I am a firm believer that if kids grow it they will eat it.
However, it’s still fun to find “sneaky” ways to disguise vegetables into tasty treats. A healthy dose of carrot cupcakes is always a fun way to use the root vegetables and actually a common cake flavor today. However, topping it with a tomato frosting is a bit shocking and surprisingly yummy!
Try serving the carrot cupcake with tomato frosting as a side dish at dinner and surprise them when you tell them it’s their side of vegetables. Of course, I would also include the raw versions of the vegetables on the plate too and ask them to compare and contrast the flavor profiles between them. But that’s me!!!
(Like how I incorporated everything yummy?)
There are so many tasty ways to celebrate America’s Independence Day! Fresh fruit straight from the garden (or even market) is topping my family’s list. It’s colorful, sweet, and always refreshing on a hot summer day!
Throw the word “pizza” onto the dessert menu and you’ll have everyone running, including the cat, to get some! Can you blame Kitty? This looks so good and is such a cute picture! Mmmmmmmm!
Here’s how you can make your own yummy bite!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, or whatever is listed on the cookie dough package. Then spray a 12-inch pizza pan with nonstick spray.
While it cools, mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and lemon peel. Stir it until it’s nice and fluffy. Probably about 2 minutes will do it. Now spread it on top of the baked cookie. Cover the entire thing.
If your kids don’t know how to draw a star yet, give them a hand. Err, I mean a finger. Trace the star out into the dough. This is going to be your guideline for placing the fruit.
For an extra bonus, pour a few mini-chocolate chips on top of the smoothie mixture before placing it in the freezer. This is an extremely healthy snack so a couple morsels of chocolate are okay and they’re a really yummy surprise!
Also, these rocket popsicle molds are made by Tovolo (www.tovolo.com).
I love the variety of the mold shapes available and the ease of the popsicles release from the molds. Plus, who doesn't like a rocket pop?
