Chef Tess Shares Fun Kid's Spring Break Cooking Projects On Fox 10

Are the kids making you crazy this week?! Join Me on Fox 10 AZAM this Monday morning at 9:45 for some crazy cool kitchen crafts to make some memories over Spring Break...and beyond!

In the past on Fox we've made a lot of things to keep the kids busy during the breaks. Our first kids segment was all about homemade play dough and since then I've tried to often include a lot of  Kids cooking . 

Monday we'll be making some fridge pickles
You can also explore the science of pickle making here.

We'll be making freezer jam on the segment.
I used the Ball instant freezer jam pectin from here
For full cooked jam instructions, join me in the kitchen when I had a
 A Jam Session with the Girls.  
It will give you step by step instructions on how to make it at home.  

We'll explore how to make a Solar Oven too! 
I'll be bringing My First Solar Oven!  
It was made of cardboard and one that I used for a few years!
For more information on building one of your own from cardboard boxes look here:
 How I built a Solar Oven or you can also find other Plans for Solar Cookers.
Homemade yogurt  would be a fun project to do with the kids to learn some kitchen chemistry!  
 Treasure Rocks are a great project for your young paleontologist.
Homemade bubbles are cool for any kid.
This week I'll be featuring some great kids cooking and craft ideas all week! 
It will be a great way to build some fun memories with the kids while still having a semblance of sanity. 

Here we go!

Stephanie you are so adorable.Your smile and laugh is so contagious, I love it!
I just got done watching the video and printing out all the fun recipes including the directions for a solar oven. I have wanted one for over 14years and I am done waiting on it. I will make one. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes & ideas.
