Cooking with Dexter

Over the past several months I have really enjoyed reading a New York Times column named Cooking With Dexter, by Pete Wells. Because it fits in with the food/cook/amateur hunter theme of my blog, (squirrel kill count: 128) I'll mention it.

The column follows the culinary adventures of a sometimes clumsy cook (Mr. Wells) and his son, Dexter. Dexter is a 5 year old foodie obsessed with hoarding food and developing his own recipes among other things. The articles are full of satire and tidbits about Dexter's often ingenious cooking ideas and his quirky, 5 year old perspective of the food world. While it is mostly entertainment for me, the column always comes complete with recipes and good cooking ideas. So, if you're looking for a few laughs and maybe even some ideas for dinner, check it out.
