I'll be honest, sometimes I dread dinner with my family. First I have to figure out what to eat that won't result in a 45 minute battle at the table, yet I'm tired of the same old chicken nuggets and mac and cheese. (Don't get me wrong - I am a big fan of those - but sometimes I feel like that's all I eat with 3 little kids).
Enter Lori. She's a mom of an opinionated almost 6 year old so she gets the battles over one-more-bite but while her son is in school she has solved the problem. She creates amazingly delicious recipes that are kid-approved but go beyond the basics. I love checking Lemons & Zest after a long day at work. Unlike other recipes that seem to always include ingredients I don't have at home, Lori sticks to the basics but uses her magic to whip them into way more than I could have come up with on my own.
After months of using her site on the regular, the only tricky thing was how to prop up the tablet while I was cooking. So, we came up with a cookbook holder. The sliding design makes it work for a variety of thicknesses. When you're done, slide apart and fold flat.
So, together with the cookbook stand and the best family recipe website Pinecone Home and Lemons and Zest are here to take the dreading out of dinner time.
