I’m a mama to two boys, Fig and Cedar (and a sassy dachshund). I started cooking with my son, Fig, when he was 12 months old. As most mama’s know, looking occupied is the easiest and quickest way to have a toddler pulling at your pant legs in a desperate attempt to get into your arms. And nothing says ” hey i’m busy” than dicing onions. So in an attempt to actually finish a meal, I started giving my toddler little jobs around the kitchen and eventually cooking together became a part of our daily rhythm. This blog is a journey of culinary adventures with young folks. You’ll find nutritious simple plant-based recipes that Fig and I have developed together through much trial, heaps of error and the occasional culinary calamity.
We hope you enjoy,
Love Fig, Cedar, Mafalda and Kari (that’s me).
