We've entered new territory around here - pretty much all my mothering ambitions came true when Orelia became my sous chef.
When you have a toddler who is very attached to you, there is no way to get any cooking done unless you do it together, so we are embracing it. I have a great kid-friendly cookbook that we've been making our way through. The cottage cheese pancakes are our favorite recipe so far.
Orelia enjoys mixing and watching, but her favorite part is definitely the eating. Nothing like a little sous chef action to work up an appetite!
