Both my girls LOVE to help us cook. Both Julian and Tucker eat almost anything. Teddy is the world's pickiest eater. And, Janey?? Well, she puts Teddy to shame. So while she does enjoy cooking, she will very rarely eat what she has made.
The cookbook has an easy recipe for chocolate chip pancakes, and since this is one of the very FEW things she WILL actually eat, we gave it a try.
My Janey is NOTHING if not totally independent. (Stubborn. Like her dad).
"I can do it by myself", is not so much a declaration as it is a mission statement!
While she was at school I measured everything out so she could "make it herself", with no help.
She loves to break the eggs, and has, after many failed attemps, become quite good at it.
Put them on the griddle......
