Cooking with Kids “Kids Cook French” Clafoutis with Claudine Pepin

Beginning around 6 months of age, I would pop up my grandson the J-Dude, right onto the pale lime green colored Bumba seat kept set on top of the wooden armed bar stool, then, push the back snugly up against the kitchen island, and together, we would cook.

Stacked High Apple Pie

I can’t say that this stacked high apple pie is the replica coinciding the verse ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’, but then it just might count, at least a smidgen, given the dense volume of thick sliced fruit contained within.
