Kids in the Kitchen 2018

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Yes, I know it’s not Christmas, but it sure feels like it! Why? Because August is Kids Eat Right Month! A month-long celebration of teaching kids the importance of food and nutrition. And this year, it’s all about the cooking! Oh, who am I kidding, it’s ALWAYS about the cooking! I’m on a big time mission to help get kids in the kitchen and I’ve got a serious A-team list of colleagues who’ve got the same goal! So, this month we’re celebrating #kidsinthekitchen.

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!

Perfect Mom? Don’t Worry, I’m Not Either!

Guess what, I am not a perfect mom. Nope, never have been, never will be. And here’s the irony in that – I remember countless prayers during my struggle with infertility that included this, “I promise I will be an awesome mom, totally amazingly awesome.” I guess I felt that if I promised to be awesome, it might convince the Powers That Be, to say, “oh, ok, that’s all you needed to say Sara.” So here I am, almost 4 years later, blessed with an awesome little lady, and totally not living up to my promises to be “totally amazingly awesome.”
