Cookin’ with Mitch: Plaid Blueberry Pie

Chef Mitch here!

Kelly’s diet never really developed beyond the first grade. Just like she was when she was six, she’s still into bologna sandwiches, mac ‘n cheese, crackers and grape juice. (In her case, fermented.) I’ve even caught her making lunch trades with Emma!

Last-Minute Christmas Shopping with Mitch

Mitch here!

Well, you’ve done it again. We’re five days from Christmas and you’ve procrastinated yourself into a corner.

Don’t get me wrong: Christmas shopping is tough! So tough that the whole world saw fit to invent a jolly superhero to make the whole thing believable. Side note: How incredibly frustrating must it be for parents to hand off all gifting credit to a fictional,

An Emma Update: The Toddler Years

Mitch here!

It’s been 16 months since we welcomed a teeny baby into our home. And in the time it took for me to wrap my head around the fact that I had a baby, she turned into a kid. As clichéd as this is to say, it goes by so quickly.

Mitch here!

As the guy in charge of this hectic family’s food supply, I rely heavily on easy meal solutions. When Kelly and Emma’s teary eyes drift to me with those “feed me now or I’ll ruin your whole day” kind of looks, I know the pressure is on to get a meal together before a (double) blood sugar meltdown is upon me. While we don’t always eat at the table,

Cookin’ with Mitch: Honey Butter Fried Chicken

If Kelly cooked, this is the recipe she would make for me… um… I can’t finish this sentence because the concept of Kelly cooking me dinner is too bizarre to imagine. 

What a Jersey Boardwalk is Like

Mitch here!

In case you didn’t notice–and I’m not sure that’s even possible with the deluge of Ocean City photography all over this site–the Larkin family spent the last two weeks of summer down the Jersey Shore, enjoying what can best be described as our collective “happy place.” We love it there.

Cookin’ with Mitch: No-Knead Bread (& Mad Libs)

Chef Mitch here!

As a teacher on summer break, I’m embracing my full-time daddy responsibilities with open arms. My funny face game is on point. My monkey impression is unparalleled. When Emma pulls all her books off the shelf, I have ’em right back up in descending order with her favorites on the lower shelves per Mommy’s instructions. I’m a bottle-filling, diaper-changing, story-reading, scary tickle-monstering sensation.

Eating with Emma

This post was sponsored by Gerber, but all opinions are our own. And as always, thank you so much for supporting the partnerships that keep Kelly in the City up and running! Also, just in case, we should mention that Emma was highly supervised while these photos were being taken.

I’m still astonished that I was allowed to walk out of the hospital with a baby 11 months ago.
