My husband and I accepted a challenge recently, to cook a meal together. I will admit I was surprised by how easy it was, even with our toddler running around.
We got to look back on fond memories and share a few laughs. At the end of it all our bellies were full and so were our hearts. This was much-needed time off for him being an entrepreneur Dad and me being a stay-at-home mum and running The Honey Pot Cuisine. Check out the full video below of our quality time together in the kitchen as a family.
