At first tasting, the Step Stool Chef shared that the salmon was a little too bitter.  When I tried it… he was right!  So he added a bit more brown sugar on the top while it was still warm.  The sugar melted on top and added just the right flavor to take away the bitterness.|Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze | VoilaHe was a lot happier with how it turned out and so was I! It’s so important to encourage your little chefs to taste their creations to make sure it tastes the way that will make them happy.  Because as you know, if they’re happy… you’re happy too.
