I met Michelle Stern at BlogHer Food last October and we hit it off. I especially enjoyed chatting school lunch reform.

ChopChop magazine reached out to me and asked me if I had heard about their cooking magazine for kids. I hadn’t, but I was anxious to learn more.

Oooh! I’ve been on the prowl for creative lunch accessories to help me re-learn how to pack. When I saw snackTAXI, I thought they looked really interesting so I emailed them and asked if I could do a product review. They said sure! Ahhh! snackTAXI sent the cutest package of both a snack-size snackTAXI (Dimensions: 6″ […]

Nourish contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing the Nourish curriculum and watching the film, which aired on PBS in November. I happily agreed. Things got really busy for […]
