A Bit About This Blog

First off, I'd like to say hello and welcome to my new blog! I'm looking forward to sharing and learning new things about cooking, green-living, and parenting.

This blog is focused on kid cuisine. Just Take Two Bites was a phrase I heard regularly as a child from my parents and grandparents when I was reluctant to try a new food. I have since become a very good eater, because I was willing to try new things as I was growing up. I am more likely to try something new and different because I was asked to try new things when I was growing up. Now, as a mom to two boys, one of whom is a picky pre-schooler, I am always searching for tips and tricks to get him to eat healthy, nutritious foods. I've done a lot of research and tested many recipes, and I've figured out a few ways to get him to eat new meals. So, look forward to many ideas to get your kids to eat!

I am also a very frugal mom. I love saving money. I'll be writing about many money-saving ideas that will allow you to cook and entertain your family for less money.

Another passion of mine is cooking from scratch. I do not like using processed ingredients in my cooking. I make my own bread dough, spaghetti and marinara sauce, macaroni and cheese, and more. If I can make it myself, I will. This is a great way to save money and keep preservatives and other additives out of my home. I can certainly not say that I never use a processed ingredient, but it is very rare. My goal is to keep my family healthy and happy, and my grocery budget under control.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I look forward to sharing ideas, and I am anxious to hear your feedback and comments as well.
