There's a budding chef in town and his charming personality is proving to be a recipe for success.

Roman Belville is a natural in the kitchen and in front of the camera. He's also two-years-old.

Roman's mother Ayla Belville is a stay-at-home mom from South Bend Indiana who has her own channel on YouTube. Her channel recently saw a huge spike after featuring her son in a video.

According to Today, the tyke with taste was always fascinated by watching his mom whip up fantastic creations in the kitchen. Thus began his culinary training.

Roman always wanted to be held while she was cooking undoubtedly so he could get close enough to the action.

When he became old enough, Ayla enlisted her son's help by chopping up ingredients with child-safe utensils, of course.

Because Ayla frequently blogs, Roman was always comfortable in front of the camera.

So Ayla and her husband Brandon decided to feature their son in his very first cooking show in which the toddler helped bake a cake.

"It was raining outside, but he didn't want to come inside," Ayla told the South Bend Tribune.

"So rather than fuss with him, I decided to give him something to do that would distract him."

After posting the video in August, Roman melted hearts with thousands of views.


I'm officially obsessed with Roman, the 2-year-old chef. ADORABLE OVERLOAD! Today's menu: pizza! https://youtu.be/6ycGBZDq1Eo via @YouTube twitter.com

"I can't even tell you how much Roman makes me happy!!!!!!!! He is freakin adorable!!! Total JOY watching him cook!! He speaks so well for his age and is so cute did I say he's cute?!," wrote subscriber 'Kamrin The Kapricorn AsMr.'

"I will never tire from watching him cook so please, please, more Roman cooking and baking please!!!!! Love you for making such an adorable little guy too!! Love and hugs."


Roman gained some admirers - about 36,000 of them so far. Ayla's humble hobby-centric channel had spiked from 135 subscribers.


















Even kids found him fun to watch.





Alya posted a followup video featuring the 24-month-old donning a red apron with his name on it and baking a pizza in an episode called, "Roman's Cooking Corner."

Because her channel reached monetizing status, Ayla and Brandon are considering allocating any funds that come their way via ad placements on the videos toward Roman's college fund.

But they're being cautious about featuring him in too many episodes on the channel for fear of exploiting Roman's childhood.

"Our goal isn't to make money," she said. "We'll do it as long as he's having fun and it's bringing people some happiness."

Sounds like a tasteful plan.

When you're working with kids, you never know what you're going to be dealing with on a daily basis. Are you going to have the delicate sweethearts, opening their hearts to learn?

Or are you going to be dealing with a sinister group of bee wranglers, who have suddenly set up a black market bee ring througout the school?

Yes. That's a real thing that happened.

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
