Cooking It Up With Dad - Encouraging Fathers One Meal At A Time

Cooking It Up With Dad is a relatively new blog that has joined Decency Publishing. Overall, the reception has been very positive. The goal of the blog is to encourage families to cook and eat together. No box foods and hurried eating. Just home cooked meals and the warmth of a family conversation.

Cooking It Up With Dad also tries to encourage fatherhood involvement. 26 million children come from homes without a father figure. I hope the blog can be an inspiration for dads to get actively involved in their child's life. (Well beyond cooking)

Food provides warmth and comfort. Research has shown that kids look to their dad as a protective layer for warmth and comfort. Over the coming months, we will be reaching out to fatherhood groups across New York State and the region to help inspire new dads to get in the game.

So, Cooking It Up With Dad is about cooking, and a whole lot more.
