Easy Bake Oven

Annie and Ashley both asked, nay begged, for an Easy Bake Oven this year.  Their dad and Morgan got one for them to share.  They each also received some Easy Bake packets, too.

I remember getting my Easy Bake Oven as a little girl.  I was so excited to open the packets and get to baking.

"Oh yes, cooking on a light bulb" is the over-whelming memory I have of my mom on that day. 

The girls opened their oven a week ago at their dad's house for their Christmas there.  Morgan was sick the rest of the week so there was no chance to break in their cooking skills. 

Today, we got out the Easy Bake Oven.  They decided that they were going to make a pretzel pack while I got other cookie dough ready for later tonight.  By the time I put the last batch of dough into the fridge, there was flour EVERYWHERE (think: ceiling), pretzel nubs stuck in the pretzel pan, a couple of singed fingers, "hot" pan on my table, nacho cheese sauce in 14 million bowls, and 5 dirty bowls. 

Side note: have you ever seen an easy bake oven recipe pack? A cereal bowl is more than enough bowl; I think you could mix it in a 3 oz. Dixie cup.  There were ALL of my large mixing bowls with 2 sniffs of stuff in each.

The girls are so proud of the half-raw, coated in salt, stuck in the pan pretzel nubs they made.  They can't wait to cook their dessert dippers package. 

I guarantee that none of the foods shown here came out of the devil contration also shown here.
I'm just wondering which part is supposed to be EASY???
