Santa brought an Easy Bake Oven this year. It seems kind of silly considering how much we do together in the kitchen. She had Yummy Nummies on her Christmas list and I was all What Is This Crap? I convinced her that something that could be used again with store-bought ingredients might be a better choice. Today she made the frosted cookies that came in the box, and I realized how this is different than cooking with me: she can do everything herself. Normally she helps, but I still do the hot stuff with the oven. That tiny bit of additional independence was a big deal. The only thing that makes me a little sad is that there’s no lightbulb anymore. I always thought cooking with a lightbulb was super cool.
