Sunday Supper with ThreeManyCooks

I know it may sound trite, but as the weather turns cool, it makes me want to gather around the kitchen table with family and friends. Maybe it’s that a warm meal makes me feel cozy on a cold day. Maybe it’s that the cool weather makes me want to spend time in the warm kitchen. Who knows?

After I returned from the BlogHer Food conference a few weeks ago with the new cookbook from Pam Anderson, my daughter thumbed through it and picked out a handful of recipes she wanted us to make together. That’s my dream come true, really. A once overly selective little girl is now picking out recipes from appealing books that she wants to try. Sigh.

The weekend was brimming with activities, and I was elbow deep in my first tomato canning project, so we opted to make a Sunday Supper with two simple recipes from Perfect One-Dish Dinners. It’s always a relief to find a cookbook with a range of recipes – some of which can be pulled together quickly with two youngsters in tow. I assembled the Miniature Crab Cakes while the kids made the Caesar Salad Flatbread Pizzas.

It was fun making dinner with my mom. I am a beginner cook but I could still measure the ingredients for the flat bread and roll out the dough.
I also smashed the crackers with my fists for the crab cakes. – Ari, age 8

I loved the salad on the flat bread, especially how I could eat it like a pizza! I don’t like using a fork, so this was perfect. – Amelia, age 10
