MasterChef Junior looks like a blast

masterchef-juniorThis weekend will be a lot of fun. I’m going to New York with my Mom and my Uncle Greg. Uncle Greg knows people in New York so he’s going to stay longer but he will be there on the train with us when we ride up.

We’re going to Times Square to the Sheraton Hotel for MasterChef Junior casting.

I love to cook. I think when I grow up I will be a chef and a writer and also run 3B. It really is all kind of connected.

To practice for the casting I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. It hasn’t all be fun. There was a lot to clean up from spilling cream on the floor and I also learned why it’s very important to keep your fingers away from the knife while cutting!

I made muffins with carrot puree and yogurt (they were moist and yummy), homemade pasta which I cut into thick noodles and paired with chicken and a mango cream sauce, I made an elbow pasta dish with Italian sausage and a homemade tomato sauce and I topped the weekend off with a crab dip that everyone loved! I learned it takes a long time to get the smell of crab off your hands.

I have my apron with me and the trip should be fun. It’s exciting to have been invited to casting by the producers there and I know no matter what happens it will be a good way to meet people and learn.
