How Lucky Am I...

Cami is the queen of making treats---cookies, peanut butter bars, apple-walnut pancakes, and scrambled eggs are all a part of her ever expanding repertoire. She keeps getting invited to live with friends and family who want their own personal chef as well.

So the other morning she was excitedly concocting a breakfast that had her asking me all sorts of unusual questions...where's the yeast? Where are the potato flakes? The evaporated milk?

...Then a shriek...yeah she got her hair caught around the springs of my KitchenAid.
After a quick snip with the scissors all was well again, and Cami finished making cinnamon rolls--FROM SCRATCH!!!
It took her two hours to make them and me another two hours to scrape the caked flour and sugar from every surface of the kitchen...

but it was definitely worth every second. They were completely perfect--soft and delicious. I'm pretty sure I never cooked with yeast until I was about 25, and then it took a few years from there to become reasonably adept at it.

So there you have it, I have an amazing 10-year-old!

Very, very impressive Cami! Too bad about your hair. Guess you need to start putting it in a ponytail when you cook :o)

I love the new header on your on the blog! Looks very professional.

Cami, we sure wished you lived closer-so we could share some of your treats occasionally.

Grandma never makes me anything sweet since I am always on a diet. Luckily Tim will make me some chocolate chip or no-bake cookies or lemon bars from time-to-time.

Tell you Mom that we love the new header and format.

She does an awesome job.

Love, Grandpa and Grandma
