1) C of Foodie Tots interviewed me about my cooking experiences with my girls. Thanks for the great post. And by the way, it's still great fun to cook with them. Above is a photo of Sharron making challah - Foodie Tots has one with Joanna and I wouldn't want my baby Princess to be jealous.
We're actually on to the next generation of chefs. Boaz will be two in January, but already his mummy has a plan for this Sunday. It will be the lighting of the first Hanukkah candle (and naturally lots of latkes for dinner) so she plans on making some sugar cookies in a variety of Hanukkah shapes - menorahs, dreidles and stars of David with Boaz. I'll let you know how that turns out.
2) Foodie Tots will also be hosting this week's Presto Pasta Night, so please send all your fantastic pasta dishes to her directly - foodietots (at) gmail (dot) comand a cc to me Ruth AT 4everykitchen DOT com
I haven't quite decided on which dish I'll be sharing, but in the meantime, here's a fun thing to do with your kids...make your own pasta.
Okay, true, Joanna is now all grown up, but it's still a fun afternoon, and Boaz (and everyone else, loves the results). Here are a couple of our creations -
Mushroom Ravioli in Cream Sauce (and even little hands can help out with the filling)Stained Glass Pappardelle is perfect for little kids (and not so little kids) They get to lay fresh herbs on long sheets of wide pasta that you then thread through the pasta maker again. It's very cool!
So what do you like to make with your kids?
