Brenna loves to make up her own recipes, and then she likes to bake them, and then she likes for me to taste them, and I do, with a smile, because that's what mamas do.:) She asks the question, at least, once a week - Mama, can I make up my own recipe? And I always answer with a - Sure, Baby - just be sure to clean up your mess. Below is her version of cleaning up the mess.
But I don't mind, at all. I love that she enjoys trying to create her own recipes - it makes her happy, and that makes me happy, so the mess doesn't matter. And her recipes are starting to taste better! Last week, when I was taste testing, I didn't really even have to fake the smile. She made cookies, and they tasted pretty darn good!
