I'm no chef

I'm going to be honest here, I'm not a chef by any means.  I don't cook and choose not to learn, despite the many many cook books my mother has given me over the years.  That's bad I know!  One day I'm going to have to stray from this and actually learn some recipes.  On the other hand I love to bake.  I'm sure all you girls out there remember those Easy Bake Ovens!?  Oh boy did I love mine!  I love dough soo much I would end up eating most of it before it was baked! But mostly I love baking because some of my best memories with my mom when I was little was helping her make cookies or cinnamon rolls. 
(By the way, I'm not bias or anything but my moms cinnamon rolls are WAY better than anyone else!)

In the future I really truly hope to make those memories with the twins.  Teach them the ways of eating dough and playing in the flour!  

I just love that items are at the tips of our fingers these days thanks to the interweb!  I was just browsing and came across some really great cooking/baking items for kids:

This is something I totally wish I had now!  The Bakers Hat (ages 3-8)-

The Apron (You know your kiddies will look awesome in this, for girls of course ;)  )-

Or for the Boys (or girls too I guess)-

Now, I think my 2nd favorite part about baking with my mom was rolling the dough through the flour!  So much fun! Then cutting them out into crazy shapes!

Cookie Cutters (my favorites I've found)-

Well....You get the picture!  I'm excited!  It's going to give me some great reasons to get the girls interested in baking and having fun while making a huge mess!!

It's so hard not to anticipate the future and what great things are to come!  


  1. LOVE those cookie cutters! I needed some new ones - thanks for sharing!

  2. The kitchen helper is such a great idea!
    I don't like to cook either. I usually just make the easiest meals possible. I wish I liked to bake, but I kind of hate that too. I love baked goods too much though so maybe it's a good thing I don't make them...

  3. What cute cookie cutters! I like to cook, but I'm so lazy about it sometimes. :)
