Our Best Bites Interview

The Our Best Bites blog is written by two moms Sara and Kate. I love their blog's fun kid friendly recipes that are sure to please. Their food photography really draws you in as well.
Thanks ladies for taking the time for our interview and sharing some fun blog posts.

Do you have a favorite meal your kids love?
S: My kids love stuffed pizza rolls. It's also a fun one for them to help prepare, they love picking their own stuffing combos! We also love doing breakfast for dinner sometimes, they think it's such a treat.

What do you enjoy about being a food blogger?
We really love being able to share something we love with people. We get so many emails from people telling us that we've helped them to love cooking, either for the first time, or for the first time in a long time, and that's the best compliment.

It's also been so amazing to form relationships with people all over the world! Our readers feel like they really know us since we're sharing experiences from our own lives, and as we interact with them we get to know them as well and that's been really fun.

Do you have a favorite post or your readers favorite post?
S: My favorite post to write was this mega-list of Halloween Party foods. I thought of the idea early in the year so I spent several weeks in the middle of the summer creating Halloween food! It was a blast and I had so much fun styling everything. It was a lot of work, but it paid off seeing as it's one of the most viewed posts on our site.

How did you get started with your food blog?
We really just started it for fun. We both loved to cook and entertain and our friends were always asking us for recipes. We both had young children and new babies at home and wanted a project to work on. So we started a little blog and put up a few of our favorite recipes. We never imagined it would turn into what it has!

How do you get your kids involved in helping in the kitchen?
S: My kids love to help. I try to make it fun by getting them their own aprons and sometimes their own special utensils. I find when they help make the food, they're more likely to like the food! So even if they can't have a "real" job in the kitchen, I'll let them do things like stir, or count out berries for me.

Tell us about your new cookbook coming out.
Our book is called "Our Best Bites: Mormon Moms in the Kitchen". It's a compilation of the most popular original recipes from our blog and a bunch of brand new ones as well. It will be available in stores in February, or you can pre-order it now! We had a blast writing it and photographing the food for it. It was a lot of work, but worth it!
