Turn an ordinary banana into a cute caterpillar that the kids will eat up as an after school snack, a bedtime treat or as an accompaniment to a sandwich at lunch. By the Editors of Easy Home Cooking Magazine.
This is a great, light pasta dish with very little oil. Please note to adjust the cooking time if using pasta other than spaghetti. I often omit the olives due to a daughter that doesn't like them and it's still fabulous. You can also adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to your liking. Another variation is to use cherry tomatoes, halved instead of regular tomatoes. My family really enjoys this dish, hope you do too!!
For this delicious fresh-tasting soup, use your favorite apple rather than a cooking variety, which will give too tart a flavor. This soup is the perfect choice for the starte of a special-occasion meal or as part of a light lunch. Taken from "The Best Ever Low Fat" cookbook. Note: you can also substitute 1 large peeled and chopped potato instead of the celery and garnish with sprigs of parsley.
Nice healthy dip for kids to dip apple slices into. It would also be nice to serve at the kid's appetizer table at your next function. After school snack, accompanying a sandwich...they're gonna love it! Taken from healthykids.com.
