    Oddly enough, all the kids love fish. Of my top recipes would be salmon patties and salmon paté. Both are prepared with a can of salmon, one egg and approximately 7 crackers. Mix the preparation well. For patties, simply form into patties and cook in a greased pan, serve with vegetables and any side and my kids all love it with lemon. For the paté, mix the preparation with mashed potatoes and mashed carrots (for 3 kids and one adult approx 4 medium sized potatoes and 2-3 carrots) and cook in the oven at 375 for approximately 20-25 minutes. I like to serve this with carrots and peas. Happy eating!

    We LOVE hummus here! We dip all sorts of breads and veggies into it, and almost always have some made.

    Into the food processor goes:

    3 cloves garlic
    1/3 cup tahini or peanut butter
    juice of 2 lemons
    1.5 tsp kosher salt
    2 cups/1 can chick peas
    2 tbsp of the liquid the chick peas came in

    Blitz it until it's smooth! YUM. It really doesn't get more delicious or healthy. All the kids love it. I sometimes add a few shakes of hot sauce if it's my older kids/husband eating it.

    For meals so far the little ones are not real picky,we will have anything form fish sticks and happy face potatoes,nuggets, lasagna, meat loaf etc.. although I find the 1 1/2 year old that used to eat everything is now loving the meat and straying from the veggies.Her older brother is terrible to get to eat veggies could this be her picking up on his behaviour?. Snacks they love their fruit, apple sauce or yogurt.I do a peanut free home as my god-daughter visits and has a peanut allergy so no monkey bars here lol although in the summer i make orange juice Popsicles they are a hit.

    If my child wants smt sweet i will cook pig pickin cake

    It is one of those favorite family cakes recipe you could bake instead of muffins and pancakes. I don’t know why it calls pig pickin pie. The top layer is orange as sunset because of frosting made of oranges and chocolate. It is moist and its taste is something you should definitely try it. Decorate it with peanut or candies.
