Little Chef’s Project + Giveaway


I’m excited to share that I was selected as a contributor to “The Little Chefs Project: A Collection of Kid-Friendly Tips, Tricks and Recipes for Fun in the Kitchen.” The Little Chefs Project is a collaborative book about cooking with kids.

Chef Boyardee and The Motherhood have teamed up with a collection of awesome bloggers/mothers/writers to create this one-of-a-kind e-book that encourages parents to bring the family into the kitchen and get cooking. There are a lot of great tips, tricks and recipes that are all designed to bring kids and parents together in the kitchen.

I contributed to Chapter 4 – Family Time

My Tips for bringing the family together into the kitchen

  1. Assign everyone a task to help with dinner preparation.
  2. Let kids pick out new recipes and make them together.

How do you bring your family together in the kitchen?

Over the next few weeks join The Motherhood for a series of live chats: The Little Chefs Project Cook-A-Longs
