"Hey Mom, I'll Start Dinner." Wouldn't it be nice to hear that at the end of a long day? That is actually the title of a cookbook written by Cherilyn Dahlsten. It is also the name of Cherilyn's blog. Here is what Cherilyn says about her blog:
My blog, rather than being mostly about cooking, is mostly about this working mom's attempts to buck the culture that tells our kids it's all about them, and instill in them an understanding that they are a gift here to be a blessing to the world and to make it a better place. If this is something that resonates with you, please join me on that journey to put wonderful theory into practical, on-the-ground parenting.
The cookbook is set up to make it as easy as possible for you to work with your children in the kitchen. For every recipe there is a Night Before section to help you make sure everything is prepared for your children when it is time for them to work on tomorrow's supper.
I love the Tips From Grant! Some of them really made me laugh! Grant is Cherilyn's twelve year old son who played a big part in helping her decide which recipes to include in the cookbook. Here are some of his tips:
- "I usually don't like fish but these actually aren't bad. And taking the bone out is kind of like doing a science experiment."
- "Get your dad some Beano and make sure he takes it!"
- "Don't measure the vinegar over the meat sauce because if too much comes out - trust me - it's not good."
