Boys In The Kitchen

Its no secret that I love everything there is about food.  From selecting or dreaming up recipes to preparing it and eating it, I enjoy food.  Maybe in my next life I'll come back as a great chef; in the meantime I'm content to cook for my friends and family.  This weekend resulted in a cooking marathon on my part--- nine distinct dishes in two days with only one mishap.

I love the fact that Sidney is taking after his Mamma. Not only does he love food and is always willing to try new things (quite impressive for a three year old) but he loves to help out in the kitchen.  This is big......this weekend he stopped playing with his train set to come into the kitchen to cook with me.  Forget playing house and holding tea parties; my son wants to cook.

Mamma's little helper

Together we made pumpkin doughnuts and to quote Sidney "Oooohhhhh Mamma, these are so good!"  You can find the recipe here.

    I love cooking with my kiddos! My 8 year old abandoned his video games last night to help me make onion straws! Love it!

    1. I just love the fact that my truck, train, airplane, and ball playing son loves to cook. Last night he helped me sear beef and his only response to the splattering coming from the hot pan was that we need to be more careful. Such fun.
