If you are a regular reader here, you know that I am not known for spending ample time in my kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I like to eat….I just can’t cook. Fortunately, my husband is a great cook and he is trying to help me learn my way around (how do you boil water again?).
In all seriousness, I do want to learn to bake and cook so that I can teach my daughters to prepare healthy meals for themselves and eventually their own families. Experimenting in the kitchen is a great way to spend quality time together and chat about why nutrition is important.
Barilla wants to encourage your child’s inner chef by hosting the Piccolini Next Mini Chef Contest! Throughout the month of July, you and your child can create a nutritious and delicious recipe using Piccolini mini pasta for the chance to win a $10,000 scholarship. Some great recipes have already been created and displayed on the website. I love the mini ricotta meatball recipe! YUM! These kids are certainly talented.
Take a minute to create a recipe (and a lifetime memory) with your child in the kitchen. Submit your story, pictures and recipe to Piccolini’s Next Mini Chef Contest and start getting some votes! Good Luck!
