kids at a bake sale

Chef Nikki Shaw: Well, here's a great way to let their creative juices flow and their entrepreneurial skills grow! Help your child take part in the next school bake sale.

First, make a list of all the recipe ingredients. Allow your child to search the store aisles for each item -- this will also familiarize them with having to do the family grocery shopping. Save the receipt to see the price of each item. Next, roughly estimate the cost of how much you really used. For example, if a dozen eggs cost $3.00 and you only used one egg for your cookie recipe, you only spent 25 cents on eggs.

Here comes the fun part: Get in the kitchen and create a masterpiece. Let them bake and individually wrap each tasty treat. Help your child give their product a reasonable price, then let them subtract the food cost to find the profit.

"NIK TIP": There's always a method to my madness! Enjoy the quality time that you'll be spending with your child -- this is priceless. Understand that there will be a mess -- just relax and let it be ALL ABOUT THEM.

In this bitter economy, I'll show you how to make life sweet right at home.

You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually something which I think I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complex and very broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead for your next submit, I will try to get the hold of it!

If it’s as good as they say then $50k is a bargain. But then you’ll be spending several times that on lenses and other peripheral components.
