My Captured Moment #25 – Cooking Up A Storm


This week’s My Captured Moment was taken over the Christmas period. Our little girl had so much fun decorating (and of course, eating) all kinds of different biscuits. I love it when she comes into the kitchen to help me. Many afternoons are spent baking and preparing dinner for when Daddy comes home from work. I promise I’ll get round to posting my most favourite child friendly recipes here, soon. She is quite a fussy eater, but I find that when she helps to prepare the food, she is more likely to eat it. My parents gave her the most gorgeous little apron set (including little oven gloves and matching tea towels) for Christmas. Our little one wears them proudly when we cook or bake.

      I really enjoy baking and cooking together with her (although there is usually a bit more mess :-)).

    Oh that is a lovely picture. and lovely to see. My eldest is at university and she regularly cooks and bakes for her house mates, I am convinced that it was her early participation in the kitchen that has influenced it. The youngest at 12 can also turn out a decent batch of cupcakes, skills for life I say. A great captured moment xx

      Thanks Lisa! I really hope she’ll always be as keen on cooking and baking as she is right now :-).

    Hi Heidi, I love it when children are engrossed in what they are doing. This is a lovely captured moment. I am sure it won’t be long until you are helping your little girl in the kitchen!
