My brother, who is only 8 years old, thinks he can cook. It all started when he and my parents went to Ikea and bought this cookbook geared towards making great meals for kids.

One day, he sneaked into the kitchen and I found him cutting apple slices/bread and microwaving Ferrer Rocher chocolate candies. I immediately grabbed the knife away from him and helped him cut the apples. Going with the flow, I followed his directions. He substituted a couple things from the original recipe.

And voila! This is his first creation…not too shabby…it’s just bread, fruit, and chocolate candy mixed together.

Then the next day, my parents were gone for the day and I was alone with my brother in the house. All of a sudden, I heard a racket in the kitchen. My brother was there once again! This time, he already peeled a potato by himself and started mashing it (after microwaving it). He added some butter and it tasted fine…at least it wasn’t raw.

Hours later, he was in the kitchen again. He had already made perfect tomato slices and put them on top of four slices of hamburger buns with ketchup and mozzarella cheese. My mother went into the kitchen and added diced spam and green bell peppers. This was the best yet! (By the way, he loves fake tattoos as you can see in the picture below). I loved how he chirped, “This is for dinner!”

Thank you brother for making my day with your unexpected surprises! (He was thrilled when I told him I was going to put his creations on my blog).
