The first dinner to be served to a kiddo with a mouth full of new hardware needs to be yummy & soft. So guess what I came up with?? Cheeseburger Potato Soup! Now, this may sound strange – but, when I think of cheesy potato soup, I immediately think of opportunity. That is right – opportunity to disguise and hide healthy ingredients. Continue reading
…it means you are starting dinner too late and speed cooking a big pizza pie – that’s amore´. It’s also amore´ because it’s quick and simple and under 10 ingredients!! Oh and it’s a healthy ninja recipe too!!
I suppose it’s all my fault. Or at least stating that makes it not seem so bad.
Well, this makes my mouth water just thinking about it! Every time I make it, the kids chant “Taco Tico YAHYAHYAH!! Taco Tico YAHYAHYAH!!” over and over. I think it’s cute and funny for about one minute.

Now, I personally like asparagus or else I would NEVER buy it. (hah)
But, I have a dream, it’s a little dream – but a dream. A dream that I can make one meal and we all eat in peace, young and old, boy and girl, mom and dad. That the color of food isn’t what matters, but that each color and shape is given equal opportunity to be eaten and … even enjoyed. That the dinner table can be a place where tears and discontent do not show their ugly faces. Rather, dinner is filled with laughter and joy and even peace.
This recipe has been a breath of fresh air into a much needed morning routine. I don’t know, I may be the only one who struggles to
force-feed offer my children healthy food in the mornings. I have blended, I have toasted, I have mixed, stirred—and waved the white flag of surrender. They ((my herd of 4)) have eaten pop strudels, fruity sugar O’s, chocolate coated sucrose bombs – happily. Yeah, they were happy & I felt guilty. Continue reading
Hello friends. Wow is the first word that comes to mind. Funny thing though, as I was typing “WOW” out came “WOE”. And I think to myself, that pretty much sums it up. Continue reading
