Devokids and Dinner

What I am about to write is going to make some of you laugh. Not because it is particularly funny, but those of you who know me well will see such irony in my newest endeavor.

I will be writing a monthly food (as in cooking) blog at

I love to write.

I do not love to cook.

I never have loved cooking, and I probably never will. But like it or not, it is something I do on an almost irritatingly regular basis. There are four males living in my house, plus for some crazy reason we feed a bunch of teenagers (whom I love dearly) on Monday nights. So on the average night, I cook for my family, and once a week I try to come up with something palatable for a large group.

I have had several children’s devotions published at devokids, and it is a pretty cool site (they just revamped the whole thing) with a variety of kid-focused content. When they approached me about the possibility taking over a monthly food post, I giggled at the thought and then decided why not?

The goal of the blog is to provide something for parents and children to do together, so all of my recipes will be for kid-friendly foods that are simple enough for the kids to help prepare. You can find my first post here.

So go ahead and take a peek at my first attempt at food blogging. And if you have any fun, kid-friendly recipes, send them my way. And if you have kids who enjoy cooking let me know that too. It’d be great to do a food post featuring your kid!

I blog monthly at and have freelanced for a variety of publications including Chicken Soup for the Soul, Guideposts, Thriving Family and Creation Illustrated. Cancer made an unwelcome visit in my breast in January 2016, and I am now working on a book about breast reconstruction after having gone through the insane process myself. My incredible husband of 18 years, Corey, is my biggest writing cheerleader and together we are having a ball raising our three growing boys; Carter 15, Owen 14 and Lewis 10.

  1. Fun! I love to cook and all my kids love to help out, some recipes more kid friendly than others. I’m really working with Mya the most, cooking is one of her favorites things to do. I’ll look for something to pass your way.

  2. That’d be great Cheryl! If there is a recipe you and Mya would like to do at home and take a few photos of the process, I’d love to post about it.

  3. Love the first post! Will have to try the recipe.
