When we think of smoothies, we may think it's just for adults. But why? Smoothies are made up of fruits and vegetables. This is an even better way to sneak vegetables into your child's diet. All hidden in a smoothie! Here is a kid friendly green smoothie (tropical) to try with your kids.
Kids can be picky. I am lucky my kids are not picky and eat everything I make. However, there are days I make certain meals for my husband and I. There are meals that I know they may not be interested in and I don't feel like making extra food for no reason. There are also times when we order sushi or something the kids don't eat. I will say my oldest likes sushi but not all 3 kids do yet. Therefore, I may make something for the kids instead of ordering a bunch of different meals. I too enjoy these kid friendly meals. Here are 5 kid friendly meals to make any day of the week!
There are many nights, when I don't feel like cooking or my husband grabbed something to eat. Meaning I can make something small for me and the kids. The kids prefer bread meals since they are kids! Lucky me, because bread meals are pretty easy. Especially on weeknights when the kids are at after school activities. It's a lot of running around and so I always have naan at home just for these meals! Here are 7 Kid Friendly Naan Pizza Ideas to Try.
Last week I posted Everything But The Bagel Drumsticks. In that post I explained how to make drumsticks and my favorite dry rubs. This week I decided to show you how to make chicken wings, the easy way. I notice many people bake their chicken wings in sauces or fry them. Frying chicken wings are so delicious but the house smells and too much oil! I like to BROIL my wings and then add the sauce. You get a nice crispy and brown wing. Plus you get all the flavors in the sauce, without burning your wings! Add the sauce at the end and still get all the flavor! They are so good and easy to make! No need to guess if they are cooked through!
Winter holidays come with heavy meals. That is why fish is a good option. A fish you don't have quite often. The new year is here. Why not start off with a healthy meal to celebrate! I had wanted snapper for quite some time. When I called my local Whole Foods they told me they had 10 lbs of snapper in stock and that I should reserve the amount I wanted for pick up. I purchased 3 lbs and had it cleaned and filleted. My plan was to make snapper with pineapple salsa. This dish took me a total of 24 minutes, including the pineapple salsa. While the snapper was cooking, I made the salsa.
