About Us



Sara LaFountain is the owner and creator of the blog Cook With 5 Kids. This blog originated as an online recipe box in 2010. Sara has two degrees in Education from Boston University. Besides being a blogger, Sara has also been a Kindergarten teacher, a Nanny, a preschool teacher, a caterer, a school lunch provider, and an office manager.

Sara is Mom to four boys and one little girl. You will usually find our family in the kitchen. When we are not cooking we love to play board games, take photographs, play video games, and use the latest technology.

Dad is the resident recipe taster and helper extraordinaire. Dad juggles a full-time job in the Education field and helps with the blog on the backend. Dad is very good at solving problems and somehow has perfected the art of being good at everything.

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

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

The youngest boy is the resident blog/tech guru. He knows coding better than most adults. He is in charge of all plugins, codes and blog posts. Any technical questions are directed right at him. He is also our technology and gaming expert and loves to explore all new pieces of cool technology.  He has had two blogs of his own, moderates an enormous Minecraft server, and enjoys helping other Moms with their blogs. Email him with any blog or technology questions.

The little girl of our 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 loves to play golf. She is also our dog whisperer. Any dog she meets she has to stop, talk to, pet, and whisper in their ear. She is also the star of most of our Youtube videos.

Sara and her family love to review new products. If you have a product that you would like us to review that is in any of these categories, please send us an email: Green living, travel, technology, toys, apps, games, healthy foods, and any new cooking products. a

Sara lives in the DC Metro area with her family and one awesome rescue dog named Molly.  Please email Sara with any questions: cookwith5kids@gmail.com
