Coming Soon to the Food Network

Audrey has had an on-again/off-again obsession with watching YouTube videos of cooking shows.  She started out with Miss Betty's Kitchen and her Jezebel sauce and white-chocolate blondies, and then moved on to the Betty Crocker Kitchen at Howdini.com.

Not surprisingly, she started scripting lines from them and throwing around words like "serving" and "Splenda".  She also started making little culinary creations of her own...here's one that I'm sure you'll enjoy called "dip".





Audrey is kind of like the MacGyver of the kitchen in that she utilized a lot of found objects (=random food sitting out on our island) and turned them into something fabulous.  If I'm not mistaken, all of the food groups are represented...and as a bonus, you'll have minty fresh breath!

  1. She looks so cute and happy when she is holding the plate. Oh I love her!

    And I also love the, "It's great!" and then instant look down just like on the Today Show when the guests cooks up something you know tastes nasty but Matt Lauer has to play it off.

  3. Fabulous! What a cutie! I think the gum is a nice touch! :-)

  4. So nice of her to think to give us an ingredient that will freshen our breath!

  5. Is it bad that I totally smell my food like that even as an adult? I love, It's good! She does need her own show...make her earn her keep!

  6. I love when you post Audrey videos. MacGuyver used gum, you know.

  7. Gum Dip, yum yum yum!

  8. Reminds me of Rachel's trifle from that Friends episode. What's not to like? Peas? Good. Veggie chips? Good. Gum? It's great!

  9. Hey, if Sandra Lee could have her own "cooking" show, then Audrey certainly could!

  10. She is beautiful!
    My husband is a culinary McGyver too...he can make a dinner out of leftovers and bits of corrugated iron (or at least it seems so...) while I'd just be weeping on the kitchen floor looking for the number of our local take away.
    When Audrey gets her own cookery show I'll never miss it!

  11. So if she turns up missing anytime soon, just know that it is partially your fault for advertising her extreme cuteness. And no worries, I'm a trained professional.

  12. Wow that sounded a bit stalkerish of me, but truly her voice alone has healing powers. I may have to come back later to replay the video.

  13. You know what's almost as freaky as formerlyonlyamovie? My guy puts single chips on plates and puts them in the fridge for later. Must be something in that autistic gene that makes them want to put 1 or 2 chips on plates.

  14. Money making suggestion: Audrey's recipe book. I'd buy it.

  15. Lol, Georgia would love that recipe... gum and chips being the main parts of the "dip" of course!

  16. I was impressed with her table manners - picking up the fork to get the peas. My kids would have just reached in there with their fingers. And they would all love Audrey's recipe. Chips? Gum? Token vegetable to make Mom happy? AWESOME.

  17. Mixed foods! and she ate it?!?! Our autie family is impressed by skills such as these.

  18. Yay! I was wondering what I was going to bring when it's my turn to provide snacks at the Mothers of Preschoolers meeting on Tuesday ... "Dip" it is!

  19. @Mommyto2boys: Yeah, that "it's great" didn't sound too convincing.

    @BigDaddy: What is with the gum thing? Your friend @Laura is fine with it!

    @AMR: I knew you'd like this one...we gotta get her and Alex together!

    @Movie: She's yours. Seriously. This weekend?

    @Twain: She literally never uses utensils. Don't ask me why she chose to use a fork to eat one pea, but then uses her hands for soup.

    @Liz: She didn't really eat it...which is probably for the best! As with all great chefs, her joy is in the creating.

  20. When her cookbook comes out, can I have a signed copy!?

  21. And you certainly can never underestimate the importance of minty fresh breath.

  22. Name for the show: "Audrey's Almost Edibles."
    But I wouldn't pitch it to a "FOOD network" per se.

  23. This is the best cooking show I have ever seen, Audrey rocks :D Jen

  24. Hey, you have to love her ability to throw together a culinary delight from the leftover scraps surrounding her. :) She even unwrapped the gum - that is bonus points right there! Her presentation is awesome and I think with a little more practice she can take the show national!

  25. Will does that too. I use to find little piles of cut up veggies around. And just two days ago he cracked a lot of eggs, added oil, a banana and some spices. I hate it when he "cooks."

  26. This is So cute!

    She has inspired me to "cook" something.

  27. I would like to place my order. So cute! =)
