My pride and joy is visiting with us for a week!  Damien is now two months from turning three years old!  Now he has been cooking with Gramma since he was 18 months old... so you see he is a seasoned veteran!

His favorite thing to do is play with his Thomas the train... but his second thing to do is Bake! 

When the Kitchen Aid gets moved to the center of the counter top... I hear the scooting of the dining room chair, across the kitchen floor!  " I got it" exclaimes Damien... " I got my chair!"  He immediately pulls the flour canister and the sugar canister away from the wall!  

We have decided to bake cupcakes...http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-cupcakes-with-caramel-frosting/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=chocolate%20cupcakes&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=%2fmenus%2fmain.aspx... we gather all our ingredients and Damien has a very quizical look on his face... I ask " whats the matter?"  He points to the grape jelly and said..." what's jelly for?  Then he exclaimed... mayonaise????  I said yep!   Damien looked up at my face and gently said.. are we making cupcakes or sammiches?

After accepting the fact that we were indeed making cupcakes... we set to work!

My little man is really getting proficient in helping to measure and count!  His pouring skills have really come along... all of the... or most of the ingredients are making it into the mixing bowl! Gramma couldn't be prouder!

Into the oven... our masterpiece goes!  Damien loves to watch the batter rise and smell the delectible goodies as the cook! Out of the oven and onto the cooling racks... then Icing!!!

Another great day int the kitchen with my favorite future chef!!!!

In addition to his measuring and pouring skills, he has beater licking down pat! What a cutie!

If you double dip the beaters, I bet he wouldn't complain, too much!

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
