I've always tried to give my three monkeys ample opportunities to
The first competition was won by a landslide by ♥Ashlyn♥, who was delighted to make one of her favorite indulgences ~ cinnamon rolls! I didn't get any photos of my assistant chef in action, but you can see some of the final product......
Can't you almost smell that ooey-gooey cinnamon goodness? ; )
During the cinnamon roll competition, I noticed that ♥Jacob♥ wasn't nearly as motivated to win as I would have liked ~ so once again, I played the part of savvy mom & chose the next prize to be something he had been asking to make for a VERY LONG TIME. By "very long time", I mean the first time he asked to make them was about 3 years ago. I'm such a very bad mom for not making them until now! : ( Anyway, it turned out that ♥Jacob♥ and ♥Robert♥ both found this prize highly appealing....
The competition was neck-and-neck & resulted in a tie.....as you can see, with ♥Ashlyn♥ having already won the Cinnamon Roll competition, she felt she could loosen up a bit. They all probably deserved many more marks that this.....I guess I was a little soft on them this week! ; ) BUT, we did have their Gram visiting also ~ so the fun times associated with that naturally resulted in better attitudes.
♥Jacob♥ likes using the mixer.....it's like using a power tool for the kitchen!
Assistant Chef ♥Robert♥ sharpening his math skills and coordination skills by measuring ingredients, then posing for a picture and adding the flour to the mixer at the same time. ; )
Some of the doughnuts before getting their oil bath.....and no, that is not a dirty piece of stonware that they are rising on. All Pampered Chef connaisseurs know ~ it is just properly "seasoned"!
You know you want one ; )
It looks like he is saying "ewww!", but he was actually jumping up & down saying "Oh, Oh, Oh my goodness...these are so good I can't even stand it!" after his first taste test of his homemade doughnut!
He tends to live on the expressive side of life!
♥Robert ♥ with his eyes closed because he just had to focus and relish every sweet & unhealthy second of his reward!
2 Thumbs Up.....followed by, can we make ♥chocolate ♥ doughnuts next week???
