We all love an adorable cooking video where a cherub-faced toddler politely mixes ingredients with a “please” and “thank you” while making tiny little spills. This video is not that.
Two-year-old Cade and his mom Christy regularly post cooking videos on the @LittleChefCade Instagram profile where Cade helps dump the ingredients in the bowl -- and sneaks tastes by the fistful. I’ve never before seen a child who so urgently needs to scarf down an entire stick of butter.
For this recipe, special guest star “Nana” and Cade made cookies together. What Grandma needs to keep in check is the fact that Cade keeps lunging at the ingredients like a hungry jackal.
Did anyone cringe when the hand-mixer came out? Do they even feed this kid? I thought that child was going to take a chunk of Nana’s arm off when he was trying to snatch a raw egg out of the bowl. Those rolled oats never stood a chance.
We do have to give Cade extra points for sweetness when he handed his Nana a cookie, though. I thought he was going to do his best Cookie Monster impression for sure and eat them all.
Nana should have known what she was getting into. Cade has a history of trying to gobble down ingredients mid-recipe. Here’s a video of him making Rice Crispie treats. Watch as he tries to inhale an entire package of marshmallows through the plastic bag.
Hopefully, Cade will keep up the same joie de vivre where he grabs ingredients -- and life -- by the handful. If he plays his cards right, there might be room for a co-star on "Sesame Street."
