light reading

we are getting our daughter started early with the joy of cooking.
at school she plays in the kitchen, stirring away at imaginary mixtures.
at home she chops her toy vegetables, tastes all of our random creations, and now...
catches up on the latest in culinary literature. here she is devouring the a16 cookbook, which i just checked out of the library. you may notice that it is side by side with an eric carle kids board book about food.

her latest way to play in the kitchen is to basically pull out every single cookbook that we own (and i may add that that is quite a few cookbooks), flip through each one, and point to different pages all while babbling away in her special narration language. once she's done perusing she arranges the cookbooks in small stacks that she can stand on top of, only to leave the massive pile on the floor for her mommy to put away.the other day she insisted that i help her by making her a special cookbook seat (comprised of three large volumes) so she could sit at the table and intently "read" the recipes. i think we have a sous chef on our hands!


  1. i love that picture of her on the cookbooks!

  2. oh, little m, you are a girl after my own heart! i read cookbooks like novels, too.

  3. one pice of chocolate cake, one ice cream cone, one slice of swiss cheese, one slice of salami...i've got the whole thing memorized. seriously - the whole book. (: love the very hungry caterpillar and especially love poking little fingers in all the holes!
