Thank you to Dawn and Michelle for inviting me to stay and have a bite of Esme’s wonderful luau birthday feast. John and Dawn prepared the most yummy pulled pork, served on Mandy’s homemade potato rolls, and guests contributed super delicious accompaniments, including the best bean salad, homemade, crunchy coleslaw, and Nicole Duckworth’s to-die-for death-by-chocolate cake.

Don’t Yuck on My Yum’: A Mantra for the Table, and Beyond

Posted on: November 8th, 2013 by John

To make dinner as nag-free as we can, my family follows few rules at our table. But one rule I insist upon is something I learned from a fourth grader as part of the Family Dinner Project’s lunch mentors program with the Lynn, Massachusetts Public Schools.

Don’t Yuck on my Yum.

If You Let Them Cook It, They Will Come

posted by Elijah and John

One way we try to inspire our six- and three-year-old kids to spend time at dinner is by letting them make it.  I cook at an island in my kitchen where the kids can sit and cook with me.  The trick is to find things appropriate for them to do.  That challenge inspired us to create this series called “Cooking with a Six-Year-Old,” though the age is not important – the theory holds true for any age.

Here is the first installment starring my son, Elijah, making hummus.  Please write to him to ask questions, tell him what you think or let him know if you changed anything to make the recipe better – he would love hearing from you!
