Well evidently I've found something that she LOVES to help with, and since that first experiment with the cake she has to drag a chair into the kitchen everyday and "help" cook something. It is really cute, but unfortunately she wants to help make everything! A few nights ago she got so mad at me when I wouldn't let her play with the raw chicken that I was breading for dinner.
In the 2 short weeks since the cake we have already made Apple Pie, Bread Bowls (for chili), Chocolate White Chip Cookies, and Fudge Brownies. But before you start to think that we are all beginning to pack on the pounds around here, you should know: I was experimenting with the pie and it grew mold after just 2 days because it was under-cooked (fail), the cookies went to work with Ant, and the bread bowls turned out like this...
What the heck are those?!
Even though Ant assured me that they tasted just fine, this is just another example of my complete inability to make bread/rolls. No matter what kind I make or method I use, they just always go wonky. Maybe someone should get me a bread maker for Christmas. So far, this is the closest I've ever gotten to something presentable, and I'm not even sure it turned out properly! : P
Oh well, at least we had fun!

Random Memory: This was the first/last time Reli baked cookies with me.
So, do you let your little ones "help" you cook? What is their favorite thing to make with you?
I'm really looking forward to the holiday cookies this year. Who wants the one with the baby drool?
