Homemade Easy Bake Oven Mixes - Episode Three

Easy Bake Oven recipes are expensive to buy in the store, over $5 each. You can make your own mixes at home and save a lot of money. Plus you are still learning to cook even when you use your Easy Bake Oven.

This is a recipe I've baked before and it turns out great. It's really awesome how the red sugar crystals magically turn the cake pink! I guess if you're a boy, you could put blue, green or any other color crystals to turn your cake whatever color you'd like. I just may experiment with that myself!

I hope you have fun cooking this recipe! I'm sorry it's in three parts, Mama's memory stick ran out TWICE!

Peanut Butter Roll Ups - Episode One

Welcome to Cooking With Daria!

This morning, after I played a game of "Clue" with my parents (and I won!), we were hungry. I asked my Mama if I could make some Peanut Butter Roll Ups and she said yes! I learned to make Peanut Butter Roll Ups at Kids College earlier this summer. My Mama asked if I wanted to do a cooking show when I made them and she would record me, kind of like Rachael Ray. So that is how Cooking With Daria began!

I hope you will enjoy my new blog. Keep checking in to see what I'm cooking up next!

Happy Cooking,
