Young Chefs Cookbook GIVEAWAY Plus Homemade Raspberry Cream Cheese Spread

*Giveaway is now closed.  Click HERE to see the winner*

A cookbook for kids giveaway.  

This cute book is made to help you teach your kids to cook from the ground up.  You start off simple by showing them how to crack eggs and measure flour and work up to teaching them how to get something hot out of the oven.

At the top of each recipe, there is a picture of a kitchen tool (blender, microwave, oven, etc. . . ).  So you can quickly glance at the recipe and see if your child will be able to handle it by themselves or if they will need a little adult help.  There are super simple recipes and there are more involved recipes.
Some of the recipes I can't wait to try are the Pink Smoothies, Cowboy Eggs, Blonde Trail Mix, Best Nachos Ever, Grandma's Applesauce Cookies and
Special Day Ice Cream Cake.

This time, I chose to try the raspberry cream cheese spread.  This recipe requires no adult help.  I love me some bagels and it never crossed my mind to make my own flavored cream cheese spread.  It was so easy and it was seriously DELICIOUS, not to mention a lot cheaper than store-bought flavored cream cheese.

Overall, I think this cookbook is fun and easy to follow.  If you are interested in showing your kids how to cook, then this is the perfect way to get them started.
Raspberry Cream Cheese Spread
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 Tbl. raspberry jam (or favorite jam)
2 Tbl. powdered sugar
2 bagels, cut in half

In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, jam and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.  Serve on bagels or toast.
