Little Chefs In the Kitchen Roundup- Part I

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!

2. Swapna of Susarla's Kitchen: Banana Milk Shake - Entry # 1

Swapna's daughter Vaishu helped mom make this delicious Banana Milk Shake!

Look at those cute hands chopping the bananas.....Great looking Shake Vaishu!


3. Swapna of Susarla's Kitchen: Dhokla - Entry # 2

This time, Vaishu helped her mom in making a Gujarati delight....Dhokla!
Those look really out Gujjus! This little chef knows what she is doing!


4. Maheshwari of Beyond the Usual: Chicken Curry

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
Linda's daughter Megan made this when she was 12-13 years old....hope your daughter will soon join you in the kitchen and whip up wonderful treats just like you do! The Shortcake looks delicious nonetheless..with all those fresh strawberries and whipped cream....yum.


9. RP of My Workshop: Dessert Pizza: Entry# 1.

RP's daughter made this unique dessert pizza....just look at how creative this is..I can just imagine the taste of all the fresh fruits with the cream cheese.... A perfect summer treat!

Entry # 2: Old fashioned Cake.....

Another entry by RP and her daughter is this delicious looking cake, an old-fashioned cake.....made with Hot milk to give it extra moistness.....! Looks wonderful.


10. Lakshmi Ammal's: Pecan Shortbread Cookies

Lakshmi Ammal and her daughter sent me this delicious entry for Pecan Shortbread cookies.
Lakshmi's daughter is full of energy and curiosity....following her mother around in the kitchen as she sampling familiar does that sound to many of us? Didn't we all do that at some point in our childhood days??? I know, I did!

Lakshmi, your daughter's enthusiasm is evident in her creativity...just look at these cookies and its presentation!


11. Rinku: Mom's Chronicles: Corn Bread with Deepta and Adi:

Rinku sends us this entry of Corn bread made with the help of her adorable daughter, how cute!
I just love watching kids stir up things.....mind you, food....not trouble!

Look at these adorable pictures!


What a great job done by all! Rest of the Little Chefs roundup coming in the next post!

Great round up, Trupti!!!

Anjali said...

Trupti I had one tough time trying to put together a post for this event and I could not finally post it when my borrowed kids decided to bring down hell on me. More about the misadventure later.

Loved all the little chefs showing here, tiny hands some faces. A shower of kisses to all the little chefs.

Is it easier with your own kids? wondering!
