Tastes from Childhood
by Susie E. Caron © 9/20/15
Do you recall some of the wonderful things you ate during your childhood? The changing seasons or holidays bring to mind the sights, tastes, and aromas of things cooking, or meals shared with loved ones. Memories like these are precious and we love to share them. However, in our busied lives sometimes we think, "Oh I'll bake that next year." or, "I should get that recipe from Auntie soon." or, "I'll put this in a cookbook to give to my kids when I retire."
What if you could easily do it now?
What if you could enjoy those tastes you remember again, and pass them along to loved ones?
That's why, in addition to my parenting articles, I've decided to add a regular blog article every month to a category I call Tastes From Childhood. In it I will share some of my recipes and memories, and I will give you opportunities to share some of yours! That’s right!!! You can submit your tasty memories by Guest Blogging right here. That way you can share your favorite food memories with your family and friends without having to cook or bake anything. Of course, you could bake, cook, or prepare it so you can share with your family. Then remember to send your photo of your food along with your guest blog. I'll provide some questions below, about the food, your memories about it, who introduced you to it, and why the memory is dear to you. How's that sound? If you are interested, see the rules below, and contact me at the following email address. firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the rules:
(Rules will continue to be available under the Guest Post tab above.)
Provide me with your name and email address. (Your email address will be kept confidential and will not be published, sold or shared with anyone.)
Send your short article 500-600 words along with the following:
1. title of your recipe or tasty food memory
2. your name or user name to post with your article.
3. a photo of the food, or of your family members enjoy it, (only with their permission please.)
4. the recipe and any special instructions needed to make it perfect.
Here are some questions you may want to answer, but feel free to be creative.
Please note: This is a family oriented and G rated site. I reserve the right to accept or decline guest blogs based on content and suitability. (If needed, I will edit for misspelling, punctuation, etc.) If your article is accepted I will try to post your guest blog based upon best time of year or holiday, if applicable. (That way you can send me holiday and seasonal articles months ahead if you wish.)
By submitting your recipe, photo and article you give me the right to post it on my blog on the scheduled date, as well as to re-post it at any time in the future. If you do not want to agree to this please do not send an article.
You will be notified when I receive your article and again when accepted, along with the date I plan to post it.
Special note to help you share your article: When your article is posted and you want to share your article with family and friends, you just click on your specific title (not the category). At the top in the address bar you will see a URL. Click on that to high-light it. Now copy it and paste it on your personal copy of the article (in Word) That is the specific address you will want to share with friends, family, on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc. Of course you can shorten it, by pasting it into a URL shortener such as GoogleURLShortener and more easily share that link instead.
Thank you for reading. I look forward to posting your articles, recipes and photos soon. Hurry because the available dates will fill up fast. Here is my email again:

Cooking Up Memories!
Susie E. Caron
These are from my former life with many current memories and helps for parents.
I retired from teaching, became a psychotherapist treating children and families and an author. After retiring I became a full time artist.
I recently reopened this parenting blog because I believe wisdom is to be shared.
Author of Chidren's Books,
Christian, Wife, & Mother, I want to help you build parent-child relationships, 1 blog, & books at a time.
When I'm not busy creating articles or paintings, you might find me looking for dark chocolate or playing with my Boxer, Josie.
These articles are for educational and self-help purposes only and are not intended as psychotherapy.
If you experience unusual symptoms or discomfort please see your medical or mental health practitioner.

Just wanted to say that I love your posts about the different ways to connect/relate/understand your child. It has given me a new approach towards understanding my daughter and allowing HER to tell me how she feels instead of me suggesting to her how she should feel. Thanks Susie!
