Diva Foodies: We heard that you bake too. What is your favorite recipe and why?
Kid Chef Alexa: My favorite recipe is Tres Leches because it is savory and very delicious to eat.
Diva Foodies: Kid Chef Alexa, Tres Leches is one of my very favorites too. My thoughts are yours are way far better than my attempts! Your mom writes a great food blog Empanda Fork. Do you ever help her out with ideas for posts?
Kid Chef Alexa: My mom has had food bloggers that have used her kitchen utensil that she invented called Empanada Fork. It is their personal opinion on food posted. But, I do help make empanadas in my house.
Diva Foodies: What is your favorite food to eat?
Kid Chef Alexa: My favorite food is white rice with black beans and chicken.
Diva Foodies: What’s your favorite kitchen tool and why?
Kid Chef Alexa: My favorite kitchen tool is a big spoon because in cooking or baking there is a lot of mixing involved. So, a spoon works the best to put together a delicious meal.

Kid Chef Alexa: My favorite show is called “Kids Baking Championship” (Food Network) because I get to see kids in the kitchen baking and that inspires me to do the same.
