Cooking by Numbers


Cooking and eating together are some of the best family memories to create for your children. I remember my dad teaching me the family meatball recipe and each time I would get to do a little more until I was able to make them on my own. And, I can make some really awesome mashed potatoes because of my mom. Now that I am a parent, I have my staple recipes – those go-to family meals that I use over and over again. Well, I am kind of bored. Also, I’d like my kids to eat a wider variety of foods. The problem is, if I put a plate of steamed broccoli out on the table………..they aren’t going for it. They just don’t like it and yes, it’s a bit plain.

I went to Turnip the Beet and cried for help!  They have experience working with kids in their kitchens and know what they like. Together, we are bringing you Cooking by Numbers.  Really short, really simple ways to mix up what and how you are cooking to bring your family 1,2,3,4+ delicious new things to try.
