Homemade Chicken Nuggets By Lisa, on October 14th, 2010 Even before we started eating real food I always thought that homemade chicken nuggets tasted much better than what you can get at most restaurants and grocery stores. And the best part is…you can freeze the leftovers! So if you are in a rush simply pull a few pre-made nuggets out of the freezer and microwave them for 30 – 60 seconds for a quick and guilt-free dinner. In our house this is the kind of “kids’ meal” that is so good the whole family eats it together. This recipe is also fairly easy once you have the breadcrumbs made. Homemade Chicken Nuggets 1 lb local or organic boneless skinless chicken breasts1 egg1 cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs¼ cup grated parmesan cheese½ teaspoon paprika½ teaspoon garlic powderSalt and pepper to tasteCooking oil Posts may contain affiliate links.

Sweet Potato Souffle When I think of Thanksgiving dinner, I immediately think about my beloved Sweet Potato Soufflé. We have never missed a year together (except for this year because I’m going to the beach, so I decided to make it a couple of weeks early and I’ve been savoring the left-overs all week). Maybe it’s not technically a soufflé but if given the choice between a sweet potato soufflé and a sweet potato casserole… soufflé. casserole. soufflé. casserole. I’ll let you decide. (I had to ask my French-speaking husband how to get that cool “é” in there. Have I ever told you how sexy he is?) Start with an amazingly healthy vegetable. I like to roast my sweet potatoes in the oven instead of boiling them. Then you’ll mash them up and add the rest of the ingredients to the filling: butter, salt, brown sugar, eggs and evaporated milk. I almost don’t have words for this topping. Sprinkle it on top of the sweet potato mixture and cook at 350°F for about 25 minutes. Ingredients Instructions Like This Post?

Homemade fruit leather Today’s post from Rachel just screams back to school to me. Fruit roll ups were one of the few “normal” kid snacks my mom actually bought for us. I might’ve been that kid with whole wheat sandwiches, fruit as “dessert” and carrot sticks on the side but occasionally, I did get fruit roll ups. Those were the days I didn’t have to hide my totally uncool lunch from friends and sit in the corner. Ok, slight exaggeration but carrot sticks were embarrassing. Seriously. Rachel is a mom of three and her oldest just started kindergarten this year. Happy snacking! Hi! So while she’s away… I really wanted to play and be naughty. This is my third fruit leather to date and I can pretty much guarantee that there will be many more varieties to come. But okay… one day my bananas were going bad.
