Some of my family's best conversations happen in the kitchen
while we're busy stirring pots of soup, kneading bread dough
and chopping onions. All of us live in a fast-paced world
where everyone orders out so much, but the process of cooking
is as important as the meal itself. That's why more often
than not, I don't cook FOR my children, but WITH them. When
my children were very young, I would help them measure, pour
and stir while they would share the delights and disappointments
their expanding worlds with me. Now that they're 21, 17 and
14, cooking together still provides a bridge between my worlds
and theirs. With the kitchen as the backdrop, we more easily
share stories and memories, solve problems and make plans.
By cooking and eating together as a family, not only do you
enjoy a better meal, but it bonds your family together - and
your kids learn manners naturally! Through preparing and sharing
our family food together over the years, our family history
and traditions have been passed on naturally to my children.
Now, along with our love, they take some favorite recipes,
warm memories and enduring family traditions with them as
they venture further and further out into the world.
are recipes that my children, even when very young, have always

ingredients, mix and stir -- either with my help or, as they
grew, on their own. Their interest and abilities in the kitchen
grew along with them.
