‘Tis the season for truck loads of pumpkins.
I know most kids tend to think about only carving pumpkins, but don’t forget pumpkins are a vegetable too! They are totally edible! To prove my point we’re making
Once the fries are cut, throw them into a plastic zipper bag or bowl and mix them up with olive oil and salt. Place them onto a cookie sheet and bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Once they start turning brown, it’s time to pull the fries out of the oven and let them cool for a couple minutes.
As soon as my daughter took a bite she declared that her “taste buds were doing cartwheels!” I’ll take that food review any day!
We’re also created the traditional pumpkin pies and mashed pumpkin but these fries are our favorite!
Nutritional note: raw pumpkin only has 15 calories per ½ cup and is full of iron, zinc and fiber!
Having ice cold lemonade on a summer day is incredibly refreshing, and when the kids decide to have a lemonade stand, it's even sweeter.
We used to make our lemonade stronger than the recipe called for because when we poured it over ice it would get diluted or watered down. I loved the day a light bulb popped into my head and said “just make the ice cube stronger!” Wow! These are my favorite to include because they add to the flavor, they look really cool, and they’re fun to make.
(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.
