Curious Chef Review & Giveaway

Asher and I love to cook/bake together and usually make something yummy once a week together while the older boys are at school (typically a baked treat for them to have as a snack when they get home from school). I let him do as much as is possible, but a lot of the time the utensils are too big and awkward for him to handle. We got the most wonderful set of kid's size kitchen utensils (along with some other great goodies) from a company called Curious Chef!

I was able to review their 27 Piece Foundation Set and man is it cool! It comes with a Large Silicone Mixing Spatula, Silicone Pastry Brush, Large Poly Spoon, Whisk, Nylon Cookie Turner, Non Stick Rolling Pin, Kitchen Timer, 6 Piece Measuring Spoon Set, 6 Piece Measuring Cup Set, 3 Quart Mixing Bowl Set, Bear Cookie Cutter, Flower Cookie Cutter, Butterfly Cookie Cutter, and 4 Piece Child Chef Textile Set (apron, chef's hat and oven mitts). Here's a picture of it all for you...



Asher was absolutely thrilled when he was pulling everything out and couldn't wait to put his apron and hat on. He looked so darn cute!



I had a leftover refrigerated pie crust that I didn't want to go to waste, so Asher and I made some simple little cinnamon rolls as an after-school treat for the older boys (ok, for us too). Asher got in his little Apron and Chef hat and we got out the utensils he was going to use and he pretty much did it all himself. He brushed some melted butter onto the pie crust with his pastry brush, sprinkled cinnamon and sugar onto it and rolled it up. I cut it up and he helped me arrange it onto the cookie sheet and then he put on his little oven mitts and put the cookie sheet into the oven. It was so cute to see him so excited. I pulled the pan out of the oven when it was done, but he used his little cookie turner to pick them up off the cookie sheet and onto a plate. They were yummy and he had fun and now his "cooking gear" is one of his favorite little things. Such a fun way for us to spend time with each other and make something yummy that the whole family can enjoy. It makes Asher feel special when he cooks and then has his Dad and brothers tell him what a good job he did. It's awesome! Check out the pictures of our cooking process...






I think Curious Chef makes it easy and fun for kids to help out in the kitchen. It gives them a sense of responsibility and makes them feel special and accomplished. Who doesn't want that for their children? The coolest part is, that Curious Chef wants to give one of my readers a 27 Piece Foundation Set of their own! That's a $59.99 value set for free! Seriously, that's awesome and very generous! See below how you can earn entries to get this great set for your little one!
