My name is Tiffany and I've spent the last 12 years sharing simple seasonal recipes for busy families that want to make mealtime a little more fun. As the mom of two growing girls, I know that no matter how crazy our schedules get, nothing is more important than connecting with your kids at the end of the day.
Welcome to Peanut Blossom, where you'll find plenty of inspiration for any meal or occasion with hundreds of kid-tested recipes and easy tips for making every celebration special.
ABOUT PEANUT BLOSSOM
How It All Started
Why “Peanut Blossom?” I have affectionately referred to my babies as "The Peanut" and "Little Pea" starting with my very first post. I believe that all of my creative endeavors in the kitchen have "Blossomed" as I cooked countless meals for my family over the last two decades.
As soon as my girls could stand on a chair to reach the kitchen counter, I handed them a spoon and invited them to help me play with new recipes to make tasty dishes.
As our skills developed, I continued to share our kitchen adventures and experiments and now over a decade later, millions of readers have cooked our favorite recipes for their own precious families.
What started as a way to catalog my favorite memories with my girls grew into two bestselling cookbooks for families, with a third one coming this fall!
Check out my cookbooks for kids!
I am pleased as punch to be the author of two 5-star rated cookbooks for kids:
The Ultimate Kids' Cookbook is filled with 75 recipes to inspire kids to get in the kitchen with their parents and get a delicious one-pot recipe on the table the whole family will love. Get all the details here.
About Tiffany Dahle
Founder of Peanut Blossom
I'm the girl who couldn't boil water when she first got married. My dear husband endured years of meals made with trial-by-fire cooking "lessons" as I learned my way through the kitchen.
Earning every last kitchen skill on my own has given me a deep passion for and understanding of other beginner bakers. I try to write my recipes as clearly as I would if I were explaining them to my very own daughters when they try to recreate a special meal for the first time.
I have definitely earned my badge as expert family cook. I test each and every recipe on this site under real-world conditions. These are the actual dishes I'm serving on a random Tuesday evening or to my extended family on Christmas Eve.
If my family doesn't love it, it doesn't go up on the site. With one super-picky eater and a veggie-averse husband at my table, I can't think of a better test than that.
I received my degree from the University of Wisconsin in Journalism - Advertising. My first job out of school took me to Milan, Italy where I was forever-changed by the glorious food culture there.
Though I grew up in the midwest, my husband and I now live in Charlotte, North Carolina with our two daughters.
As Seen On:
Did you know I host the best online book club?
While I adore helping you feed your family, I'm just as interested in helping to feed your soul. As a lifelong book lover, I launched the Peanut Blossom Book Club for Recovering Readers to inspire women to take a little time just for themselves. Our special group now has a staggering 7,000+ members.
Together, we read one fun, light-hearted book each month and chat about it in our private Facebook group. We would love to have you join us!
