One of my biggest goals as of late when people ask me how to get their family transitioned over to real food is…enjoy it. Make it fun. Get the kids involved. Make it a positive experience.
I think we underestimate how much kids can do in the kitchen. I know I have and still do at times. I am constantly reminding myself to slow down and let them help. This weekend my big girls and I got a chance to try out a new recipe from the book “And Here We Are At The Table“, and my 5 year old pretty much did it all on her own (including reading the recipe!).
Ariana is one of my favorite people. An American living expat, she has a huge appreciation for all cultures – and the cuisine that goes along with them. We share a similar view toward exposing children to a wide variety of food to build healthy taste palates, and I just love following her expat adventures with her sweet family.
Her new book “And Here We Are At The Table” is more than just a cookbook. Part memoir, part travelog, along with 80 recipes from all over the world, this book really pulled me in. The recipes are warm and inviting, and her stories charming and fascinating.
There almost 200 pages full of gorgeous photos of food and scenery from Ariana’s travels. The instructions are very easy to follow and the recipes are nourishing and all grain free! There are also 3 cooking tutorial videos, and exclusive sections on food adventures like foraging and visiting various global markets around the world included in the digital version of this book.
I am more than honored that Ariana was gracious enough to let me share one of the recipes from her new book here with you today! These tahini molasses cookies were a big hit here! They are warm and slightly sweet, and I will be honest it was not what I was expecting from tahini!
One of the things I loved about this book was learning more about ingredients that I maybe don’t use enough of in my kitchen. I have only used tahini to make hummus, but they made a great cookie – and will be perfect to pack up for children in schools that are nut free zones!
