As a family with 6 children it has been a challenge to suit everyone's palate. Instead of figuring it out, which was impossible, my husband and I decided to work at expanding them. We stopped serving several different versions of dinner and kept throwing new stuff at them. Surprisingly, it has worked. Hm. We live in a cozy log house in Alaska, run sled dogs, have constant company(who doesn't want to visit Alaska?), and love to cook together.
