IT WAS A BUSY SUMMER

and I am so grateful to finally have a quiet September house. At the same time, I am stunned by the relentlessness of the meal prep. I have stopped counting up all of the school lunches I have made. And now that my kids have some sort of activity almost every day after school, I am trying to expand my one-pot-meal repertoire. Recipes coming.

Back in July, I recorded a Burnt Toast podcast with Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, co-founders of Food52. It is 23 minutes of us talking about children and food and cooking along with managing editor Kenzi Wilbur. Our kids even joined in for part of it. I was on top of my desk in Berkeley (no, really, sitting in straddle to reach the mic) and the rest of the crew was in a studio in New York City. Dash joined me on the desk towards the end (he is the one who very clearly states his hatred for anchovies). There was this moment (minute 18:27, in fact) when the kids started talking to each other and it felt like we were all sitting around the dinner table. I swear my heart just exploded.

If you feel like it, let me know in the comments below if you have any stories or tips or triumphs or frustrations relating to kids and cooking. I love the beautiful and the ugly and everything in between. So bring it on.

More soon about my book and various other projects. Lots going on. Can't wait to share.

xoxo
Phyllis

  1. the health department would shudder at the shenanigans that go on when my 4-yr-old gets in on the cooking. luckily we're the only ones endangered by her methods.

  4. i am the frustrating story of my parents. the entire time i lived in the house i didn't step one toe over the line of foods i wouldn't touch let alone taste. I whined at the dinner table almost daily. But then i started dating and cute boys started offering to take me to dinner (olive garden, ooh la la) and suddenly i want runny delicious eggs, artichoke hearts, and all the other things my parents all but attempted to shove down my throat. Sorry frustrated moms and dads, sometimes the only incentive for trying something new is infatuation.

  5. Dear Phyllis, I just love your work! You are a huge inspiration. I am a psychologist and mama of 25 and 22 year olds. Just did a blog post about food and kids. I'd love your thoughts on my somewhat controversial ideas. http://debspots.com/2015/09/17/pasta-caprese/

  6. Ha, the ketchup... I had a talking to about that also.
    I remember way back when, my in-laws would set a timer for their eight year old son.... he had to finish his mashed potatoes. Ugh!! It killed me to watch that.
    So true about reintroducing foods. You never know, they might love it one day.
    I loved your statement... join me in their way.

  12. This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures impotence, bareness, diseases such as HIV/AID E.T.C You can contact him via email at { Doctorokpamenspelltemple@yahoo.com } or visit his website http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com.
