Cooking Doesn't Get Much Easier

Fun and tasty dessert kits from Foodstirs

We do a little happy dance when something new comes along that makes feeding — and entertaining — kids a bit easier. Founded by LA mom Galit Laibow, Foodstirs is a collection of food-crafting kits that include fun dessert recipes (brownie cupcakes, sugar cookie lollipops) along with the requisite dry ingredients, plus a specialty food tool (like a wooden spoon or measuring spoons) and an easy-to-follow, kid-friendly dinner recipe suggestion to go with the dessert (you'll have to shop for those ingredients separately).

Recipes are chef-created, kid-tested, and broken down into eight simple steps. Each box is addressed and delivered to your child and comes with a food facts and skill sheet to facilitate family chats while you cook. Kits start at $27.99.
