It’s our sixth week of the Kids’ Share! For those of you who are just tuning in, ChopChop Kids is taking part in a third season with Siena Farms to bring families together in the kitchen with the Siena Farms Kids’ Share. Kids get their very own vegetable share for 12 weeks in a special quarter-bushel Kids’ Share box.
We were excited to find out that Highlands Family Success Center (HFSC) in West Milford, NJ has taken on the #ChopChopCookingClub Challenge. The families are HFSC are doing one cooking challenge a month at Family Time. We’re excited to follow the progress of the class and see the new skills they are learning.
Who knew there were so many types of peppers! This week’s share was filled with all different shapes, sizes, and colors of peppers: Ripe Bell Peppers, Lunch Box Peppers, Shishito Peppers, and Jalapeno Peppers. Additionally, the share included Peter Wilcox Potatoes, Green Oakleaf Lettuce, and Garlic. This week’s surprise was a bag of fresh soil with a small pot and some basil seeds.
Kids Really Rock Festival: A Celebration of Music, Art, Community, and Kindness
A crowd of 7,000 people gathered at the Lawn on D for the fourth annual Kids Really Rock Festival, held last Saturday, September 24, in Boston, Massachusetts. I attended this event and soaked in the sunshine and good vibes all around.
Have you ever had any kind of allergy? Well today I'll be talking about my allergy and how to cook with an allergy. Lots of people have allergies when seasons change, but my allergy is a bit different. I have an allergy to gluten, which is an allergy to wheat. Wheat is in bread, bagels, cereal, and even in canned soup. You may have heard of gluten free, nut free, dairy free, etc. Those are all allergies! Cooking and living with an allergy challenging. Cooking gluten free is way different then cooking normally.
