Taylor’s favorite show is Paula…. as in Paula Deen.
She also likes Bobby, and that Rachael lady, and dat ‘nother one that makes dinner in silly spaces. (Chef Robert Irvine: Dinner Impossible)
Basically, Taylor is a chef in training.
So what is she cooking up there? Spaghetti Sauce. Because you couldn’t screw it up if you tried. (onions, celery, carrot, garlic, mushrooms, peppers, and a couple of cans of diced tomatoes… salt and pepper to taste. a teaspoon or so of dried oregano and basil, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and our secret ingredient.)
Spaghetti sauce is really great for teaching short people to cook because there is a lot of chopping involved, and it cooks over low heat. People always eat more dinner when they made it themselves. ALSO: We are practicing not burning ourselves. It’s going well for THEM and not as much for ME. (I have been “taking one for the team”… you are welcome children-without-burned-forearms)
And THAT is what our cutie caboose Taylor is up to these days.
