Breakfast Lab in Foods

On Wednesday in Foods we made breakfast- Crepes, Belgian waffles, Stuffed French Toast, German Pancakes, and Barnum's Syrup (otherwise known as liquid gold). The students did a pretty good job considering the tools we have to work with.

Wow! Just... wow. Interior Design Genius

My FACS students have just finished their Interior Design unit.  And here are some of the AMAZING room designs that were turned in.  Sorry for all the pics, but I had to show some of the totally awesome rooms. :) Check out the detail... can you figure out what they used to make their rooms?

Today in Foods we made fudge!!  It turned out smooth and creamy!! Yum!!

Cookies... kind of.

So our full lab in Foods (the cookie lab) didn't turn out so hot.  1st period struggled.  2nd period had no power to bake. And 4th period did ok. Let's take a look at what happened...

 Does "how" something look make a difference in how it tastes?
 What happened with these snickerdoodles (above)?  How about below?
This is the way they should look...
The peanut butter cookie groups did an okay job...
 As did the dumpster cookie groups.  What is the point of dumpster cookies?
What happened here?
 And here?

 Cookie lab was a great learning experience!  I hope you enjoyed the cookies that you ate!!
