My sweet pea loves helping me in the kitchen, every day when I start cooking either dinner, lunch or whatever, she runs and gets the step stool and asks what she can do to help. It's super adorable and although most of the times it takes me longer to get anything done, I still love it.
I took these picture the other day, we were making blueberry muffins to lighten up our day, she had to stay home that day from school and wasn't too thrilled about that. I have fond memories of my mom baking cakes and letting me lick the spatula, so I hope my kids have some good memories about the simple things like this, too.
By the way, I used this recipe minus the turbinado sugar.
