Hey, good lookin', whatcha got cookin?

I love that Pink is at the age where she loves to cook - not only in her play kitchen, but with actual ingredients. Blue has lost his love of helping in the kitchen (except when chocolate chips are involved), but Pink is my little helper. She loves to stir and knead and taste ingredients; including baking powder...yuck. I know that this age is going to pass, and she'll be too busy for things like this soon, but hopefully in a few years, she'll be back - maybe with her own recipes and ideas!


  1. Can't you just put chocolate chips in everything?

  2. Baking powder, huh? She's one upped Evan's love for lemon juice shots. :>

  3. Oh, and by the way her hair is darling! If I have a daughter someday I will need lessons.

  4. I think it’s great that you’re encouraging your daughter to help out in the kitchen and experiment with all the ingredients! Especially since research shows that kids who cook and eat meals together with their family are less likely to be obese, get better grades, and learn important skills such as following directions and teamwork. That’s why I work for The Kids Cook Monday, a new initiative of the Healthy Monday campaigns that encourages families to cook and eat meals together. To find out more about the benefits of preparing meals with your kids, check out our website at

    We’re looking for families to get involved by cooking meals together each week and sharing their experiences on their blog. If you’re interested in participating, please email me at Thanks!
