Broccoli Bites for Kids

Broccoli Bites for Kids
File this under the Onion Soup Mix Recipe category, though there is no Lipton onion soup mix in site. I may even serve these at my next dinner party, they were that good! While babysitting for my 6 year old picky eater niece, I had to come up with a good lunch that would be fun for the two of us to make together. She is not a big broccoli fan (or any vegetable fan), but I told her we would add melted gooey cheese and form the patties with our hands. She was sold. Please don't laugh when you read this recipe, it is terrific and easy. I made it my own by adding homemade breadcrumbs and fresh chopped steamed broccoli along with lowfat mozzarella cheese mixed with the cheddar. Broccoli Cheese Bites (adapted from My Tasty Treasures & WholeSomeBabyFood.com): 16 oz. package of frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained of liquid (I used fresh steamed broccoli) 1 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese 3 eggs salt & pepper 1 cup of seasoned Italian breadcrumbs Let cool and enjoy!

Vermicelli Noodle Salad - Dirty Gourmet Vermicelli Noodle Salad 2 Comments » | Posted by Mai-yan on Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 Here is the recipe for the Vermicelli Noodle Salad that went with the Asian Wraps we posted last week. It was adapted from Guy Fieri’s Dang Cold Asian Noodle Salad. This salad is great extra cold and on its own as a light meal on a hot day, though we did put it inside our wraps when we were starving. This is another make-at-home meal that will thrill you to have out of the way so you can focus on the things your trip is really about. Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip There’s one appetizer that, if all else fails, we WILL order at a restaurant: spinach artichoke dip. Hey, it’s what we do. We look at other options and then go with the one that we know we’ll both love and consume way too much of. What’s wrong with that? Nothing.

Eat Well, Spend Less: The Art of Back-to-School Lunches This month’s Eat Well, Spend Less topic is all about back-to-school, from breakfast to creative lunch ideas to easy snacks to last-minute dinners. We’re breaking down the process of how to feed those school-bound mouths. In exactly 13 days, I will be getting ready to pack the first school lunches of the year. This year, Lene is joining the ranks of school-bound kids, which leaves me with three lunches that need packing five times a week. While this can be a bit overwhelming, I instead look at it as an exciting challenge, a chance to prove I can provide for those children I birthed, a stepping stone towards…Let’s get real. Packing lunches is not one of my favored activities.

Sand and Sea Beach Cupcakes I’m usually not one to do themed cupcakes unless they are really easy, and these are. I made lemon flavored cupcakes just by using store bought cake mix and then a simple homemade buttercream. You don’t even need a pastry bag to frost the cupcakes, this recipe only requires a butter knife. Melt-in-your-mouth Homemade Cheese Crackers! « In the kitchen with Kath By Kath Dedon a Cheese crackers! Who doesn’t love them? I had some Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar and decided I’d try to make my own. I adapted Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for Cheese Straws (which Deb adapted from The Lee Bros.

Take-Out, Fake-Out: Sweet & Sour Chicken It’s easy to make the popular take out sweet & sour chicken at home We made it to Friday! Finally. I swear this week couldn’t have been any longer. baked kale chips I could never get into kale. Heck, I’ve long been timid about greens in general — the delicate ones like baby spinach and arugula were easy but as soon as things got a little heavier, I got nervous. When I finally found a respectable green I found palatable — Swiss chard, which I think of as the green for spinach people — I went to town with it: a tart, a spaghetti dish and then gratin.

Back to School Lunch Ideas and No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies It’s been one week of packing lunches and I feel like my head is spinning. There’s so much to do in the mornings to get my girls off to school, but I think we worked the kinks out and will settle into a routine shortly. The girls love their new stainless steel thermoses. I’ve been making larger dinners so they can heat up the leftovers in the morning and take them in a thermos.

Mexican Hot Chocolate: Melted Ice Cream, Cinnamon, & Holiday Spice Mexican chocolate is a true indulgence — rich and thick with a touch of cinnamon flavor. When you take such a wonder, mix it with melted ice cream, and serve it steaming on a chilly winter evening, well…you might just start serenading your mug with mariachi music. While you can serve a cup of this Mexican Hot Chocolate all by its lonesome, I happen to think a dollop of Cayenne-spiced Dulce de Leche cream seriously turns up the heat on this addictively-warm beverage, elevating it from ‘dang good’ to ‘muy, muy delicioso!’ Guacamummus or Hummamole (Avocado Hummus) Recipe Guacamummus or Hummamole (Avocado Hummus) So…what’s a girl to do when gorgeous, big, ripe avocados are on sale during “Hip Hip for Hummus Week”? Make guacamumus! Or hummamole! (Or if you really want to be boring – avocado hummus.) :) Whatever you want to call it, this fantastic marriage of my two favorite dips — hummus and guacamole — is definitely a winner.

bake sale week: raspberry lemonade bars I know this seems like a bit of a cop out, seeing as last year I made those lime bars, but the name of these just makes you want one, doesn’t it? It’s like one last throw back to the summertime captured in a cookie. raspberry lemonade bars for the crust: 9 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick, plus one tablespoon) 1/4 cup (50g) superfine sugar (or regular granulated) 1 cup (100g) of unbleached all-purpose flour pinch salt for the filling: 1 1/2 cups (287g) superfine sugar (or regular granulated) 3 egg whites 1 egg 2/3 cup (150mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 3 lemons) 2 tablespoons lemon zest (from 2 lemons) 2/3 cup (65g) unbleached, all-purpose flour pinch of salt 1-2 cups (150-275g) of frozen raspberries, defrosted 1 tablespoon confectioner’s sugar

Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Leather Maddy has been on a “fruit roll-ups” kick lately. Not the actual name brand kind that I so vividly remember peeling away from a cellophane wrapper when I was a kid. No, Maddy’s been eating the Gerber toddler kind.
