Ever since I can remember, my mother had my brothers and I helping her in the kitchen. Whether it was stirring, measuring, or reading the next step in a recipe, she always made sure to find jobs that we all could do. It is a gift that she gave to me and something I'm pleased to be able to do with my daughter, even at 2.5 years old! I love food... but REAL food. Not peel-and-microwave, just add water, only 100 calorie stuff... that's not food. I'm proud to admit that my daughter has never had a Happy Meal - ever! I hope to share here what REAL food is, how easy it is to cook, and how wonderful it can look and taste. I'm no expert in the kitchen, but I love to try new things and I love to share the results - good or bad!
