The five year old cooks!
Little M made mini-ricotta cheesecakes the other day. She has been inventing her own recipes for cakes and cupcakes for a while now. Baking soda is the hardest part to get right, but she is a quick study. This recipe she dug out of a recipe book Miss Bettye gave her. She absolutely loves this recipe book and counts on it for all her cooking inspiration. I am going to have to give her another kids cookbook for her birthday because she needs to widen her range to things other than sweet treats. I say that in the most loving way. I just cannot look at the peanut butter cupcake recipe another time.
This last week her mini-cheesecakes turned out just fine for a five year old talent. I made her do the dishes after she was finished, and her butt was so cute, I had to take photos.
The first day of kindergarten she told me..."mama, kindergarten is so great! I get to wash dishes there!" Three big cheers for waldorf kindgerten.
Monday I will post the great photos I took from our beach adventure today.
