My L'il Chef - and her recipes!

I love, love, love that Tyler is developing a desire to cook! She's been making treats for the daycare kiddos this summer and this past Friday she wanted to step out and do more - so she made all the yummy snacks for my stamp class that night! And - they were all delicious!

She made chocolate chip Cookies that were soft and fluffy and scrumptious.

She made a chocolate chip - peanut butter cheese ball that we ate with graham crackers and "cowboy caviar" we dipped chips into (recipes for both are below!).

She also helped us to quench our thirst with a delicious batch of Cherry Limeade.

Tyler did a great job and had fun with it, too! She's already looking for new recipes to try for my next class!!
