The Sombrero Juicer by Umbra lets you easily add a splash of citrus to your beverage. Simply place the juicer into the top of your beverage container and quickly juice a lemon or lime right into your drink. Definitely something I can live without but I admit, it made me look.
Our newest studiomate, Kelly Carambula, started her first day off with a bang: She brought in these homemade Rhubarb and Ginger Crumb Bars. Little did she know that I have a slight obsession with Rhubarb (along with Brussel Sprouts)!
Kelly *just* posted the recipe on her site Eat Make Read, so now I can try to take a stab at them myself. Woohoo!
LaLa Lunchbox is a brandnew iphone app that lets your kids plan their own lunches and teaches them to make smarter food choices!
Kids get to personalize and design their lunchboxes with fun monsters and colors, and then plan their lunches for a whole week at a time. They simply swipe their choices into their lunchbox from a large selection of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and snacks. Along the way, they learn that a balanced lunch includes items from each category. Parents can easily personalize and edit the items available to their kids.
G and I have been trying to teach our 6 year old, Ella, about the importance of a balanced diet. I am pretty sure she’ll enjoy playing with this app and feeling in control over what goes in her lunchbox. I’ll give LaLa Lunchbox a try, hoping it will not overcomplicate things!
Funny Food: 365 Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts will turn carrots into airplanes; boiled eggs into jugglers, and pears into guitar players. At this point, I am willing to try anything, to get my 2 year old something else than just plain beige foods. Here’s a video of some of the pages in the book.
My daughter is completely obsessed with Yummyfun Kooking, a seriously adorable, quirky cooking show made for kids. (I love watching the show myself.) Ella loves the show so much, she asked me to sign her up for actual cooking classes. And I admit, that makes me happy.
So, here’s a brand new episode that Claire Crespo, the chef in the show and mastermind behind it all, *just* launched:
Ah, so apparently I can’t embed it, but you can watch it here.
