Tina and Lillian are two women who have worked together for years in the “serious business world” before they decided that they were going to leave their corporate jobs and open up a healthy children’s cooking school, inspired by their own children and the desire to teach them about healthy eating/cooking from an early age.

" In fact, we were just asking her that very thing the other day and it was quite frightening because she kept avoiding the question. "You're avoiding the question! " Potato chip cookies. When I was in the 4th grade, my lunch table mates had a habit of taking the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that their mothers had lovingly prepared, (trimmed of crusts, devoid of frights like gloppy grape jelly) opening them up, arranging some potato chips over the filling and smooshing the sides back together again before eating them.

It’s a sticky thing, of course, because the originals earned their prized state for being blissful the way they are. But I can’t help it–I see a twist, a curve, a departure, or in this case, once again, a grater and I can’t resist.
