Zucchini Muffins–our most requested recipe!

These delicious, healthy  muffins are hands-down our most requested recipe—they’re a regular on rotation at our cooking classes, and when I make them at home, I always get requests for the recipe.  And it’s for good reasons: They’re vegan (egg and dairy free) and nut-free, which makes them a perfect snack to bring for kids with allergies, […]

Welcome to the season of gifting, also known as the season of “What the heck do I give my kid’s teachers?” Even more complicated is that most kids in daycare or preschool have like 10 teachers in their classroom (damn you, excellent teacher-studio ratio!) so buying gifts for every.single.one-of-em can add up to another […]

Finger foods are your baby’s first step in the transition to table food—and let’s face it: Without the need to spoon feed, you now have two hands free during meal time (score!).
