The Genius Way To Sneak Healthy Food Into Your Kids’ Diets

My son, Bug, is a snackaholic.

No matter how much food I give him, he’s always on the prowl for more. He’s also very picky and likes variety. If he eats a cheese stick before lunch, he’ll want something crunchy in the afternoon. This is not a fight I’m going to win so I usually comply with his demands.

One night Bug had already devoured one of every snack in the house and I had no idea what to give him. Scanning the pantry I saw Cheerios, fruit snacks, cheese balls, animal crackers, Wheat Thins, and raisins. “Hmm,” I thought, “what would happen if I mix these all up in a bowl, would it pass the test?” READ MORE

    Fast and Easy Korean Beef Over Rice

    After years of throwing holy water on cooking like it was some vampire coming to kill me, a couple of years ago, I finally got into a cooking groove. I even *GASP* looked forward to it while also starting a food blog, which I’ve since abandoned.

    I discovered two things about cooking. You’ve got to LOVE what your cooking to really love cooking. For me, I loved the challenge of cooking food I thought would be difficult.

    My definition of “difficult” at the time was something beyond microwave nachos, frozen lasagna, and if I really went wild, making the exotic and way out there French toast. Adding bacon on the side made me feel like a goddamn gourmet. Pouring a glass of orange juice to go along with it and… BOOM, I’m a culinary genius. READ MORE

    Like Fall In Your Mouth: Crock Pot Walnut-Stuffed Glazed Apples

    Fall is right around the corner! That means it’s time to get ready for apple season. A few years ago I posted a Crock Pot Apple Cake recipe that went nearly viral. I hope this one is shared just as much because it’s low in fat, so easy to make, and one the whole family will enjoy. Crock Pot Walnut-Stuffed Glazed Apples come out tender (but not mushy) and will have your entire house smelling like a bakery (or apple farm).

    Serve these apples warm from the crock pot with low-fat frozen yogurt, ice cream, or side of low-fat coffee cake. Any apple variety does the trick but my favorites are Golden Delicious and Granny Smith. Enjoy! READ MORE
