You guys are all aware of how much my daughter and I love to cook. Well you also may know already that KK loves to cook on her own as well. She has definitely been spreading her wings in the kitchen lately and I absolutely LOVE it!

Ever since she was a little girl she has always loved following me i the kitchen and being my shadow. I think KK partly loves to cook because she loves the ability to be creative and think outside the box. She likes to try and put her own spin on recipes and loves to watch. We especially love to watch other kids cooking on television, like Rachael Ray vs Guy Fieri Kids Cooking Contest and of course Masterchef Junior.

A couple of weeks ago I asked KK if she wanted to enter into Uncle Ben’s Bens Beginners Cooking Contest this year. This contest is a National Contest that empowers and encourages families cooking together and making healthier choices. The contest has received hundreds of entries from families nationwide.


Of course the minute I mentioned it she absolutely squealed and started jumping up and down saying yes she wanted to enter again. Last year, their first year hosting the contest, she had entered and loved the experience.

FOX 35 News Orlando

This year we kicked off the voting process by being featured on FOX35 News Good Day Orlando, which for KK was so cool. She was so nervous and giddy but did an awesome job and I was son proud of her.

Next she was also featured in the Orlando Sentinel talking about the contest and informing people on how to vote.

You see the only way to win is to vote. You can vote once a day, every day, every 24 hours. If selected as a grand prize winner, KK could win $15,000 cash and also receive a $30,000 cafeteria makeover for her school, Timber Lakes Elementary. Plus, two members of the family would also appear on the Rachael Ray Show. Pretty cool stuff huh!
