    What are some good recipes to use for the Mommy and Me Shows? Also do any of you have good luck with bookings, sales and attendance from these shows?

  2. I made a fruit pizza the last time I had a Kids-in-the-Kitchen cooking show.

    Fruit Pizza
    Prep Time: 20 minutes
    Cook Time: 12 minutes

    * 1 (18-ounce) package refrigerated cookie dough
    * 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
    * 1/3 cup sugar
    * 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or other flavoring (almond, orange, or lemon)
    * Fresh blueberries, banana slices, mandarin orange sections, seedless grapes, strawberry halves, kiwifruit (or any other
    * 1/2 cup orange, peach, or apricot preserves
    * 1 Tablespoon water

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line an ungreased 14-inch pizza pan with cookie dough cut in 1/8-inch slices, overlapping slightly. Bake 12 minutes or until light brown; remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. (I used one package of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix and spread it out over a large rectangular baking stone/baking sheet.)

    In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract or other flavoring; spread over cookie crust. Arrange fruit over cream cheese layer in any design you want (use your imagination).

    In a small saucepan over very low heat, make a glaze by heating preserves and water. Brush glaze over fruit, making sure to cover the fruit that will turn dark. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Note: This does not keep well, so plan on using it up. You may also use your own sugar cookie recipe in place of the refrigerated dough.

    Makes 8 to 10 servings

    It's delicious. Both the kids and the moms enjoyed it.

    My attendance has been decent. There were about 10 at one of my shows. Sales, wasn't great, but for me personally, it was pretty good at $300. I didn't get any bookings. That was a downer. But overall, it was better than my first kids show.
