Cooking in the kitchen is one of our favorite things to do together as a family, it’s something my husband and I enjoy doing together a lot. Passing that love onto our children is amazing, and I love to watch how they love it too.  We cooked up one of our favorite  italian pasta salads, recipe below.  This boy especially has taken to the kitchen, I can ask him to help with anything and he’s right there eager to help and learn if need be.  He especially loves working with our grill…excited to continue to foster that love for cooking with my children. We especially love our Hedley & Bennett aprons. Love that they are so durable and perfect for the whole family.
