So, you might think I’m just a crazy kids food lady after reading my recent post: Why I blog about kids food and a bit about me, but I want to explain a bit further…and in the process I’m entering a competition at the conference I’m attending next week (Problogger) to win a blogging kit from Shoebox Timeline, Problogger and The Good Guys . Kidgredients isn’t all about me…it’s about you! That’s right, Kidgredients is ABOUT YOU! What do I mean? Well, I don’t blog for my benefit, although I do love to write, I blog because if I manage to help one of you lovely readers out, then I’m happy!
How many times have you followed a recipe, gotten it to the table and discovered the kids won’t eat it? Or struggled with actually following the recipe because it’s just so complicated? Or the recipe needs 17 gazillion ingredients that a) you don’t have b) you don’t know where to get and c) that you will never finish. Not here. We eat the stuff that goes on this blog, we eat the philosophy behind it as well, simple homemade food that is made from wholefoods. And my kids both have different eating personalities and they both try the food I make.
I think it’s important that you understand I’m a real person. My kids go crazy at Witching hour, I have kitchen fails, I cheat in lunchboxes sometimes…and we eat the occasional naughty food. I don’t have a food stylist here (lol I wish), I don’t even have a big kitchen (I’ve got about .5 metres useable bench space), I’ve never trained as a chef, I don’t have any fancy appliances but I create achievable recipes that you can make too, and that taste good.
So I ask one thing from you…if there is something you love, let me know! If there is something you want a recipe for, let me know! I’m more than happy to create a recipe for something you would love to cook, because that means it’s probably something that lots of you would be interested in! If there’e an ingredient you’d love me to try, likewise, let me know, because I love a challenge! Again…it’s all about you!
Anyway, I’ve put together this little video to show you a little bit about us, using Shoebox timeline, it’s cute, and I hope you enjoy watching it… hopefully it shows you a bit more about the “real” kidgredients!
If you want to make your own little slideshow video, for anything, say a birthday, wedding…anything really, shoebox timeline makes it really easy to do and makes it look like you’ve created an amazing slideshow, without any extra editing skills needed!
