Recipes for Your Junior Head Chef: A Recipe Round-Up

Check out Recipes for Your Junior Head Chef and You

by Noelani at Mode

 

Cooking with your junior chef is a great family activity.  It builds confidence in the kitchen, promotes healthy snacking, and even teaches a little measuring, math and patience (one of the hardest skills for those kids to master).

Start with some basic recipes, think s'mores or fruit kebabs, that will be fun and then build up to some more complicated fare like grilled cheese pizza and yogurt bread. Delicious for young and old and a set of skills that will truly last a lifetime.

You never know, you might just catch a break in the kitchen!

Work out gear. Made chic. Welcome to AV-RA Performance, the latest line of simple, well crafted goods from desginer Avra Myers, designer at A Ruby. 

Hello. Can you hear that?

These clothes speak to me. I can wear them to the gym. I can wear them after the gym to run errands. They are sleek, well made, and well designed. 

As a newish mom to a bouncing baby boy and a 2.5 year old I NEED comfort that doesn't sacrifice style. There is only so much Lulu you can get away with;)

WARNING: Once you make your own ricotta, and taste the delicious results, there is simply no going back.  

It is delightfully easy for a home cook of any level and worth every ounce of that minimal effort. From there, options abound. There are the usual hits: pizza, calzone, tiramisu, and the decadent.....breakfast with honey and fruit, light as air lemon ricotta pancakes, and even quick breads spiced with orange.

Here's some more of my own creations.....
