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 cook or  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 cook a  3-course meal.

Twin Cities Family Wellness Guide sponsored by Blooma

Family wellness is more than just another New Year’s Resolution.  While the new year spurs thoughts of big changes in our fitness habits or our nutrition, we want to encourage you to think beyond losing that extra 15 pounds.  We want you to consider your health in all areas of your life including mental health, physical health, and relation health.

Family Wellness Guide Blooma

Blooma has partnered with us to bring you this Twin Cities Family Wellness Guide. Together we want to help your family strive for wellness.  And Family Wellness can be fun like yoga classes for kids and mama support groups and shopping together at the Farmer’s Market.

10 Things for Kids: Pinwheel Play in Chanhassen

Pinwheel PlayThere’s a new play space in town! Located off of Highway 5 in Chanhassen, Pinwheel Play is an incredibly fun modern destination.

Pinwheel Play let us check out their space for free.  All opinions are mine.

Lisa Perkins Smith, with her husband Bryon, opened Pinwheel Play because they couldn’t find a play space that fit their needs.  They wanted a place that was clean, welcoming and catered to many types of open-ended play for the younger set.

It was hard to whittle this list down to 10 things; I was very impressed with this well-planned space.

Lynn’s Cake and Candy Supply, Monster Bash Sponsor

Lynn’s Cake & Candy Supplies has been open for over 30 years. When the current owner, Lynn, acquired the business, she ran it from inside her home. Holding business hours in your home can be difficult, and soon it was time to move. The store has been in 4 different locations since the decision to move. Currently, Lynn’s is located at the corner of University Avenue and Mississippi in Fridley, Minnesota. It’s approximately a mile and a half north of 694.
