MASTERCHEF JUNIOR in Training


This is my favorite little chef, Avery. 
You already know Avery, if you follow me on Instagram. We are BFFs.
We love to do girls' lunches with her Mom.

Avery is 20 months old and already baking cookies for her class parties!
She was making Halloween cookies in this photo. 
She is concentrating really hard on getting her measurements right. That is a sign of a good baker!

I think it is so much fun to cook with kids and get them involved in the kitchen. 
I loved cooking when I was a kid, and it thrills me that my little friend shares my love of cooking.

It is also a great excuse to put Avery in an apron and chef hat. I'm DYING over the cuteness! 

Last week was the premiere of Season Four of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR on FOX!

After a nationwide search, 24 of the best junior home cooks (ages 8 to 13) in the country are competing in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen. The show is hosted by the award-winning Chef Gordon Ramsay. Chef Ramsay is joined by acclaimed chef Graham Elliot and renowned pastry chef Christina Tosi on the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR judging panel. They will coach, encourage and teach the kids new tricks of the trade during the competition.

MASTERCHEF JUNIOR on FOX is super fun to watch. I was totally blown away by the kids on the show. They are super creative and can cook better than most adult chefs! We can all get some inspiration from these talented kids!

In the first episode the kids made some amazing burgers and fun sides (I wanted to eat them all) and incredible desserts with marshmallows. In addition to the cooking, there was tons of fun on the show. There was even a Gordon Ramsay piñata and a marshmallow explosion!

Don't worry if you missed the first episode, you can catch it On Demand and on FOX Now:

Here is a quick promo for the upcoming season:

The junior chefs will face exciting challenges during the season, including a kid-only birthday party, a tag-team challenge, a cupcake frosting face-off and the fan-favorite pop-up restaurant. They will compete challenges until one talented kid is named America’s newest MASTERCHEF JUNIOR! They will take home the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR trophy and $100,000 grand prize.
WOW!!!  

Chef Avery has a few more years until she can compete on MASTERCHEF JUNIOR on FOX, but you can bet she will give everyone a run for their money when her time comes! 
(Her Mama would love for her to win that $100,000 prize too!)

Make sure to watch the all-new season of 
MASTERCHEF JUNIOR Fridays at 8/7c on FOX!

You can also follow the show on FacebookTwitterInstagramGoogle Plus and Tumblr.

  12. I like to take the kids out to the garden and pick some fresh produce and then cook something with it. For example, we might pick some peppers, tomatoes and onions and then make a home made pizza. Or some fresh zucchini and use the spiralizer to make a ‘pasta’ dish. It’s a great way to get kids to try something new.

  14. I love cooking recipes with my kids that are 6 ingredients or less, like Sloppy Joes & 3-Ingredient Peant Butter Cookies, but I also love cooking recipes that have been in the family so they learn how to make our family favorites! To avoid a disaster, I never let them measure over what we are preparing. I giev them a a paper plate & have them measure over it.

  22. No kids of my own, but when I'm at my friend's house her granddaughter helps in the kitchen. We put the veggie tray together and put the dip in the bowl.
    Thanks for the contest.

  25. Making their favorite foods is a great way to get kids involved in cooking. Whether it's frosting cookies or sprinkling cheese on pizza they are proud of what they have done.

  43. I love to cook with my kids. My teen is getting more confident and enjoys being in charge of the grill. My daughter has started being more involved, starting with baking. She is helping with some of her favorite, simple recipes and looking up dinner ideas online. She loves to stir whatever is cooking:)

  44. Since we school at home, I let my older kids each cook what they want for lunch.....it started out with just boiling water for noodles but now has evolved to making quesadillas in a skillet!! :)

  45. My daughter loves to "cook" in the kitchen... whether it's baking cookies or brownies or stirring the sugar for the sweet tea... she's a big helper. Her most recent favorite is handing me the red potatoes to chop up and then she puts them in the boiler.
