In 2010, I revealed a secret dream that I’ve had for a long time. Here’s the 19-second clip from a video audition I submitted to iVillage.com to become one of their iVoices:
In 2013, that dream has come true…I’m hosting a cooking show for iVillage! This has been months in the making, but reality set in today when the first episode went live. By reality, I mean nervousness, excitement and
what have I gotten myself into? disbelief.
My goal is not just to share recipes and menu ideas, but to show how kids can be involved in the cooking process. Whether it’s asking them for ideas or handing them an age-appropriate knife to chop veggies, I hope to inspire other parents to turn meal preparation into quality family time. Of course, things don’t always go smoothly, and I promise to leave in some of that, too.
On that note, check out “How To Make Homemade Tacos and Spanish Rice…With the Kids!”
Behind the scenes: My recipe for Spanish Rice is inspired by my mom. I’ve always tried to perfect her technique which is to just throw a little of this and that together, no measuring, and yet, it comes out perfect every time. How does she do that?! After much trial and error- seriously, I’ve been trying since college- I’ve finally figured out the exact measurements that turn out delicious Spanish rice every time.
