After introducing the new Cooking for Kids column on B:Kids I thought it is nice to share the terrific food inspired -shirts with you from Puddlefoot! Suzi MacDougall recently started her new brand with these very beautiful colored 100% organic tees for tots ... growing up with a passionate Gardener for a mom, Suzie already learned at a young age to fully respect our environment and started drawing funny little things inspired by nature at a young age ... I can only imagine how proud she must feel with this lovely collection!

New Column :: Cooking for Kids


Very excited and happy to show you a new feature or perhaps I should say 'column' here on B:Kids ... Cooking for Kids ... as of today I'm going to show you a weekly healthy recipe for kids written by a guest writer or me... when thinking about this new column I  knew I had to ask my very dear friend Jenny Stegall to write the very first column and hopefully many more ... I met Jenny in Kuala Lumpur and she has made our lives so much more fun and interesting... with her great sense of humor and unbelievable talent for cooking and food-styling... on top of this she is also a fabulous host... we had some wonderful dinner parties ... unfortunately for us she moved back to San Fransisco, but having her as a regular guest on B:Kids is just a fantastic way of sharing our friendship and love for doing fun things with and for our children ... this week Jenny is telling us a bit more about her passion for food, how to feed our children healthy meals and a great recipe for vegetable pancakes ... click here for the new column!


Before moving to Asia Jenny ran a catering business in SF and also worked as a private chef for home-dining ... fortunately for you... she is back in SF and has started catering again... so please feel free to email Jenny for any catering information ...

Eve ... how fun it is for me to write about the new etsy shop from my dear friend, Tanya who also lives here in Kuala Lumpur ... Tanya and I have been talking a lot about blogging, etsy, being creative and doing something next to being a full time mom ... and I'm so happy to see that Tanya has made a plan together with her sister, Jessica who lives in the USA, to start selling these super cute baby hats made of a high quality cotton-acrylic blend ... the hats are only the first items from a line of more baby/parent accessories that are just as stylish to come  ... so I can't wait to see their new collection of baby diaper bags that that they are both working on at the moment ... I already love these hats and am sure the other products from the EVE brand will be great, congratulations Tanya and Jessica!
