My sweet Kate just turned 7 years old. Just like a little girl, she has always loved cooking in her "kitchen" and making her creations outside with soil, water, and grass. Our neighbor, Mrs. Poole, has always been gracious to share her garden expertise with my children and share her garden goodies. On this particular day, Kate picked some summer squash, fresh basil, and tomatoes from the garden.....and created this wonderful recipe that blew me away. All by herself, she prepared this recipe using real kitchen tools. As a mom, I never really knew when kids were ready to start actually using real knives, a real stove, etc.....but after seeing her put her ideas together and giving her some instruction, she was ready! After tasting this recipe, I asked her if she wanted to share it with others and inspire other children and parents to get in the kitchen together to create some healthy recipes! Of course, she agreed.
Hope you enjoy!
P.S. There are a few commercial breaks due to our boys (4 and 5 yrs.) in the background...haha.
