About Me



Sara LaFountain is the owner and creator of the blog Cook With 5 Kids. Sara has been blogging since 2010. Sara studied at Boston University and earned two degrees in Education. Some of her jobs have included Kindergarten teacher, Nanny, preschool teacher, caterer, school lunch provider, and office manager.

The family is made up of four boys, tween to teenage, and one little girl.  We enjoy cooking together, playing board games or video games, and using the latest technology. Life is a roller coaster over here, so jump in and enjoy the ride.

Dad is the resident recipe taster and helper extraordinaire.  Dad juggles a full time job and helps with the blog on the backend. Dad is very good and solving problems and somehow being good at everything.

Sara’s oldest son is the chef. He loves to cook, teach the family cooking tips, and creates many of the beautiful and delicious food you see on the blog. Chef says that the food must look beautiful because you eat with your eyes first. Dinner is often cold while the chef creates a beautiful plate for each person. Chef also has a full time job as a school lunch provider and caterer.

Two of the teens in the family have an illness called POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) and much of Sara’s time is devoted to helping them.  Sara will be posting about POTS to help other families who are struggling with the same health issues.

The tween is the resident tech/blog guru. He knows coding better than most adults. He is in charge of all plugins, codes and blog posts. Any technical questions should be directed to him.  The tween is our technology and gaming expert and loves to explore any new piece of cool technology.  He has had two blogs of his own and he enjoys helping other Moms with their blogs. Email him, [email protected] with any blog or technology questions.

The little girl of the house is the cruise director.  She organizes meals, sets the table with seat assignments, cooks some of the food, and is always rounding up players for games. In her spare time she likes to play golf.  She also is a dog whisperer, any dog she meets she has to stop, talk to, pet, and whisper in their ear.  She is the star of our Youtube videos.

Sara and her family love to review new products. Green living, technology, toys, apps, games, healthy foods, and any new cooking products are all areas of focus for the blog. Sara lives in the DC Metro area with her family and one awesome rescue dog named Molly.  Please email Sara with any questions: [email protected]
