Organic Corner: Cooking with Kids!

We all know that cooking with your kids is one of the most Fab & Fru activities out there -  Besides being a huge money saver, it’s fun and you can, of course, make treats with organic and natural ingredients, instead of giving them a lot of chemical-laden ick!

Which is why Fab & Fru is so excited to tell you about a brand new book we adore: CoCo Levine, Cupcake Queen: Fabulous Adventures in Cooking, Crafting & Friendship is hot off the press and available on Amazon. And it’s not just for girls – I have two little boys who just adore Coco’s icky best friend, Larry Contrary, not to mention his recipe for Pickled Frogs!

To celebrate this book launch -and the Fab & Fru-ness of cooking with your kids – we have a fantastic giveaway this week -  A signed copy of CoCo Levine – personally inscribed to your little one from the author, Audrey Davidow, along with a Mini Cupcake Pop Mold, so you can make one of our favorite recipes in the book, CoCo’s Cupcake Lolipops!

To enter to win the book and cupcake pop mold giveaway, just let us know what your favorite memory of cooking as a kid is!

    One of our teacher’s in first grade loved baking with us. I’ll never forget making apple crisp in the first few weeks of school. We all helped peel the apples, scrunched the sugar,cinnamon, butter and oats with our hands in a huge bowl. She never scolded a child who took abite of ingredients our licked their finger during the process. She’d read to us while things baked and I always swore my clothes smelled like pastry shop when I got home. Perfection!

Any Thoughts?
