My son and I making homemade sourdough pasta.
This batch we rolled too thin… oops!
But we sure had fun testing out the pasta roller!

Today I’m a guest at The Nourishing Home. Kelly invited me to talk about our new eBook, Real Food Kids. (The Real Food Kids eBook combines all the print materials of the online class in a stand-alone eBook.)

I’m touched that Kelly considers our eBook “a foundational resource for families who want to experience the joy and nourishment that comes from learning to work together as a team in the kitchen!”

I really think, so, too, and I can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Jami from and Melissa the Dyno-Mom, my co-authors.

Jami coined the slogan of Real Food Kids — “Everyone eats, everyone cooks!”

The idea: if you’re eating, you should be cooking, too! When kids cooks alongside Mom (or Dad), this is quality time together, and the kids get so proficient at the real food cooking tasks that they’re more likely to enter adulthood still cooking away for their own families.

Want to hear more of my thoughts about the book, how it came to be, what it teaches, and more? Click here to see my answers to Kelly’s thought-provoking questions:

  • You’ve put together an amazingly thorough resource for families — tell us why you and your co-authors decided to create this eBook?
  • How can teaching kids to cook help them to eat a wider variety of healthy foods?
  • How has putting together this extensive eBook helped you personally when it comes to your time in the kitchen with your family?
  • What are your thoughts on how cooking together can help to build healthy eating habits and healthy families?


My son makes a tender and juicy grass-fed steak. He’s a pro, no doubt about it!

    I love this idea! When I was a kid, I remember the amazing memories of cooking in the kitchen with my parents. We made pasta once and it was such a fun experience. I hope more people do things like this with their kids – it teaches them so much more than how to cook food. I know when my husband and I have children, they will be little kitchen helpers too! :D

      Katie — How wonderful you have those memories. I have lots of memories cooking with my parents, too. My parents had a bakery for a time, too, and they made authentic pocket bread. That whole experience was amazing.

      God bless you and your husband and your future little ones. :)

    I would like to buy this book at the discounted price but the links take me to the page where the price is $14.95. Is there a different link or coupon code that I could use?
