Extraschooling’s Experimental Kitchen – Sample Pages

This is no step-by-step recipe book; it is an adventure into the culinary world. The recipes are recognizable and accessible so that kids can focus on ingredients, flavor, texture, color, and creativity. It encourages exploration and variation, with room for them to write their own versions or create entirely new dishes of their own.

Along the way they will find questions to get them thinking and research prompts for deeper learning, as well as kitchen experiments to expand their knowledge of the science of cooking.

The book also has areas for them to fill in as they go, such as a glossary, substitutions, and conversions, plus room to collect recipes that catch their eye.

If you have a budding chef with a sense of adventure, get cooking in your own experimental kitchen with this latest addition to the Eclectic Kids series – and keep scrolling down the page to let them try their hand with a recipe from my childhood that has been experimented on across the decades!

An egg-less muffin that relies only on its mix-ins for sweetness, this is a favorite breakfast food and perfect snack to pack along on a hike.

From Our Kitchen to Yours…

Enjoy this healthed-up version of an old family recipe that we put to use any time we have overly ripe bananas!



Who am I? Foremost, the lucky momma of an amazing boy. To be perfectly honest, I am less his teacher than he is my inspiration - I have learned at least as much from him in the last eight years as he has from me. I am an old-timer at heart; I'd rather live on a farm, garden, crochet, and raise my kid out in the sun than anything else. I'm a bit of a technological dinosaur, more geared toward life where you can get your hands dirty and have some fun exploring, learning, and growing. I'm a homeschooled, homeschooling single parent with a passion for my son, nature, and the simple life. I am not here to pretend I know it all or lay out the research or provide a step-by-step game plan. I hope to encourage and inspire families to join in the journey of learning together - and have the fun that life is supposed to be made of along the way. Happy exploring!
