There is nothing like cooking with little people. I have said this over and over again. But seriously it is fun. I am a messy cook, so for me it is no different then cooking on my own. Taj is obsessed with cooking, and I mean obsessed. It is one of the first things he does in the morning when he gets up. He raids my cupboard, the drawers and puts together his own little kitchen. I am tripping over pots and pans all day.
While Keely was at pre school last week I thought it was time to involve Taj in our cooking adventures. Out came a banana muffin recipe from the latest Notebook magazine and off we cook, cook, cooked. (That is what Taj says, over and over again). The muffins were great and I was very impressed to see Keely eat them too. I however never told her about the mashed up banana that went in them. I told her they were vanilla! I have frozen half for the week ahead. This stops me from eating them all, and so far this is working.
This week I am not to sure what we will bake. I am missing our carrot and walnut cake, and it is high on my list. I have to give half away though, because I can honestly sit and eat the whole cake.
Do you bake with your little people? How do you stop yourself from eating the whole sweet treat?
