chef BOYardee

In homage to the whole "nuthin' says luvin' like somethin' from the oven" notion, my lil' sous chef (emeril in the making!) and I whipped up a couple of batches of chocolate chip cookies to send to my grandparents. I think Coop poured more chunks of chocolate down his little gullet than he actually got in the bowl ... but he was just. so. stinkin'. cute. I couldn't say no. ;)

Coop started chomping on the chips before i could even break out the mixer. That's my guy ... inhaling fist fulls of chocolate!

This was just after a tear fest of epic proportion. who knew that butter wrapper could be so dang tricky!

Look at that face ... he's in aww. Nearly 2 and the lil' man has never seen a mixer in mama's kitchen before ... what can i say, betty crocker I'm not (though i do have her cook book, which may or may not be covered in dust)

totally off the cookie convo, but look at those lashes! plucked those right off his aunt amy's eyes ... i'm so jealous.

one for you ...

12 for me.

apron by grandma. sweet, chocolate-covered cutie by nestle.

p.s. The stand mixer in the pic holds a special place in my heart. It was my grandma's ... she and I used to make cookies together using that same mixer when i was just a little older than Coop.
