A cook's joy

I'm beginning to see that the best recipes I come up with won't be the one's made for customers and the profit of my bosses. It's going to be recipes for my kids, recipes tweaked till I've made something exactly to their tastes, needs and general enjoyment. On Friday I perfected my baby pancakes recipe. Low in sugar, no egg whites, light and fluffy and incredibly easy for Wolf to eat. They even keep well in the fridge for an afternoon snack. I don't think I've ever felt happier about anything I've ever cooked in my life. Better than my first time baking a cake on my own. Better than the first time I didn't screw something up in the pastry kitchen and actually received praise. This is so much better and I can't wait to do more!

    so are egg whites not baby friendly? or are you scared of the allergens?

  2. Wonderful! You must start collecting the recipes you make for wolf and one day you can write a book! x

  3. Egg whites are apparently not baby friendly till they're over a year old. But he's had them since then in pancakes stolen from his dad's plate or bits of cake he somehow managed to grab. And then some poached egg sandwiches so he's all set.

    Allison I'd so love to write a book someday. Though I have a friend who is an expert cookbook editor and I'd like her to be first to do that!
