Celebrate Kids Eat Right Month with our Kids In the Kitchen Series! Teach your kids to be #kitchenkids!

Kitchen Kids Collaboration

Here’s what you may or may not know about me, I love kids. I do, in fact, I wish I was one. I totally agree with that saying that “youth is wasted on the young.” Oh to go back and play with Barbies all day or run barefoot through the grass at dusk, trying to catch fireflies in a jar. Sounds pretty perfect, right? Well, I know I can’t go back, but that’s ok, because what I can do is help make a difference for our kids. Because besides loving kids, I love food. And that leads me to this year’s August celebration of Kids in the Kitchen 2017! I also like to think of it as the “Kitchen Kids Collaboration.”  A true celebration of kids in the kitchen – teaching them the basic life skill of cooking – so that they can become “kitchen kids.” And to help me, I’ve enlisted the skills and smarts of some pretty cool people, including America’s Test Kitchen!

Busy Mom Wardrobe Staples - Because you’re a mom, but sometimes you need to be YOU! @cookinRD | sarahaasrdn.com

Busy Mom Wardrobe Staples

Yes, I know, my blog is typically not about fashion. In fact for those of you that know me well, you know that I choose to forgo makeup and always wear comfy (read stretchy workout) clothes.  The reason? Because #1 I’m lazy and #2 I feel most happy when I am COMFORTABLE. But sometimes, I need help, because sometimes, I should dress and look like a grown-up. So, like any smart woman, I asked someone else for help, enter Brittany Hinrichs.
