Want a Cracker?

One my my child's favorite words is "cracker." Most often she is referring to the little organic graham sticks I give her as "cookies." But she is not opposed to a good gourmet cracker either. Who can blame her? I've blown an embarrasing amount of money on those exotic flatbreads; crackers, crisps, and crostinis. And then I found out how easy it is to make them. You can buy the lavash flatbread for about $2.00US, enough to make a couple $5.00 boxes of gourmet crackers at least.

I just used the things I had on hand and made these two basic types:

Parmesean, Rosemary and Sea Salt

Aged Gouda, Three-herb cracker
Looking for this recipe? It will be part of an upcoming book with Ali at Cleaner Plate Club.

For those of you following the toddler recipes (Taute Cuisine) the kid eats this recipe as well. In fact, she loved the gouda one and requested "More! More! More!" You wouldn't think of this as "kid food" but you need to get out of that mind set and just serve FOOD. Outside of a few allergy rules and rules on using pasteurized dairy and well-cooked meats, kids pretty much eat what you do.

I'm looking for some help…

We're starting a podcast for/by people who have immigrated to another country. We'd like to bring stories/articles by contributors FROM every continent, TO every continent. (i.e., a Mexican living in Canada, or a Scot living in France, a Dane living in Japan, an Ecuadorian living in Brazil, an Australian living in Africa, etcetera, etcetera.)

The "immigrant" category is rather large, examples include: expatriates, academics, aid workers, refugees, foreign businesspeople, spouses of "foreigners" etc.

I've written to quite a few organizations searching for good contributors; journalism schools, international corporations, non-profit aid organizations, etc. I've had a lot of interest, but not a lot of actual work submitted.

I was hoping to find help here in the blogosphere, as you all are prolific writers!

Please help! I need people to contribute articles (2-3 pages), 3 times per year. You may of course choose the topic, it may be light or heavy. Please see the guidelines set out in our website in the "contribute here" section.

I think you got spammed. I'm sorry.

You're right about kids. My kids will eat just about everything that's put in front of them, to the amazement of our friends who can't get their kids to eat the same things.

It's easy. You model for them. Present over and over and above all else, make it taste good. No one likes boiled green beans, but fresh green beans with some onion and garlic sauteed in olive oil are delicous, and kids will think so too!
