EmmaEats…and Katie too! celebrates fresh, uncomplicated, homemade food – food that intertwines flavours for grown-ups and kids alike. These family-friendly recipes and stories about life with Emma and Katie 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. There are a few reasons for EmmaEats…and Katie too! Although I’ve never worked in a restaurant or attended culinary school, since childhood I was always surrounded by people who were very proficient in the kitchen. EmmaEats provides a mechanism to keep track of my family’s most memorable and requested recipes. As well, my family thought it was very important for us to reconnect everyday and that reconnection tended to be at the dinner table. Once my own family grew, I realized how important that reconnection truly is and that it takes effort to make it happen. In our house, we work to have homemade meals together more often than not and hopefully through these stories and recipes, you’ll find some reassurance that you can do this too.
When Emma was two, we also discovered she had a nut allergy. Although our pre-Emma diet was not overloaded with nuts, Emma’s allergy meant we became much more conscious of where they can appear. All the recipes on EmmaEats are ones that Emma, Katie and their friends can enjoy and alleviate our concerns around allergies and sensitivities.
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, recipes featured on EmmaEats are easy, quick, very flavourful and will show that you, too, can make good food from scratch.
