I am a foodie. I like to talk about it, cook it, bake it, and eat it. I don't like to clean it up.
I also like to cook and bake with my kids, and talk and learn about children's nutrition and fun ways to get them to eat healthy.
I believe allowing the kids in the kitchen with you creates a valuable experience, not just for them, but also for you. I started to jot down points to support this thought, and went off searching for research to validate my belief that having kids in the kitchen is a good thing.
Then I came across an article that had everyting I wanted to say, already said!
So, as I am not one to reinvent the wheel, I will refer you to this article.
And, with all of that in mind, I have an idea.
The Plan: Every Sunday I will post a blog about one or both of the kids and I as we create something in the kitchen. The recipes will come from magazine articles, kids cookbooks, family recipes, etc and will definitely be "kid friendly". If on some Sundays I can't post an actual recipe of something we have created, then I plan to post a kid friendly cookbook, or some fun food facts, food related craft ideas, or something else related to kids and food.
That's the plan...we'll see how it goes!

This is my place to share what's up with us, and the place where I sometimes need to pour my heart out about the not so sunshiney moments. This is my happy place.
