    The Zucchini Pie Adventure

    No Ratings Yet

    Let me just say that my kids didn't step, they jumped into the kitchen when we made our fabulous Zucchini Pie. It isn't that I haven't let them help in the kitchen before, because I have! It's just that I usually let them do the pouring and the stirring because I'm afraid of them getting cut. So when I presented them with a set of knives and tools that they could use on their own they were thrilled to pieces. The handles are designed to be no slip and easy for smaller hands to work with. The blades on the knives are serrated and have a blunt tip, which is great for cutting food but not little fingers! Best of all everything is dishwasher safe making clean up a breeze.

So, when it comes to food preparation – there's no going off recipe. Today we will be cooking with the topic of food temperatures. It is not only important in preparing food, but we will look at the often overlooked topic of food storage with regard to how to store and why it is so important to follow these guidelines once you've had your portions for the day.

    Our first ingredient in this recipe is understanding why food temperature is so important. A little bacteria never hurt anyone, right? Well, that is actually very wrong. Specifically, the bacteria that can hurt you are called pathogens and they cause food poisoning. The scary thing about these bacteria, is that unlike spoiled food that gives off an unappealing odor or slimy consistency, it hides undetected with odor or unusual texture. With possible life threatening consequences pathogens like salmonella or E.coli have, it's ever so important to make sure you do everything you can to stop these bacteria from invading your food.

    Tips for Getting Small Kiddos Involved in the Kitchen

    by Racheal - La Fuji Mama

    "In the childhood memories of every good cook, there's a large kitchen, a warm stove, a simmering pot and a mom."
    -- Barbara Costikyan (10/22/84 New York Magazine)

    What do you get when you combine 7 children (ranging in ages from 18 months up to 4 years of age) with flour, yeast, water, cheese, pizza sauce, etc.? A recipe for disaster? Not if you plan it right!
