After a long day of running around, picking up kids from soccer practice and completing errands around town, one of the hardest things to feel excited about is figuring out what to cook for dinner. We recently had the pleasure of meeting with Catherine McCord, creator of the popular food blog and recipe book Weelicious and the amazing meal delivery service One Potato. McCord graciously invited myself and L.A. Parent’s Christina Elston into her beautiful kitchen to cook a delicious family-friendly meal, and to talk about the importance of incorporating family-time into meal-time.
Like most moms, as a mother of two McCord strives to cook healthy and exciting recipes for her little ones, while still making sure the family as a whole is satisfied. We joined McCord for one of her weekly Facebook Live Events where she typically cooks one of her delicious meals while engaging with fans who have questions and ideas to share. On today’s event we set out to cook a newer recipe within the One Potato family–a Moroccan Chicken Tagine recipe with yummy couscous.
The fantastic thing about One Potato, a 2018 NAPPA Winner, is that all the recipes are designed to be quick, easy, and amazingly delicious. We shared ideas on how to get kids excited to try new foods, and how to get them involved in the process of cooking by chopping simple ingredients and helping wash up fruits and veggies for example. In just under 30 minutes we had a yummy meal made from simple, wholesome ingredients that had tons of flavor!
