Tangy Cider Fizz

I'm not familiar with Carpano Antica vermouth - do you think this would work well with any sweet vermouth or is the Carpano Antica flavor pretty essential?

Blushing Betty Cocktail

Tried this out with some friends tonight. Turned out great!

In search of: Popcorn Popper

Out of curiosity, why don't you guys want an air popper? We had one at home when I was a kid and it always worked pretty well.

Kids Cooking Class Ideas

Thanks again for all the inspiration everyone! Last week we did Dutch Babies (or German Pancakes as I grew up calling them). It went really well! The kids (and moms) were amazed at how they puffed up in the oven.

This week we're going do homemade biscuits, and while they're in the oven we'll be making homemade butter by shaking cream in a jar. It should be a good time!

Wow! You guys are amazing! Thanks for all the great ideas, I'm sure a lot of these will work great.

Kids Cooking Class Ideas

Loving these ideas everyone!

PoorOldMama - I can't believe I didn't think of doing dutch babies! I have thought of doing soup, but we only have an hour for the class. Do you think we'd be able to get a soup ready to eat in that time?

AnnieNT - Making peanut butter sounds awesome! I think the kids would really love that. Do you remember how you guys did it in kindergarten? I'd like to have it as hands-on for the kids as possible.

Fudge. Definitely fudge.

XLB technique in burgers?

Not sure if this is exactly what you had in mind, but your post reminded me of a burger Kenji made a while back:

Definitely sausage!

Four Pacific Northwest Cheeses Fit for a King (or Queen)

Am I missing something? Only 2/4 of those are Oregon cheeses. Cascadia Creamery is in Washington and Central Coast Creamery is in California.

Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork With Dr Pepper

@plazmaorb - At the end of the article he mentions cooking in a dutch oven at 225 for the same time as the slow cooker.

Cereal Eats: I Need To Talk About Froot Loops

I LOVE Fruit Loops. Growing up we never had sugary cereal in the house, so going to my grandparents' was always a treat. They'd have their pantry stocked with those variety packs of mini cereal boxes. My favorites were always Fruit Loops and Honey Smacks.

Skillet Suppers: Pesto Pasta with Shrimp and Pine Nuts

It's there! Thanks, Kenji!

Skillet Suppers: Pesto Pasta with Shrimp and Pine Nuts

Yeah, I don't see it either.

Carrot Cake Scones With Cream Cheese Icing

Made these over the weekend, and they turned out very nicely. Swapped the raisins for dried cranberries, and added some orange juice and zest to the glaze. Don't have a springform pan but a sheet pan worked just fine for me.

Kids Cooking Class Ideas

Hey all,
I work at a recovery program for women and children, and am currently in charge of leading a cooking class for our resident children and their mothers.
We've split the group into two classes - one of mostly 4 year olds, and the other ranging from 6-10. The biggest difficulty I've come across so far is that we only have 1 hour for each class, so anything that needs to cook or bake for a long time is problematic.
Recipes I have done so far: Pizza, pumpkin cranberry cookies, and salad rolls with peanut sauce.
Does anyone have any genius ideas of recipes that would work well in a class like this?
