There is nothing better than to spend time preparing something delicious to eat
waiting patiently while it cooks, and then....
serving it up to the hungry hordes waiting in the wings
Eliza (pictured above) is preparing a delicious chocolate cake as a special treat for
her Grandfather's Birthday.
Note the little apron we always keep on hand for her when she visits.....
Also please note the look of total satisfaction on her face as she gets down to this serious business of baking !
In the picture below, Zoe is busy making scrambled eggs as a surprise for her Mum on Mother's Day........
utter concentration as the eggs are cracked one by one into the bowl
and how did the chocolate cake turn out?
Here it is, with rich chocolate icing and decorated to within an inch of its life
Truly a masterpiece !
Yes, people love to cook, and this was reaffirmed by the popularity of
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the trials and tribulations of the amateur chefs as they turned out average....not too bad..... pretty good....wonderful..... absolutely fantastic dishes
I watched their joys, their disappointments, their tears as they left the show, till finally there were only two .....
Only one could win of course, but in my eyes they were all winners.....
and I thank them all,
and the visiting chefs
and the judges
For stirring the pot, and getting thousands of viewers, potential chefs to start this wonderful adventure
of sharing a meal, with family and friends, prepared by their own hand.
How great is that !
