Sous Chefs

Gabriel made muffins by himself for the first time last week, complete with doubling the recipe which meant adding fractions. I love how he wears my childhood apron, and how he made himself a chef’s hat to complete the uniform.

Thinking Big, Together

Think big. Great cooking is not the work of small minds. ~Robert Farrar Capon, The Supper of the Lamb: a Culinary Reflection, p63~ Family time means interacting with each other.
