A big hello to readers who saw my flyer at the Just Between Friends (JBF) sale this weekend. I picked up some summer stuff for my kiddos yesterday, and I swear my three-year-old woke up extra early this morning to put on one of her new outfits! The JBF sale is definitely a great resource for parents.
I hope that SeedtoSpoon will be another great resource for you. As I said on the flyer, my goal is helping moms cook healthy. Many of us take extra care while we’re pregnant to eat really well, but it’s all too easy to slip into bad habits over time.
As a working mom myself, I know the challenges of putting food on the table. But no matter how little time you have to put a meal together, no matter how cranky your kids seem to be at that 5 o’clock “witching hour,” no matter how picky their palates…you can still put together healthy food. I’m here to help, with kid-friendly tips and seasonal recipes.
A word about my background. I’m a professional food writer, published in The New York Times, The Denver Post and city magazines, and I went to cooking school in New York. This blog is a passion for me, born out of experiences feeding my own three kids (ages 8, 5 and 3). Unlike many other blogs, which are snarky and self-absorbed in their quest to be entertaining, this blog is about you. I’m trying to share what I’m doing in my own kitchen to help and inspire you in yours.
As part of a regular column I wrote for a city magazine here in Denver, it was my job to work with chefs and test their recipes to make sure they worked in a home kitchen. That’s one thing that distinguishes the recipes you’ll find on my blog with so many others. Everything on my blog is something I’ve made and fed to my own family, so you’ll benefit from my tinkerings to get the recipe just right.
