What are we about here at Bakeroose?

Chef Stephanie Petersen is know as Chef Tess Bakeresse. She is joined in her cooking adventures here on the Bakeroose blog by her two sons, Little Man and Face. We also have regular posts from other Little Chefs who share their cooking adventures. Our kid's blog is a help to moms, grandmas, grandpas and caregivers. We want to help a whole new generation of cooks get excited about the culinary world. If you cook together and have the desire to join our Bakeroose, feel free to send an email to Chef Stephanie Petersen (chef-tess@hotmail.com). If we like what we see, we'll add your story! That simple. If you homeschool, welcome! We have a twice monthly bakeroose class that will be highlighted on this blog as a way to incorporate food science into your child's education. We hope you want to come back again and again. Even better, we hope you like it enough to want to share your cooking experiences and anything you learn along the way! We are so excited to hear from you! Chef Stephanie's main blog is http://www.cheftessbakeresse..com/

Solar Bakeroose

Alternative cooking methods are alive and well here with our Bakeroose!

Home baked bread and rolls...

Baked by the sun in three solar ovens!

Today the Bakeroose got together for some basics in solar baking and some fun hamburger patty making. We think it's wonderful to cook with the sun. Arizona is the perfect place for it...and the kids get a real appreciation for the natural resources we have. Hopefully we're raising a whole new generation of earth friendly kiddos.

For hamburgers, we added half of a large chopped onion that the kids chopped. Mixed it into 3 pounds of hamburger along with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Some of the girls didn't like touching the meat. Two jumped right in along with Little Man and his friend Q.

Dolphin Girl played Flipper and grilled the burgers while the buns baked.

We had so much fun making these mini burgers and learning some basics on how to cook with the sun.

The mini hamburger buns are made of the 5 day bread dough . This dough is great because it's good in the fridge for five days. You can make the dough Monday and use a portion everyday for whatever you are making. Bread, pizza, bread sticks...you name it.

When the hamburgers and buns where ready, we started in.

Get a Global solar oven here: Preparing Wisely . Special Thanks to Troy and Tracey Adair for the use of their personal and store floor model sun oven we used in the making of this class. It was so fun!
