Are you wondering what to make for dinner tonight? Would you like recommendations for cookbooks filled with meals your family will actually eat? Not sure what to do with the celery root that arrived in your CSA box? Would you like to learn to be a more confident cook?
And do all of this without gluten?
Were here to help.
My husband Danny and I are happy and honored to be starting a new Family Kitchen blog here at Babble. We spend much of our time as a family in the kitchen. Our daughter chops apples with her plastic knife while sharing stories about her day. My husband is browning beef for a stew with potatoes and carrots. Im making a parsnip cake with walnuts, coconut, and golden raisins for dessert. Theres music playing. Were laughing. Soon, it will be time for dinner.
Making time for meals made from scratch is hard enough in this overly busy culture. But making meals when you have found out that you, or one of your kids, can no longer can eat gluten can be daunting. We want to show you that its easier than you think.
Its easy to put TV dinners in the microwave or get takeout again after soccer practice. Theres nothing wrong with this occasionally. We dont cook every meal we eat. Just most of them. Sure, we can feed ourselves with a quick dinner, but for us, mealtime is about more than calories and taste.
When we cook, we slow down. We can work together. Maybe we cut kale out of our garden and saut it in a pan with olive oil and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Add poached eggs and theres dinner. Maybe we cook up a big pot of beans on a Sunday and use them all week long, in pumpkin enchiladas with corn tortillas or a minestrone soup with collard greens and gluten-free pasta. We make a big pot of brown rice or quinoa in the rice cooker, freeze it in 2-cup portions, and have the makings for a healthy dinner within minutes.
Danny and I dont have all the answers here. But we love what we do. And we both feel that spending time with something that can bring people joy in the belly? Its a pretty fine way to enjoy our time together.
So well be bringing you recipes approved by our 4-year-old, Lucy. Well share a cookbook recommendation with you each week. (Probably there will be giveaways, too.) Well talk about school lunches, cooking tips, time-saving techniques, ingredients worth discovering, and much more. Well be making you cooking videos as well as writing here, five days a week.
