If you are a regular here you know that my #1 assistant in the kitchen is always my son Jackson.  Any chance he can get to help stir, pour, dump and sprinkle he does it!  He is a chef in the making, and I LOVE it!!  And I definitely know that this is the reason he is so open to trying new things.  His new favorite statement (at almost every meal) is "Mommy, I like everything.  I really like to eat everything!"  How cool is that to hear from your kids mouths?!!

A food blog that I like top frequent is Soufflé Bombay.  Colleen, the author of the blog is also a co-author to this brilliant cookbook called Picture Me Cooking.  Not only is it a cookbook for kids, but also a scrapbook for you to add pictures of your own children to make it extra special.  What an awesome keepsake!  I know, it is one of those "Why didn't I think of that?!"

Well be sure to head on over to the website for Picture Me Cooking to see my own Jackson as their Junior Chef in the spotlight!  I wish you could have seen Jackson when I showed him this morning.  He was so excited!  She also featured our favorite Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins.  Yum!


  1. Amie This is so sweet and awesome. You know this is a soft spot in my heart as my own son, Korey is now pursuing his culinary dream -- often when he comes home from school he shares what he has learned and tried -- it is so exciting to share this with him because of my love for cooking too. And since he moved back home, he has honored us with his culinary experiements -- yummy yummy. And I agree with you -- they are more willing to try if their hands are involved in the making..

  2. How cute. He's going to be a little culinary master one day.

  3. Oh Kathleen and Lisa, how I would love it if he became a chef one day!! I am so proud of Korey finally taking the step to go off to culinary school (and insanely jealous!!). You have to be over the moon. I can only imagine how exciting it must be to watch him do something he loves and is so good at.
