This week we are featuring 5 healthy lunches for kid chefs and their parents to make together. The best part: they aren’t all sandwiches! Many of them are rolls, or "sandwich cousins" as we like to call them. We are also super excited for spring to finally arrive so we went for maximum color in these lunches. (And as you might know, "eating the rainbow" is a great way to make sure your kiddos get lots of different types of nutrients.) Yum!
With Father’s Day around the corner and temperatures soaring into the 90s in NYC, we thought it would be perfect timing to make fruit ice pops, for your pops! If your dad loves food, these 4 ingredient ice pops will be an excellent way to say “thanks Dad, stay cool.” You can make them now to prepare for Father's Day or make them the morning of, but remember fruit ice pops need to freeze for several hours. And if mango isn’t your dad’s thing, you can easily swap in a different fruit. Happy Father's Day!
Make your own salad dressings are really fun to make for kid chefs. What could be more delightful than putting something in a jar and shaking as hard as you can? It can also be a fun science lesson: what is an emulsion? Why don't oil and vinegar like each other? And since you can make them so quickly, even the littlest chefs have the patience for these recipes.
Thank you all so much for your AMAZING support over the past week. After just 36 hours, we hit our goal of $10,000 in pledges to Nomster Chef. And it hasn't stopped yet. Currently, we are 114% funded, thanks to the help of 191 backers. Check out the celebratory Facebook Live we made. Warning: Confetti and overwhelming joy involved.
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!
