Share Family Traditions – Join Our Little Chefs Cook-Along!

We’re part of The Little Chefs Project series on The Motherhood – and I would love to have you guys join us for our live Cook-Along event! Abby and I helped create the new Chef Boyardee eCookbook – which was an absolute blast. I mean, what kid doesn’t love Chef Boyardee, right? And now they’ve put together a collection of recipes featuring your favorites like Beefaroni, Mini Raviolis, or Spaghetti and Meatballs. They make it easy to create simple dinners that the whole family is going to love – check it out!!

The Little Chefs - cooking with kidsThis is Abby and I in the kitchen – She turned two in late July, and is becoming such a great little helper. We get to learn measurements as we fill up the cups and empty them out again. We talk about the colors of the different ingredients. We stir, we taste, we giggle, and we usually make a pretty darn big mess. But I absolutely adore it.

cooking in the kitchen with kids - Chef BoyardeeTo celebrate the launch of the eCookbook {get it here: The Little Chefs Project: A Collection of Kid-Friendly Tips, Tricks and Recipes for Fun in the Kitchen. We’re in the last chapter – Family Traditions!} These pictures above are from our photo shoot for the book, when Abby and I baked cookies together from one of my grandma’s recipes. About 10 years ago, one of my aunts put together a big cookbook filled with family recipes, and gave all us girls a copy. It’s one of my favorite gifts, ever. I love being able to make all of my childhood favorites – and so glad that they put them all together like this, so that I can share them with Abby too.

Make new Family Traditions with Chef Boyardee!!

The Little Chefs Project series consists of live chats called Cook-Alongs taking place every Thursday at 2 p.m. ET until November 15, and each Cook-Along covers a different topic around cooking with kids. Family Traditions is the final Cook-Along in the series and addresses how you can carry on existing family traditions (such as baking for the holidays) or create your own new traditions with your kids.

  • What: A virtual Cook-Along called Family Traditions, part of The Little Chefs Project series on The Motherhood.
  • When: Thursday, November 15, at 2 p.m. ET.  It will last 30 minutes.
  • Where: The Motherhood – here is the link to the page where the class will be held:

About the class: More than 85 years ago, Chef Hector Boiardi migrated to the United States and began sharing his delicious meals made with real quality ingredients – a tradition which is carried on today. For any holiday or occasion, or simply for the everyday, traditions are important to your family history. Whether you’re looking to pass your age-old family meal traditions to the next generation or create new ones, these moms have advice and stories to share.

To participate, just click the link above, log into The Motherhood using your member ID (if you don’t have one, it’s easy and free to sign up), and chat away in the text-based comments. We’ll also have a video feed running during the half-hour Cook-Along, so you’re welcome to show up simply to watch if you’d like! You’ll get to meet some of the other families from our chapter, and watch my recipe video too!

The Cook-Along is sponsored by Chef Boyardee, and it is hosted by The Motherhood.  You can visit Chef Boyardee online at or on Facebook at

I’ll be there with several other bloggers to co-host the class, and I hope you’ll join us!  The fabulous people who will be co-hosting with me are:
