Where to eat in Fort Worth with kids

It's no secret that Fort Worth is one of our favorite quick getaway spots for a long weekend (check out this downtown Fort Worth hotel we stayed at). The more we go,we love Fort Worth. And it always surprises us that it's a short thirty minute drive from Dallas. The burgeoning restaurant scene leaves us yearning for the next visit. To make the most of our getaway, we sandwich in a brunch and an early dinner with a trip to a museum. We've snooped about and listed some of our favorite kid-friendly eateries in Fort Worth:

DoorDash helps families do the legwork at meal times

Happy Birthday DoorDash! The food delivery service turns one in Dallas and is now expanding into areas like Fort Worth and Arlington. Recently DoorDash invited IttyBittyFoodies to try their service and we jumped up and down at the thought of having a hot meal all prepared for us. If your household is anything like mine, the time leading up to family meal times are always a little like driving in Asia on the wrong side of the road without a road map for us. Three rambunctious boys turn into Gremlins around 4pm and somehow we muddle through to get dinner on the table. It's one of the reasons why IttyBittyFoodies recipes are designed to get you in and out of the kitchen in thirty minutes or less. However, our first DoorDash experience did not go as expected. For full disclosure, DoorDash provided us with a meal up to $50, all opinions are my own (as always) so read on to see hear this tale of two DoorDash deliveries.

The Strawberry Shortcake I never knew

Summer is here and it's time to celebrate America's favorite summertime dessert -- the strawberry shortcake. June 14th is National Strawberry Shortcake Day. But for a girl who grew up in Australia without this iconic American dessert, I don't have a point of reference for strawberry shortcake, except maybe images of a doll my sister used to play with. Our IttyBittyFoodies boys are Americans so we're adding strawberry shortcake to our list of American traditions (see Macy's Culinary Council's Strawberry Shortcake with Slow Roasted Strawberries and Chantilly Cream below). To kick off our summer plans, we'll be zipping off to Union Square in San Francisco this June 14th for Macy's American Icons event to celebrate National Strawberry Shortcake Day!

Pretty Pantone trend for Mother’s Day Gifts

Thanks to Pantone, the latest color trend evokes tranquility which is perfect for Mother's Day gifts. The Pantone Color Institute's announcement of not one but two colors for their Pantone Color of the Year was unprecedented this year. The harmonious pairing of two complimentary colors Serenity and Rose Quartz makes for the prettiest color trend for 2016. Serenity, a soft blue representing the weightlessness and calming qualities of the sky; and Rose Quartz, a gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. My full article appears in the Dallas Morning News this week with Pantone Color of the Year themed gift ideas from many of my favorite places in Dallas. But here's a gallery below to get inspired and add a little zen and bliss in Mother's Day gifts!
