We started shooting short cooking programs at weelicious when the site began a few years ago. It was a way for me to get into the kitchen with Kenya to demonstrate how to pull off fast, fresh and easy meals and show how involving kids in the kitchen gets them interested in eating a larger variety of foods. In my experience, when kids have a hand at preparing some of their meal, they’re much more excited about eating it.
Over the next few days, we’re going to highlight a few of our favorite video recipes from the past year. I tried to select the episodes that either generated the most feedback on the message board or that Kenya requested the most! As 2009 comes to a close, hopefully your life will feel a bit slower and easier this week so you can watch some programs with your family and be inspired to get into the kitchen together and make some fun meals!
Kenya loves Avocado Shake. It’s hands down his favorite video of the year (make sure to watch until the last few seconds to see why), so I had to put it up first! Today at the farmers’ market we bought 3 different varieties of avocado_ Bacon, Hass and Fuerte. They were all super soft, creamy and delicious, so you can be sure we’ll be celebrating this recipe before 2010 gets here!
