I've had children "helping" me cook since they were able to sit on the counter or grab a stool. Tonight one of those children - who happens to be 6'7" tall decided he wanted to make doughnuts when he heard about the raves of this recipe Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts. Just the mere mention of the word doughnuts and it was all over. Here is a little glimpse of the process. Notice the 2-yr old on the counter. Yep, this is a familiar place for him. I figure his future wife will thank me one day when she's suffering from morning sickness and he prepares a feast for her.
If you happen to watch the video (click the arrow on the second picture), you will see my very stoic child who does not talk. Well, he does talk, but only when he wants to talk. As the youngest of seven children, there is no need for him to talk. It's interesting, as we are doing school, he will copy the children when they read words outloud, but if you ask him to talk, forget it.
The doughnuts were a hit. (Side note - we made maple icing instead.)
