Click here to learn why I’m blogging every day this month. I’ve got one more crafty post before I return to my regularly scheduled food programming… If you read yesterday’s post about my daughter’s handmade American Girl feast, then you know I’ve got a girl who can spend hours (days) creating. She often has multiple projects […]

An American Girl doll feast

June 11, 2014

Click here to learn why I’m blogging every day this month. This is one of the things I love about summer break. When Tess wants to immerse herself in a project, she can jump in with both feet and just go. Here’s how she spent half the day today — crafting food for her American Girl […]

Click here to learn why I’m blogging every day this month. Today I quipped on Facebook about how hard it is to change my daughter’s bed sheets because of all her stuffed animals. Apparently that resonated with a lot of you, because it was one of those me-too threads. And that made me remember this […]

Click here to learn why I’m blogging every day this month. I live for finds like this. Maybe I should curate a little Spoonfed store with all the neat food-literacy products I come across. (Hmmm.) For now, though, I’ll share just one. It’s a silicone placemat that kids can color with washable or dry-erase markers. (It’s […]

Wax wax baby

June 5, 2014

Click here to learn why I’m blogging every day this month. Awhile ago, Tess came home from school talking about Babybel cheese. All the kids have it. It’s so cool. Could she get some, pretty-please-please-please? On the scale of foods I worry about, Babybel cheese doesn’t even rank. Weird texture, yeah. Wrapped in dyed paraffin […]

The things we keep

October 4, 2013

Our daughter’s Hello Kitty thermos was supposed to be passed along, one of those outgrown things that has no place in our new pared-down life. But then a friend posted a picture of a Hardy Boys thermos she and her husband found while replacing a porch. Maybe it’s because the mod outlines of Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson snapped me back to my own ’70s […]

Looking back to look ahead

September 12, 2013

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about perception. The way we perceive others. The way others perceive us. The way we see ourselves. And I remembered an essay I wrote a long time ago, when food was becoming a really big thing for me and I was teetering between conviction and self-consciousness. This essay is long (like book-chapter […]

Why I’m not posting lunch pictures anymore

September 9, 2013

Last year at this time, I joined the ranks of bloggers who post pictures of their kids’ lunches. I started for mostly selfish reasons. After years of cramming lunch-packing into rushed mornings (despite many resolutions not to), I wanted to go on record with my night-packing commitment and own it by posting pictures on the Spoonfed Facebook page. But I also […]

Experiencing technical difficulties. Please stand by.

May 24, 2011

I should have written this post weeks ago. But you know how you keep thinking a problem will resolve in just one more day? Maybe two. Even three. So you stick it out and then a whole bunch of time passes and you’re like, huh, wha…? How has it been three weeks since I posted? […]

Blue no more. I’m blogging it.

March 15, 2010

A year ago I e-mailed friends with the idea for this blog. I was already bouncing around names, and I wanted input. But none of the names clicked. Then life got busy and paying work took priority. Still, the blog was always there, nagging at me, tempting me, taking shape in my head if not […]
