Baking shows are always my favorite cooking shows to watch. Probably because I can cook, but I can't bake. Baking takes so much precision. It also blows my mind how talented some of these bakers are. What's even more impressive is watching creative young minds baking.

Food Networks, "Kid's Baking Challenge" kicked off last week and we have our very own Michigander competing for $25K! Nemo Tsai is in 6th grade at Forsythe Middle School in Ann Arbor. Nemo has been working at his family's Japanese restaurant, Godaiko, since he can remember.

“I started working at the restaurant when I was seven, but before that I was working at the Asian market next door. My favorite thing to make is cake. Whenever I get a chance to slip bacon into my baking, I do because I love it. My signature cake is a buttermilk candy bacon cake.”

If you missed last weeks episode you still have time to catch up before the new one airs tonight. There will be new episodes every Monday night now through February 15th.

Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman will be hosting the 9th season of the "Kid's Baking Challenge". It's a 10-week competition where the contestants will compete in multiple baking challenges. This is the first season where the contestants parents will be allowed to observe backstage.

Almost half of us think our cooking skills improved in 2020. Some of us even think that we're ready to compete on our favorite cooking channels. I don't know about you, but I am not one of those people. I'm going to need way more than a year to work on my cooking skills to even consider the idea.
