From Head to Toe: Wunway

We were so thrilled when we spotted Wunway in our e-mail inbox ready to get the Small Fry treatment. When we learned more about the three moms (their 10 collective kids trumps our 6!) we were inspired. Their motto is “Style Starts Young” and we couldn’t agree more. When you see your kid light up when they put on their “cool” shoes or that ratty t-shirt they love so much, that motto becomes a reality. Wunway is all about creating pieces that help girls empower and express themselves! When it comes to super cool, hip, and unique clothing for girls, Wunway is the first place every mom should look. We just about died over their new line, and we know you will too!

little foodies: pizza

Cooking with kids is a topic we are excited to explore in our new “Little Foodies” series each month! Our boys enjoy it so much, and we love finding delicious recipes that they can get their hands on. We’ve found if they play a part in the process they also can’t wait to eat it, which gives us opportunities to introduce them to new ingredients and cuisines! Case in point: Our Juicing 101 post, (yep, that’s Hayes drinking beets.)

For this month’s Little Foodies adventure, Culinary Crafts had us over to make every kid’s favorite: pizza! Chef Marco Niccoli showed us the ropes, alongside his darling sous chef and daughter, Luna. We all had a blast!

Marco set us up with the most beautiful gourmet ingredients for our pizzas. Fresh mozzarella, salami, Italian ham, short rib, sun dried tomatoes, zucchini, artichoke hearts, butternut squash, arugula, fresh tomatoes, carmelized onions and garlic infused oil to top it all off. Are you hungry yet?Photography by Alyssa Vincent
Here’s how we did it:
1. Flour your cutting board and lightly spread out your pizza dough.

2. Use a rolling pin to spread it out about the width of a soccer ball for a personal sized pizza.

3. Toss in the air with the glee a la Quinn Rammell and sheer concentration of one Dash Christensen.

4. Once your dough is rolled out you can either top it with a tomato marinara, Alfredo sauce, or garlic infused oil.

5. Once you’ve selected your toppings it’s ready for the oven! Marco’s tip: leave off all fresh greens like arugula or watercress so they don’t burn!

6. Stick the pizza pies in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes and enjoy!

 We’re so grateful to Marco and Culinary Crafts for hosting us and creating such a memorable afternoon for us and the boys. If you need the best for your next catered event, Culinary Crafts is it! They’re food is always beautiful and always delicious.

Also, huge thank you to Alyssa Vincent for these gorgeous images. She is unbelievable, right?

all-natural geometric art project

Today on Spoonful we’re sharing a super fun art project we did with the boys. We used all-natural paints, water soluble paints with pigments derived from fruits and vegetables, so we really let them go to town with this one! See the full post and instructions here.
