What child doesn’t like donuts, sweet rolls, and quick breads? Even better, what child doesn’t like to make these super easy recipes with their moms, dads, brothers, or sisters? In this middle child class, we aim to inspire the middle child to bake! With easy recipes to follow and fool proof methods (and some adult supervision) your child will be whipping up some of the tastiest and most soothing baked goods to help keep the family warm in the dead of winter. We will show them how to flavor the dough with simple tips, how to decorate their concoctions with style as to impress even the oldest sibling in the family, all while using the most seasonal and healthy ingredients we can. These normal everyday recipes will be doctored up by good healthy and hearty whole grains, nuts, and seeds, while remaining completely child friendly as far as flavor goes! In fact, these healthy concoctions will end up being your child’s new best friend when it comes to sweets! So pack up the middle child and drop ‘em off for a winter afternoon of baking & sweetening with a healthy emphasis. They will learn, they will laugh, and they will be inspired to bake in their kitchens at home!

Rachel knows a thing or two about baking with kids; it’s one of her favorite past times! As a young mom for over 9 years to two beautiful children, Rachel has proves that instilling healthy eating excitement in her kids is doable, not easy, but doable! She also knows a thing or two about the middle child as her eldest is 9 years old and this age can be…..well….fiesty and particular and wanting to do everything themselves. Donuts, Quick Breads & Sweet Rolls are perfect for the middle child’s need to work on their own with fairly limited adult supervision and still capture success and bred creativity into the activity! When Rachel is not in the kitchen with her kids she is the sales manager & VP of operations here at the fruit & vegetable side of things at Ger-Nis International. She lives on two acres in New Jersey and loves to hang out outdoors and play with her family and two dogs- one gigantic and the other teeny weeny! Contact Rachel
