Eating, drinking, and slowing down as a family are important to us. Even when we have soccer practice, church youth group activities, and homework to contend with, we always try to sit down to dinner together. 

This has helped instill a love of food, beverages (of the non-alcoholic variety, of course), and conversation in our kids. They'll be contributing their thoughts on the foods and drinks they love here. 

All of the writing (save a light copy edit from the parents) is the kids' own. Katie is 13 and in 7th grade. Luke is 10 and in 4th grade.
