the joy of cooking.

i have a secret desire to be rachel ray.
reasons being:
1. she is so dang cute. and real. and i love her raspy voice.
2. it would significantly improve my cooking...
3. one of my very favorite things to do is to cook, so cooking all day...trying new recipes all the time...would be fantastic.

but, since becoming rachel ray is not going to happen for me any time soon...i decided to get the next best thing...my own sous chef. i think you'll see she's pretty dang cute.


i love my little sous chef.

Okay that is the CUTEST SIOUX CHEF I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! I cant even stand it!! Next time you come up to your moms call me so I can meet her.. I bet her and Shelby would be good friends!!

Oh and yes I am sure you know Wicked is coming to Utah... in 09.. I wish I would have read your post about it forever ago because I got a handful of tickets from my in laws.. they are season ticket holders at Capitol theater... so I already took everyones orders..... I actually need a few more so I will be waiting in line this November the morning they go on sale.... If you would like to join me.. :) I would love the company... give me a call...

Yes, Rachel Ray is a doll, but she doesn't have that little apprentice hanging from her neck! I want you to cook for me!
Loves, Loves, See you this weekend.

So cute.

I did this with my kids a couple times. They wanted to be held and I was busy, so in they went and let me tell you...it's a lot harder than it looks. But then, I guess you would know that. :)

Wow! And I thought it was hard to cook with my dog lying around the kitchen. You do it all with the babykins! I also dream of doing nothing but cooking all day...a weird fantasy to be having in 08, since the worst thing you could say to our mothers was "get back in the kitchen!"

p.s. maybe for your first Mother's Day (oh man! crazy thought) Mike could get you this - the grandmama of all modern cookbooks -

Darling post! I'm pretty impressed with your Rachel Ray - ness. I barely have the coordination to make something without burning myself let alone not causing serious damage to a child strapped to my belly! Can I come get lessons from you when I have children? :) please?
