The Blog Launch

This is my first Pickles and Cake blog post. I plan to showcase both healthy and hedonistic food and beverage offerings from around the globe. The primary focus will be culinary adventures you can experience with your children although any family enhancement or epicurean delight is fair game. My daughters consistently surprise me with their enthusiasm for trying new foods and I hope to use this blog to inspire myself and others to move beyond Easy Mac and Juice Boxes. Don't get me wrong, I love a good batch of "mac and chee" just like the next guy and I'll be the first to recognize that sometimes the easy way out is the only way to get through dinnertime. That being said, the ultimate goal here is to help reinforce my belief that good food is worth making time for and that eating well should always be an option. Is it true that every good blog entry ends with a poignant quote? Maybe not, but this one does...

"Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all." ~Harriet van Horne

mmmmmm....bubbly mac and chee

  1. That Quinoa recipe looks absolutely awesome! I love what you've done so far and look forward to reading about your exciting food finds. It makes me hungry, but even more so, it makes me want to eat right! Who wouldn't want to try that no cook tomato sauce?
