This summer I read Bringing up Bébé that was given to me by a friend of mine. I loved this book. It’s a memoir of an American writer and mother of three living and raising their kids in Paris. I found a lot of similarities between French and Dutch cultures and their approaches to child rearing. The author writes a lot about food in France, food culture, and raising children that are food lovers. It’s one of the biggest focuses in the book. She writes about French friends who bake often with their kids. I love this.
I love being with Flora in the kitchen. She loves it too. She will choose cooking in the kitchen over watching Netflix. I call this a win!
We recently made carrot muffins. Super easy and delicious! She’s a good little helper in the kitchen. Grating carrots, beating the eggs, whisking the dry ingredients. The cutest part is her narrating her own cooking show. We setup my phone on a tripod and make videos. It’s hilarious.
Going through these photos I was able to see how much Flora and I look alike. My skinny little blonde girl looks very different to me at times, but looking at these photos with dark brown eyes, I see how much we have in common.
Here is a link to the recipe we used and Youtube channel for inspiration.
