Here They Are! Little Chefs In Action......Check out what these Little Masters have been up to!

I'll be doing the roundup in two batches....just so each Little Chef and their recipe get the most exposure....they deserve the credit after all!

1. Ashaji of Foodie's Hope: Chocolate Chip Waffles.

Ashaji's Little Chef TJ whipped up Chocolate-Chip Waffles for breakfast. In Ashaji's own words, "My son TJ who is almost a tween, is very considerate person , a great student and always keen to lend a helping hand with my work everyday , made these Waffles all by himself for us ! He did a fabulous job and he makes me very proud to be his mom." Here are the Waffles made by TJ:

No wonder Mom is proud! Good Job TJ!

Maheshwari's son Ram, helps mom out to make Chicken Curry..all while sitting on the counter and asking what *this* is and what *that* is! What a curious cook.


5. IndoSunGod: Chapatis

IndoSunGod's daughter SK helped Mom make Chapatis! In ISG's own words..."She loves to cook the Chappathis as I am rolling them. She draws a stool close to the stove and helps me cook chappathis all the time yakking away, you know how eight years olds are. Everything has to be analyzed to the last detail. My fond hope is to teach her as much of Indian cooking as possible so she can enjoy cooking good food."
With a Wonderful mom like that, who wouldn't want to cook and learn from her??


6. Ashwini of Food For Thought: Date Cake
Ashwini writes of her little neice A:
"I made the date cake with my cousin and little niece A. She is a smart, mischievous, 5 going on 10 year old!! Whenever she comes over to our home she doesn't have anyone to play with, but still occupies herself with her puzzles and books. So when we baked the cake that day I was glad she could be involved in it. And she really enjoyed herself too."

What a *sweet* niece and of course, the aunt too!

7. Yum Yum Mum Mum: Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

YYMM's little Chef named Kodi has to be the youngest chef on the block! He is 16 months old, he sifts flour AND he stirs the batter! Good going Kodi!
Kodi, you can come over and bake with Sahil anytime! Love the way the Muffins look! You rock!

8.Linda's: Out Of the Garden: No Bake Strawberry Shortcake
