When Alexandra Carmichael began cooking with her daughters as part of home schooling, she was pleased that Megan, 4 1/2, and Samantha, 7 1/2, turned out to be enthusiastic cooks. And I’m gratified that they are using recipes from this blog as one of their main inspirations. Alexandra also draws from her favorite cookbook, Cynthia Lair’s “Feeding the Whole Family” and from Lair’s website, Cookus Interruptus, which features recipes and over 100 often amusing cooking videos. They’ve tackled recipes for white bean and mushroom minestrone, cranberry walnut muffins and tempeh stroganoff, among lots of others. To see more photos of what this threesome is up to, check out Alexandra’s blog. You’ll also see her comments on a variety of challenges life poses. Well worth a look.
