Food/Restaurant News – Because Joel is now at a great age where he’s curious about food and able to try different foods, I’m taking advantage of this learning stage. Our baby/family blog will be changed to ‘What’s Cookin, Mama?,’ and will supplement my current food blog to specialize in kid friendly foods and foodie activities. I’m still in the process of redesigning the blog but hopefully it will be up within the next couple of weeks. In addition to this, I’ve also created a new social group by the same name to help encourage other moms to introduce foods to their children, regardless of age. So far we’ve got nearly 50 members! Within our social group, moms will be able to enjoy foodie activities with their children while helping children learn about food through colors, shapes, textures, numbers, etc. We’ve already got a few events planned so I’m anxious to meet with fellow moms where both Joel and I can make new friends in and out of the kitchen.
Although Joel is just about a year old, he has some cousins who are a bit older that love being in the kitchen with me. In my What’s Cookin, Mama blog, I’ll be sharing kid friendly cooking and baking activities and recipes for kids of all ages. Saturdays tend to be the day the cousins come over to play so we’re structuring kid friendly kitchen events where everyone will make lunch together, enjoy it and then have some play time. So stay tuned, especially if you have children! I know this new adventure will be fun, especially with Joel as my side kick!
