  1. Such screen talent in your family! And you are creating such an easy, relaxed kitchen upbringing for your kids. And for me too – this past weekend I roasted pumpkin seeds leftover from our pumpkin carving – and I had your little voice in my head, encouraging me to enjoy myself, not look for perfection but for the experience. They came out yummy! Thanks Alma.
