What's Cooking at 10 Garden Street - A delightful cookbook for kids that also tells a story!
As a child growing up, I was privileged enough to be raised by a village.  My mother was intentional about raising me among diverse groups of people.  This also meant that I was exposed to diverse foods.  To this day, a good dal or pancit is comfort food to me.  I learned from an early ...

Put it on a skewer! A lunch box tip to try
Ah...packing school lunches. It always seems so novel and, dare I say it, exciting in September, but come January...perhaps not so much.

A Fun First Birthday Cake (and it is sugar free!)

BIRTHDAY PARTIES
Cooking for a big group of people
Tamar's birthday was a few weeks ago. Because his birthday is so close after the Christmas and New Year celebrations, we don't always know if we feel like celebrating with even more food and drinks.

Little Tables -- Breakfasts from around the World
According to this article, Dutch children enjoy one of the happiest childhoods in the world, and one of the reasons given for this is the fact that many of them start their morning with 'hagelslag' (chocolate sprinkles) on their bread.
