EmmaEats…and Katie too! celebrates fresh homemade food that intertwines flavours for grown-ups and children alike (most of the time!). These family friendly recipes and stories about life with children aim to get people back into the kitchen and bring them together around the dinner table.
As an IT Professional turned stay-at-home mom, blogging was originally an opportunity to stay current with the online world. It turned into a wonderful way to collect and curate different recipes and traditions for my official taste-testers (Emma and Katie) and for other families looking to eat well together.
A few questions and answers to them
Q. Why did you start EmmaEats?
A. I have not worked in a restaurant or attended culinary school but was brought up and always surrounded by people who could bake and cook well. Our families also thought it was very important for us to reconnect at the end of each day. Once our own family grew, I realized how important that reconnection truly is and now we work to have homemade meals, together, on our table more often than not. It’s not always easy, and we have some weekly not-so-homemade rituals to help but hopefully, you’ll find some inspiration for your own family.
Additionally, when Emma was two, we learned she has a nut allergy. Since we aren’t aware of any nut allergies in our families, this came as quite a surprise. Although our pre-Emma diet was never overloaded with nuts, we certainly became much more conscious of where they can appear. We look for recipes of foods and snacks that Emma and her friends would enjoy, yet we would be concerned around exposure to nuts in the purchased versions.
Q. Where do you find the recipes you write about?
A. We are a family who loves to eat and have family, friends and acquaintances who all love to eat as well. Inspiration on EmmaEats comes from a number of sources, including cookbooks, websites, magazines and of course, from family and friends. Ultimately, I aim to feature recipes on EmmaEats that are quick, easy and hopefully help you see that you can make good food from scratch.
