Little Baker - Storytelling Session - Pearland, TX

One visit when I was at my mom's we were cleaning out her kitchen, because I love love love to clean things out and get rid of things! Fortunately for her and unfortunately for me I ended up bringing a lot of stuff home with me. You know, so some day I can clean it out of my house and have the satisfaction of getting rid of it ;-) One of those things was a Gold Medal Flour Alphabet kids cookbook that I had when I was little and I remember flipping through the pages and wanting to make everything. I checked out the copyright and it was printed in 1987, so this baby has been around awhile!

I thought about it one day when Maddox said he wanted to make something, so I pulled out the cookbook and he had so much fun flipping through and picking out something to make. Now everyday, (at 7am), he's asking for his cookbook so we can make something. Some days I give in (A is for Apple Crisp breakfast Tuesday apparently!) and some days I make him wait until the afternoon when sister is sleeping and we need a quiet activity. Its been great! He's learning his fractions, he's learning how to measure things and the best of all he's so proud to see what we've made. And its gotten me out of my comfort zone with cooking, making my own pie crusts and bread, something I would just buy or use my bread machine for before! And the recipes are super easy, with few ingredients so we're not making a huge mess, which scores major big time points with this Momma! 

The first thing we made was Mud Pie for M, and no, there was no mud in it, just lots of delicious chocolate! My camera is always hanging out on my kitchen bar so I grabbed it and snapped some photos along the way. Its been fun and I hope he continues to enjoy cooking and baking!

Oh wow! So awesome! And the picture with his hair wet and eyes down looks like Uncle Mark at that age! So glad you to see you two have special time like this! Thank you for sharing! Maybe a gourmet chef in the making!
