Little Chefs In the Kitchen- Final Roundup!

Here's the final roundup of the Little Chef entries! Thank you all for contributing and making this event a hit!

Abha, all the way from th
e land of kiwis- NZ, sent this recipe for Creamy Muffins with her "Cool Kids Cooking"! With due respect to Abha and her kids, I am going to do a separate post on their entry with all their wonderful pictures and the recipe, but in the meantime, here is a preview of these very cute little chefs whipping up a storm!

Look at that treat...but most of all, look at those happy faces! Utterly cute, I say!

Vini from Passion for Food: Tiramisu

Little Chef Ananya helped mom make tiramisu even though she suffered an injury..what a brave little chef she is!

Look at those cute little pink I wish for a girl!

Mommyof2: Whole
Wheat Cookies!

Here is little Chef A, who made a very healthy whole wheat cookie and decorated it all by himself! Look at that precious heart shape...well done, A!

Now that's a cookie, I wouldn't mind having.....! Wonderful Job A!

Sandeepa of Bong Mo
m's Cookbook: Banana Pancakes

Sandeepa's little chef S made banana pancakes for breakfast! As Sandeepa says, Little S is more than willing to help in the kitchen, and get this, she also helps her dad unload the dishwasher and help mumma pound the masalas! What a kid...!

Sunita of Sunita's World: Fruity Custard and Jelly Trifle

Sunita's Little Chefs come all the way from UK and they bring to us this awesome looking Fruity custard and Jelly Trifle. What a combo...a surefire hit with the kids! Great job, it looks delicious!

Prema from Prema's Cookbok: Pedaas!

Prema's 5 year old daughter made one of my favorite dessert- Pedaas! Look at that lovely star shape of that yummy pedaa! This recipe is really easy, by the way, I tried this last week and the pedaas came out great!

Shaheen from Malab
ar Spices: Heart Shaped Cookies!

Shaheen's son helped her make these heart shaped cookies...and he also added a special touch by sprinkling some sugar on them!
A creative cook already!

Suma of A
Clueless Cook: Garlic bread with an Indian Twist:

Little Chefs Shreyas and Shravya helped mom make Garlic bread with a twist....!
In Suma's own words "My son is not that little. So, instead of asking him to stir something, I chose a recipe where he can contribute maximum. My son enjoyed doing most of the work and my daughter did the sprinkling part happily. They wanted to do more and I had to stop them.".
