Mon Petit Chou

   Today's post takes a slight departure from the culinary for just a minute to welcome my new Great Niece Ella to the world!  My favorite nephew Brian and his sweet wife Crystal welcomed their first baby, Ella, into our family on February 15th -- and she's already proving to be quite the little cutie.  I haven't seen her in person yet, but I am already smitten by her pictures - of course, I've included a few below so you can swoon along with me. 

     Congratulations to my brother Craig and sister-in-law Patti - they seem to be settling into Grandparenthood very smoothly.  I, of course, am much too young to be a "Great Aunt" - so I think Ella and I will have to strike a little agreement to just go with "Aunt Crystal". 

     Mon Petit Chou - this is a French term of endearment - literally "my little cabbage" - seems very appropriate for our new addition to the family.  One of my favorite things to do is cook with my nieces Amanda and Crystal - I'm sure we'll be bringing Ella into the fold soon - she'll look adorable in a little pink chef hat!
