This month we’re thinking about the color pink! Because, well, Valentine’s Day is coming up, and we’re romantic like that. What have you eaten that’s pink? What have you eaten that’s naturally pink? What flavors do you associate with the color pink? We’ve got a fun pink recipe, some pink food facts, and some pink activities, too. We think you’ll love it all.

This week we’re cooking with watermelon. We’re making ice pops and salads and other fun cool-off recipes. Do you love watermelon as much as we do?

This week we’re cooking pasta. Do you have pasta night at your house? What’s your favorite pasta shape? Something long, like spaghetti? Short and tubular, like ziti? A fun shape, like wagon wheels or bowties? The main recipe this week is a salad made from orzo, a small rice-shaped pasta that’s fun to eat. The skills you’ll practice will help you cook up any kind of pasta.
