Cooking with the Bug

Cooking is a very important skill one that I believe is essential for happiness. A good meal goes beyond filling the belly it can make one feel truly loved. I LOVE to cook and that love of cooking was passed on from my parents and hubby is a chef so it was a no brainer that the minions would be taught to cook. They all love to cook and are very good at it. They have been cooking with us since they were tiny. Zed is all grown up and living on his own now and does all of the cooking in his home. He regularly wows his friends with his skills. King Conaher is famous for his bizzare and yet tasty creations. He is by far the most adventurous when it comes to food and melding flavors. Willowtree loves to bake so much that she has been tossing the idea around of becoming a pastry chef. The Bug at seven has decided that she can do it all by herself now :) So she made her first recipie with Mommy only observing. She chose one that she has made alot before Meringues.
The Shrek cookbook is her favorite
only two ingredients makes it perfect for little bakers
Sorry don`t have any pics of the actual mixing but her biggest challange is still seperating the yolks from the whites.
