Can't forget to credit my baking-buddy for helping me with the Cheesy Old Bay Biscuits!
I want to write a lot more about toddlers + baking + in general. But I'm waiting for Ada to wake from her nap so we can go back to the doctor. Again. For the third time since last Friday. This morning Ada woke -- it's day 4 of this fever -- and her temperature still is holding. Not quite as high, thank goodness, but now she has a rash. Just to be safe, we're getting checked out.
Please make this end for her soon, universe.
What I will say is that she's a trooper. Not been feeling the best on the medicines, but was much cheerier this morning, which is a good sign. We baked biscuits yesterday and I think being in the kitchen is one of her favorite things. I usually give her a few spoons or flour-caked measuring cups I'm done with and let her stand next to me on a dining room chair.
I hear a lot of "whassssthaaa?" So, I like to explain what I'm doing to her and then lower the bowl or whatever else to her level so she can see what I'm doing. It's so much fun. She loves trying to crack eggs and whisking most of all.
I think simple recipes are best (of course they are -- but REALLY with a toddler, no mixing or other equipment = less chance for mishaps). I hope to pass on to her my love for all things food. It would be a fantastic bond we could carry with us through holiday meals and the like for years and years to come.
