From our "Cool Stuff Playschool Parents Get Up To" file, we bring you Playschool Mom Mahy and her online enterprise, Two Purple Figs. Mahy is a recipe developer, food stylist, culinary instructor, photographer, wife and busy mom, and she's doing it all on her site with new recipes all the time, fantastic photography to tempt you to try them—and oh, the rewards of actually doing so (i.e. the eating. Her Sweet Potato Black Bean Soup blew my mind!).
As you'd expect from a food blogger who's also a mom, there are plenty of great kid and family friendly recipes to try. We've become particularly fond of her Instant Chia Chocolate Pudding at our house, a really easy, delicious and nutritious chocolate treat. I sent it to Playschool too during the week I was on snack duty, and it went over a charm. The kids love it. And if you're requiring photographic proof of that, check out the photo on the right.
