With the long winter ahead of us, some of us might be looking for things to do with our kids to fill the time when we’re inside. While baking with kids is certainly not easy, it does a great job of passing a little time away. It also helps your kids learn a few skills, and you end up with a nice treat at the end. Win-win! If you’re looking for a new recipe to try out, here are 10 of our favourites.

Easy Homemade Cheddar Biscuits

There are few things we enjoy more than a slice of crusty bread, especially when topped with a hunk of aged cheddar and a dollop of jam. Even better when it’s this easy to make. Recipe here
