With the holidays comes extra time in the kitchen cooking with the kiddos. Whether it’s baking up a batch of Christmas cookies or throwing together a quick dinner, they cold weather makes them more likely to gather in the kitchen and want to lend a hand. This week, we tried out our first batch of […]
It’s been a while since our last Kid’s Cook Monday post. With the end of summer, a little bit of traveling, and some crazy cold that kept me on the couch for a week, I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen. I woke up feeling better this morning, so I decided to go with […]
This morning was a special one. Joe’s first day of preschool. He woke up early and helped me make some pancakes. We used the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix, and added some cinnamon and a splash of vanilla. Joe cracked the eggs and gave everything a good stir with the whisk. Leila helped me […]
Today is my mom’s birthday. We celebrated last night with a family dinner at our house. When I started planning the menu, I knew that my dad was grilling steaks and I would be in charge of the rest. Based on my Bountiful Basket haul, I decided to make roasted tomatillo guacamole and crispy roasted […]
We haven’t been spending as much time in the kitchen lately, mostly because we have been spending so much time at the baseball field. The kids and I usually eat a small dinner then take snacks to the game. The Arizona League games are played mostly on back fields with no music or snack bars, […]
I hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day! The kids and I started off our celebration by letting Daddy sleep in and making him eggs in a frame for breakfast. Lately, every time I start to cook something, these kids are pulling up a chair asking to help. I love it every time […]
With such a huge pile of apples from our Agritopia picking on Saturday, Joe and I couldn’t stop talking about apple pie. When it got right down to it though, I just didn’t feel like making pie crust. So we made an apple crisp instead. We used a recipe from one of my favorite-titled food […]
Last week, Anne from fANNEtastic food posted a recipe for Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Granola Bars. I saw them and immediately knew that Joe and I should get busy whipping up a batch. As we gathered the ingredients, Joe had to give them each a taste to make sure they were ok. He decided that he […]
Late Saturday morning, after picking up our Bountiful Basket and jumping into the pool for swimming lessons, the kids and I headed over to Agritopia for their u-pick event. Agritopia is a community centered around a working urban farm. We drive by it almost every day and even walk along the paths between the community […]
So far on my posts for The Kids Cook Monday, I have let Joe have most of the cooking fun. Lately however, Leila has been more vocal in asking to help in the kitchen. “Mommy, I do it!” Ah, the lovely age of two where she wants to do everything herself. Last night, I was […]
