I started Cade helping me make his favorite chocolate chip cookies at about a year and a half..He'd sit in the high chair and play with measureing spoons, then he graduated to standing on a kitchen chair, and helping me dump things in the bowl.. Now at 4 -1/2 he can tell me what to get out for the recipe, no Ma 2 eggs, not one he uses the electric beaters, fetches the flour, sugar, etc and mixes everything as I stand and watch. He just asked me, how many of those cups with the handle do you use of the flour? I think the next baking session, I'm going to stand back and let him run with the recipe...We've passed the spill stage and are now a step away from using the oven Well not really, but, that too will come...So, just think your little one might be doing this too, in no time at all. It's so much fun, I don't mind the ooooopsies now and then.

HEAVEN is Cade, Ethan,Carson, and Olivia,Alyssa,Gianna

I guess i got started because i kept on getting grounded as a kid and had nothing better to do.

Seriously though, it was at a very young age because my mom and dad would involve me quite often in cooking. I had such an infatuation with making crusciki (angel wings), home made noodles (kluski), and my own version of spaetzle, (poppy spaetzle) after watching a friends mom make it, that it just brought my into many other areas of cooking i never thought i'd get into.
Then i pretty much was cooking 4+ out of 7 days at 12 y/o, because i was able to adapt more quickly to my parents health concerns from their doctor. And it's not that my mom was a bad cook either, but just very old school, and didn't understand the "allowed" and "in moderation" foods from the doctor. And the rest is history

Well that's not a hard one. I had a hungry family.
