Food bloggers who cook with their kids

Does anyone know of a list/directory of parents who have food blogs where the kids are involved in the cooking? The release of my cookbook has unfortunately coincided with a badly broken arm which totally hosed my plan to spend the last few weeks doing research and carefully targeted offers of review copies. (and I told my publisher that I was writing those email messages, not them!) Three shattered bones later, I am in too much pain to do all that clicking and am trying to streamline the process.

Anyone know where the intersection of food and family lives online...?

(this is not an ad: book info in top post at my site...go there so we leave Sam's space adfree...)

Stefania at City Mama is a blogger I think would be a good person to review the book:

I cook with my son all the time. Not much of it makes it on my blog, but I love kid friendly recipes. We have a 'learning tower' to help him get up to the counter. he's almost three,and is starting to use a wooden knife.

I'd be more then happy to do a review and post a few articles with both of us cooking.

Hi,

I've never run across such a list, sorry. I can say Monkey Wrangler (stay-at-home father of 2 small children) cooks every day with his children and they make it online quite a bit.

I hope this helps!

I just started up a family food blog - feedingfive.blogspot.com. I haven't covered cooking with kids yet, but I'm sure it will come up.

We cook with our kids all the time, though I do not post photos of them. We also have given our boys pseudonyms to protect their privacy.

FJK said...

another thought -- have you checked out the mommy blog category?

the right demographic and also would be part of your target marketing audience

With your broken arm, you need a copy of "The One-Armed Cook" which is basically a book for new parents cooking with a baby on their hip....or while talking on the phone, having a glass of wine, or, in your case, a broken arm! www.theonearmedcook.com

I cook with my kid all the time and so do many of the people on my blogroll.

Joining in a bit late, but if you are still looking, have you thought about homeschooling blogs? I haven't come across any food blogs where posts regularly involve children cooking. On my own dessert blog, I've mentioned our son cooking a few times including when he baked bread, but it's not a regular feature. He does love to cook with us though.

Congratulations on the book! Must feel amazing.

My son loves to mess around in the kitchen but I only feature him in a few posts.

I'm also part of the gastrokid community. It might be what you are looking for.

I don't know of any directories of such blogs but will add mine to the list. http://norwitz.net/

I have a lot of pictures of my 3-year-old helping me cook and she is getting pretty good at it too (up to cutting vegetables with steak knives, learning basic recipes). A good stepstool is a must. The tag "photos-family" includes all the cooking pictures.

I also have a post about cooking with kids which is a review of a Next Food Network Star episode http://norwitz.net/blog/2008/07/08/the-next-food-network-star-7608/

I hope this helps!

lv are more on durability- louis vuitton wallets are both water proof and fire proof. louis vuitton wallet comes from the combination of materials that are used to create them - louis vuitton replica handbags canvas for waterproofing and PVC for fireproofing. That's not a quality you'll find in many goods, let alone bags.
