has been cooking up a storm lately. As in a new recipe every day.
Over the past five days she has made cookies, pesto from her own basil plants, pesto pinwheel rolls, a dessert for a friend hosting a dinner, strawberry muffins from scratch, and rice-krispie-treats-with-everything for my book club.
She's even let her little sister help.
She's quite confident and competent in the kitchen, so she needs very little help from me.
In fact, my only role (besides buying the ingredients) has been to take hot pans out of the oven. Oh, and taste testing of course. Maybe some extra taste testing on those pesto pinwheels...
Cooking makes my Katherine happy. And I'm more than content to reap the benefits of having my own personal chef.
