My Nine-year-old's Baked Potato Recipe

MC's intense love affair for cooking continues. MC's kitchen interest is more intense, after the Nutrition Month. In fact, I was invited during their graduation day wherein the whole class created a buffet and invited their families. It was well-attended and the food was good; all prepared and the buffet table decorated by the third graders.

And her six-year-old sister's following on her footsteps, too. Another favorite recipe is the Baked Potato, because it is easy and have very simple ingredients; yet very aromatic and delicious. We have served the dish two times during dinner with guests and they loved it.

Here's the Baked Potato recipe:

1/4 kilo cubed potatoes
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. chopped chives
salt and pepper to taste

Wash, peel and cut the potatoes into cubes. Put into a big bowl. Add the olive oil, chopped chives, salt and pepper. Mix well then transfer the potato mixture in the oven pan. Meanwhile, heat the oven to 200 degrees. Then place the oven pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the potatoes turned golden.

Oh and since MC and IC are cooking together, MC reminded her sister about the golden kitchen rules before starting their job in the kitchen which involves:
- jewelries of any kind should be removed
- hands should be properly washed
- an apron is a must
- a dish towel should always be ready
- gather all the needed ingredients together

Cooking is really fun for them. I am proud because it is also fun seeing them enjoying themselves.
