We all know about the importance and benefits of family mealtime. What isn’t always talked about, is the memories created when families create meals together. The measuring, mixing, stirring, taste‐testing and spills is all part of the experience – even making a mess can be fun! The process of cooking together and the mess that comes along with it can be exhilarating.
Actor, dad, cookbook author and foodie Freddie Prize Jr. will show you his own “Messipies,” (aka messy recipes!) are one-of-a-kind recipes he created to bring families together in the kitchen. More than the average recipe, Freddie’s “Messipes” were created to encourage families to relish their time together and provide tips for fun, easy clean‐up after a night of making messy memories.
