During this summer my youngest daughter has been baking quite often. She is 10 years old and dreams of owning a bake shop. I say,”dream high my baby girl”. My job is to support her on her dreams and help on whatever I can. In this case is with some baking lessons. When you were a kid, what did you dream on becoming? I also wanted to own a coffee shop with lots of baked goods. It helped that my first job was in a family owned bakery, owned by my cousin. Pretty much a “Cake Boss” kind of deal. Funny how things happen. Now, I bake for our family, friends and anyone around me. For fun, for love and to share here on the blog.
Here’s what my girl baked for a Friday night gathering, flowerless mocha cupcakes topped with whipped cream. Super simple and fun to make. I wanted her to start baking fast, easy and delicious goodies. When she gets older and want to add more intricate recipes to her repertoire, I’ll be there to help as well.
I love getting in the kitchen with my girls. We are building a foundation early on. A passion for food, where it comes from and the variety of dishes that can be made. Get kids into your kitchen, get messy, have lots of laughs and make memories. All of these are, priceless.
Now, tell me what have you been making this summer? Any new recipes or crafts?

Making memories around the kitchen table and capturing them with my camera is where you’ll find me. Unless I’m boarding a plane or on a road trip somewhere with my girls.
