(Family Features) - In an increasingly advanced technological world, family members may spend more time looking at a screen than they do at each other. To help bridge that gap and inspire families to enjoy more quality time together, Unilever Foods recently introduced The Family Dish...A Recipe for Fun, a new program encouraging moms to get their families in the kitchen cooking together.
Lauren Dellabella and Anna Marie Cesario, co-managers of the Unilever Consumer Test Kitchens, agree that cooking is a great creative outlet, and the simple acts of mixing and measuring together can lead to "amazing conversations and memories that last a lifetime." Among the suggestions from Lauren and Anna Marie, both moms themselves, is using computers or smart phones to access recipes and other cooking-related information. "This is your chance to simply cook, connect and spend quality time together," advises Ms. Dellabella.
To provide families with the inspiration they need to take the first step, The Family Dish website features budget-friendly and palate-pleasing recipes made with popular pantry staples; the professional knowledge and personal experience of Unilever Consumer Kitchens' experts; and the hands on stories and videos from trusted mom bloggers. There's also an exclusive cookbook with easy-to-prepare and tasty recipes from the Unilever Consumer Test Kitchens.
Here are some family-friendly recipes to help your family discover the fun of cooking together. Find more at www.TheFamilyDish.com.
