As a working mom, it seems there's never enough quality time with my kids. Out of a desire to make some intentional moments with my daughter, Tessa, I was on the search for something we could do together. Moments where conversations start and we learn more about each other. Like most of us, more than anything, I want my daughter to grow up to be an amazing person, to be kind and help others, and to find ways she can impact the world. Together, we set out to create a company that would do just that - inspire fun, creative, learning moments between us, while helping others. We found a way to do that through our love for cooking and food.
For us, food is something more than just ingredients; it’s an art. Something we get to choose based on our mood or our taste buds. For some, it's just a way to survive. For others, it's not "what will we eat today," but "will we eat today?" There are so many areas where extreme poverty and the simple need for nourishment is a daily fight. Our goal is to make a difference and change this for as many as we can.
I want Tessa to learn how to give, how to be generous with her time, talents and money. That's why a portion of every sale will go to change the life of a child in poverty. This might be in our own community or around the globe. To inspire others, we have an entire page devoted to getting kids involved in "Cooking For A Cause." Feel free to check it out and let us know what you think. Then send us your pictures and show us how you are changing the world, one meal at a time. We hope you'll find some special moments spending time together - family and food.
