I have a short assistant who needs to stand on a chair to help me cook. She has a habit of stealing the ingredients for a snack, even if those ingredients are raw (kale, garlic, and onions are always a favorite). Tonight we're making chorizo and kale soup. Sometimes she chases me with a pair of tongs screaming, "I get you! I get you!" But she's always good company and hands me things to cut up when I ask her to. A great helper.
