Six months is a LONG time to keep a secret as big as this. But alas, the time has come when I can officially share with you a very big and exciting announcement. PBS Parents is launching a new food blog on their site today called Kitchen Explorers. My co-contributor, Aviva Goldfarb, and I will be writing weekly for this new site. The Kitchen Explorers site is beautiful and it is my sincere hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Working for PBS is truly wonderful and a blessing. Growing up my parents, siblings, and I depended on PBS for quality television programming for children such as Sesame Street, The Electric Company, Mr. Rogers, and my personal favorite 3-2-1 Contact. We were never cable subscribers and PBS was the only trusted station my parents would let us watch in the mornings. As a young child I would love watching the cooking shows on Saturdays during the day. I had no idea what the hosts were cooking but I remember wishing I could eat whatever it was they prepared. Even now I’m still not a cable subscriber and PBS is the only station my kids watch. Eli loves Sesame Street and Elmo. Abbi and Mimi love The Electric Company and The Cat in the Hat shows. And every once in awhile I still watch a cooking show. PBS has been growing with our family over generations and I find it a bit ironic but exciting that I am their new food writer for the PBS Parents site.
If you are the parent, grandparent, or guardian of children between the ages of 2-10 yrs. old, I invite you to participate in our community there. Each week we will be posting new recipes, tips, and articles to help you and your family in the kitchen. We will also be asking for community participation and be using your comments and suggestions on future posts. So come by and take a look at the new PBS Parents Kitchen Explorers site and tell me what you think. I would love to hear from you!
