Cooking With Kids in the Twin Cities

cooking classesI have a 10 year old daughter who–more than anything–loves cooking.  I, personally, am not a fantastic  teacher or even a so-so  teacher.

My girls in particular love to cook with their Aunt Ruhama and their Grandpa Kordatzky.  Unfortunately, both these willing chefs live in Deep Wisconsin (extreme south and extreme east).

So the fact that there are schools for chefs-in-the-making here in the Twin Cities makes me so incredibly happy.

 


Thanks to our sponsor The Kids Cooking School. Tiffany Cavegn has opened the perfect shop for kids to learn to cook.  With a spunky and knowledgeable teacher, any kid will learn how to feed their kids a 3 course meal.

Family Day Trip: National Eagle Center, Wabasha

We were blessed with gorgeous weather for a long weekend camping trip along scenic Highway 61. The first thing we did upon tumbling out of the camper in Wabasha, Minnesota, was spend a good fifteen minutes soaking up the sun along the Mississippi. It’s along these banks that majestic bald eagles winter and build nests to raise their young. You can learn all about these raptors – and get just about nose-to-beak with them – at the adjacent National Eagle Center. Read More

Twin Cities Special Needs ShortList

Special Needs

Families with Special Needs are our HEROES! We have always thought that. After attending AUSM’s Steps of Hope event in 2016, we knew that we needed to up our game to serve our heroes even better.

We decided to make this Special Needs ShortList as a launching point.  This guide is for families in the midst of crisis–or friends of those families– who need a place to start.  This is our first step, our first attempt.  Feedback and suggestions are very welcomed.


The Special Needs ShortList is sponsored by the Autism Society of Minnesota.

Paint Your Wagon

This past week, I had the privilege of chatting with our beloved local Ann Michels.  Not sure who I’m talking about?  That’s okay.  We are busy parents and are lucky to be able to watch a show without falling asleep halfway through it.

Ann Michels is a talented local actress who has performed in many different roles around the Twin Cities including The Guthrie Theatre, Children’s Theatre Company, Theater Latte Da and many others. Read More
