Aimee from Under the High Chair understands how frustrating it can be to browse through a delicious array of food blogs on an empty stomach. I have to say what’s equally as difficult is going grocery shopping when the hunger pangs kick in! Try to stay in your budget under those conditions and you’ll find it nearly impossible!
It’s a good thing Aimee posted a recipe that’s droll worthy and not impossible to put together. Going with the Peach Cobbler recipe in Everyday Baking was a great idea, Aimee! We won’t have to raid the grocery store shelves if we want to create this dessert, all we have to do is use some of the ingredients we already have at home.
This is exactly what Aimee did. Using the peaches she already had at home, Aimee made the perfect peach cobbler. The recipe she used is traditional and just the right amount of sweet, it’s a classic that can easily be revisited time and time again .
Tofu doesn’t always get the credit it deserves. If you’re looking for a meat alternative that’s lean, then tofu is it. It doesn’t have any saturated fat or cholesterol. As a result, you can eat it without having to worry about the effects it will have on your heart. It’s fun texture is what distinguishes it from most meats, and because it has such a mild taste, it takes on flavors and seasonings well.
The name of Erika’s recipe, Golden Bowl, is fitting. Cooked up with veggies like bell pepper and broccoli, this is a meal you’ll want to eat when you’re overworked and tired. Why? Well, you’re going to need all the vitamin C you can get to boost your immune system, and bell pepper has plenty of it. Plus, Erika’s Golden Bowl will be ready for you to eat in no time, since it’s an enjoyable meal that comes together quickly.
Erika’s Golden Bowl isn’t the only healthy recipe she’s developed, she has plenty more on her blog Tummy Treasure!
One of the best things about the Fall season is the sense of community and gathering. Whether you find yourself gathering around the TV to watch the football game or at the dinner table for a delicious meal together, the Fall is full of opportunities to unite with the ones we love.
After spending an afternoon golfing and grilling steaks with buddies Dave got to thinking about other community cookouts. The first idea to pop into Dave’s mind was a shrimp boil, so he headed to the hardware store to pick up the biggest pot he could find. He quickly found everything he needed, including this tasty shrimp boil recipe right on the box! This recipe is full of flavor, and the hint of spice from the Serrano peppers is balanced perfectly by the addition of sweet corn.
Gather your friends and family together for a weekend of tailgating with Dave’s tasty shrimp boil and be sure to check out his blog, BBQ, Wine and the Good Life with Saucy Joe!
Feeding children a nutritious meal can be one of those most difficult tasks in life. Parents are forced to exhaust every possible method for sneaking fruits and vegetables into their kiddos mouths. When Sarah’s little boy reached this stubborn eating phase she got creative blending up smoothies, making berry sauce for pancakes, and serving ketchup with green beans… or shall I say “green bean fries.”
Sarah admits that “assuming that your kids will enjoy the same things you yourself like is one of life’s biggest fallacies.” Even though her children despise the very foods she and her husband love, she sees no reason to compromise nutrition and flavor for their picky palates. Her blog, Recipes for a Postmodern Planet, contains recipes that are both delicious and kid friendly. For example, Sarah’s simple green bean recipe makes for a tasty and simple side dish, and with a simple squirt of organic ketchup… presto!…. green bean fries are served!
What are some creative dishes you have come up with to trick your kids into eating healthy?
