My middle child (and oldest son) has definitely taken after his mama with his love of baking. Actually, if you ask him, he doesn’t just like to bake but he also likes to cook. You see, I definitely see the difference, as I consider “cooking” as making actual meals and things that might taste good or might not (and just be good for you!), but baking on the other hand, is all about making delicious desserts! Think about it, the last time you baked, it was something delicious, right? Yet, maybe the last time you cooked was just to make a meal. It was fine but it may not have been the most delicious thing you’ve eaten in a while.
Okay, back to my son. He loves to make cookies (just like his mama!) and has been on a kick lately that he is going to have his own bakery when he gets older. He even asked for baking supplies and an apron for Christmas. Well, my sister-in-law took it a step further and bought him an adorable matching apron and hat with his name monogrammed on it. Needless to say, he absolutely loves it and he can’t even crack an egg to make breakfast without wearing it.
Last summer, he did a video for us on How Make S’Mores Waffle Bites and now the recipe video bug has hit him again. While he had a few days off school this week, it was his idea to make a cookie video. He set up the lights, got out the camera and put on the apron and hat! He had so much fun making the video that we have given him his own video series – “Cooking with Chef Sawyer”. Yeah, I don’t have to tell you that a video series with his own intro didn’t make this 8 year old super happy, do I?
In his first video of the series, Sawyer shows you how easy it is to make Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies! He would sure appreciate it if you’d watch! 🙂
