My 9 year-old niece, Mariah, shares my love for cooking. She's into making salads. At first she would use loads of salad dressing, adding a glob with every ingredient she put in the bowl. This led to some soupy salads. In time, she has refined her skill and is actually quite good at putting together a side salad for dinner.
She was at Grandpa's and Grandma's recently and made a salad, only this time she was all about the presentation. It was her own little art project and she showed it off proudly. I decided to photograph it for her, like I do my own recipes every week. She was totally geeked-out that Uncle Justin was gonna take a picture of her creation. I was happy to do it ... And here is Mariah's salad.
