Quinoa... Keen-wah... Quinn-oh-a... However you like to say it, these Quinoa Snack Bites are a delicious way to eat the super food. Quinoa is a complete protein and is packed with nutrients, so no wonder that it's become trendy in the last few years.

P is for Peas: Minty Pea Gazpacho

Pea soup isn't just for warming up after a snowball fight- it has a summer companion too! There is a minty pea Gazpacho that one of NYC's midtown lunch spots serves every summer- it's one of the things I start to crave every spring! I wanted to see if I could make it myself, and I could! It's super refreshing, colorful, and delish. And it uses frozen peas, so no need to wait for the verrry slim fresh English Pea season. Yay!

Learning through cooking: Problem-Solving

Learning through cooking: Problem-Solving

Learning through Cooking: Problem Solving. While problem-solving skills are not taught directly in the classroom, they are part of everyday life building skills. Again, it is important to provide children real world examples and some rationale behind their thinking from cognitive, developmental and culinary arts perspectives. Food preparation is an opportunity to apply problem-solving concepts to real-life situations. This skill in the kitchen is a necessity when it comes to working with fewer ingredients, having limited availability of food sources or even restricted time due to everyday life challenges.
