I get so much joy out of being in the kitchen with my kids. There’s something about the physical closeness of it and the satisfaction we all get from working together to make something yummy and healthy. It fills me right up with happiness. Spring break can be the perfect opportunity to slow down, put on some aprons, and get together over some delicious snacks, lunch boards, and scrumptious desserts. I hope you enjoy making some of these family favorites with your kiddos over spring break.
