    This is an awesome site and recipe. I am one of 2 working parents and more importantly a Dad without any cooking skills. Not too mention not as experienced as Mommy with regards to keeping my children entertained and the house from burning down when Mommy is away. I try as I know my wife needs a break from time to time, but I think I often create a worse situation for her when she comes home. Or at least that was case before I found your website. This website has been my saving grace. Now whenever I have the kids ALONE I setup the laptop in the kitchen, outfit my children with their aprons we click on your site and start cooking, which keeps the kids entertained and minimizes the destruction to one area of the house.This recipe has worked out especially well because not only is it nutritious and tasty, but it allows the kids to really dig in and have some fun.

  5. So glad I found this site – every day we wonder “what’s for dinner” after working long hours. My kids love the idea of cookies for breakfast and we are pulling this together tomorrow.

  6. Liv & I are making these today…
