce, and 15oz diced tomatoes.
The first thing to do is to bake the potatoes in the oven and then the kids can prepare the toppings while waiting.
My son started cooking the chili toppings! He heated the oil and added onion and salt, followed by the ground beef, cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder. He also added tomato sauce and diced tomatoes afterwards.
Cooking the meat required only minimal adult supervision and my son was able to do it really well!
The potatoes require 55-65 minutes of baking.
They turned out great, as they’re crisp on the outside and can be easily pierced with a fork!
Cutting the broccoli was also an easy task for my son. His kitchen skills has really improved since our first box!
Now, it’s time to add the toppings to the potatoes! To keep things organized, the toppings were placed in separate bowls.
After slicing the potatoes in half, you can choose whichever topping you want!
My son wanted the chili on one side and vegetables on the other half of the potato. Yum!
My son enjoyed making these! The potatoes were perfect and having the freedom to choose toppings makes it really fun.
Domino Shortbread Cookies. The last recipe is about making edible game pieces with shortbread cookies!
