I’ve been on a pina colada kick lately. There was the Pina Colada Protein Smoothie Bowl. I made a Pina Colada Cake yesterday and have basically submerged myself in all things pineapple and coconut.  When you buy a whole pineapple and papaya, you have to use them up.  I hate wasting food.  The fantastic thing about this breakfast is how easy it is.  Kids can easily make this for their parents for breakfast.  We have started letting our daughter cut food with a 6-inch chef’s knife.

Watching her is excruciating worrying she is going to cut herself.  We won’t let her near the oven.  We thought we were quite progressive with her in the kitchen until we watched Master Chef Junior.  Oh my goodness!  I am not sure I could even cook some of the things they do.  The kids are amazing.  It makes me feel like a “helicopter” parent in the kitchen.  I realized she could do so much more.  So now she is allowed to cook scrambled eggs on the stove.  Woo wee, that was a leap of faith for me.

I always wonder if the kids get to use recipes, or do they have all the measurements in their head? Yesterday I decided to make a Pina Colada Cake off the top of my head. Oh! big mistake. I had a little nagging voice in the back of my head saying you are putting too much liquid in. Did I listen? Oh no, I just kept right on going. As soon as I poured it into the pan, I knew I was sunk, quite literally. The cake rose nicely in the pan, and then sunk to a big mess while cooling. Stupid! While it was cooking, I sat down and reconfigured the recipe. I should have done that from the beginning. I tearfully had to throw the other one away. What was I thinking?

Do you let your kids cook? At what age did you let them start? If you haven’t, let them start with this recipe. You can cut up the fruit for them, but let them put all the ingredients in the bowl and mix. They can pour it into the baking dish and you can put it in the oven. They will feel quite triumphant about their new accomplishment.
