    I love your recipe page. I am a former homeschooling parent and I also believed in teaching life skills like cooking. If you do anything eco related I would love to do a guest blog exchange with you. I am listing the kid’s blog. Let me know if you are interested.

    I have a kids blog that mostly relates to solar energy and it’s issues. It is called The kids are pre-teens and they work on science experiments, smart energy use, solving energy problems,etc. Most homeschoolers (I home schooled my boys) have to be very frugal and they teach with a different philosophy. Life skills such as cooking at home save money and teach a skill at the same time. Cooking at home means families save the energy of going to a restaurant, they also eat healthier since the foods are usually more natural.

    Any tips you have on problem solving, energy savings, science lessons (cooking inclusive) would be of interest to my younger readers and their families. We have covered things like solar cookers, solar science experiments, some gardening and more. I have also challenged kids to finish the stories (we have characters) and share their thoughts on energy.

    Let me know if you would like to give it a shot. Thank you for your time.
