As a mom, I cook a lot for my family and I find that cooking meals with my boys helps to grow our family bond. Not only does it grow the family bond, but it also gets them more interested in the foods they’re eating and gives them a sense of accomplishment. I recently had the opportunity to contribute to Chapter 5 of an e-book hosted by Chef Boyardee and The Motherhood. It was a lot of fun!
Tomorrow will be some more fun with a cook-along (live chat) and we’ll be focusing on Fun with Flavors. The cook-along will be tomorrow, Thursday, November 8, at 2 p.m. ET (1 p.m. CT / 11 a.m. PT).

WHAT: A virtual Cook-Along called Fun with Flavors, part of The Little Chefs Project series on The Motherhood.
The Little Chefs Project series consists of live chats called Cook-Alongs taking place every Thursday at 2 p.m. ET until November 15th, and each Cook-Along covers a different topic around cooking with kids. Fun with Flavors addresses how you can successfully introdue kids to new foods and encourage them to try anything from unfamiliar vegetables to new spices.
WHEN: Thursday, November 8, at 2 p.m. ET. It will last 30 minutes.
WHERE: The Motherhood – here is the link to the page where the class will be held HERE
About the class: Have picky eaters? Try creating a new, quick and easy recipe WITH them! Introduce them to fun new flavors, like dips and spices, and encourage them to help you pick ingredients and create meals. Little Chefs are more likely to eat food they helped you cook! For more tips and tricks, join us in this fun and informative Cook-Along.

We’ll also have a video feed running during the half-hour Cook-Along, so you’re welcome to show up simply to watch if you’d like!
