[Cover photo by 2bizzy.] This cookbook contains recipes for food made up to look like something else (people, animals, flowers, etc.). Some additional figures of this sort can be found in Nana Lee's Lee's April Fools Day Fun .
This would make a great treat for children on April Fools day or any time for that matter. I got it from a Family Fun Magazine and love the simplicity of the recipe and how much fun the kids have with it.
That's right folks, the Jimmy Buffett fan in me is sharing a "Buffett-inspired" recipe to get into the "swing of things" and gear up for tailgating season. Also lots of fun for kids' snacks or barbecues. I saw this in a little shop in Estes Park, CO and tried out some things to make a "copy" when I got home.
Everyone knows you shouldn't eat yellow snow, but kids and grownups alike will get a kick out of making an exception in this case. This is an original recipe, developed with love to celebrate the snow on my son's January birthday! Quick, easy and fun to make on a snowy day, lemon cake mix is a shortcut to tangy cookies that look as sweet as they taste. These snowmen will disappear even faster than the fellas outdoors!
These squiggly little sandwiches are almost too cute to eat, but budding entomologists gobble them up with enthusiasm! They look great on small rectangular plates and kids just love them. This is a great recipe for kids of all ages to help prepare. They take about 20 minutes to assemble….and minutes to devour.
The cutest, delicate mice you ever saw! Everyone remarks about them. I give trays of assorted cookies each year and place them on top. They just make it! It actually is a help when the kids can put on the almonds. I don't remember where I got the recipe, so I gave the best measurements I can recall. It sounds like it could be a Hershey's recipe!? For adults you can strain the cherries, then add rum or almond liquor and soak overnight drain and dry proceed with recipe. Save the rum for drinks.
My mum found this recipe somewhere, and I made it last weekend for a family get-together, It was a huge hit. I wanted to share before the 4th of July holiday comes up. Very refreshing, lovely summer dessert.
A Christmas MUST!!!!! These really need to be made with solo almond fillng not almond paste. I made bought ways and the paste is no way as tender as made with the solo fillng. http://www.solofoods.com/cprod.html
Check these out before you say GROSS!! They're not what you think....Honest. I had these a while back at my stamp club, courtesy of another stamper. They are so popular around here right now that you can't find the pretzel rings or Hugs just anywhere. Hope you'll try them too! They're so simple, I'm kinda ashamed to call it a recipe.........
ZWT MidAtlantic for the chocolate
Build an Oreo turkey with Oreos, candy and frosting. This would be a fun activity for (school-age) kids at a Thanksgiving gathering to put these together. They can display them at their dinner place and eat them for dessert....if they can wait that long. The recipe I am listing will be to make one dozen turkeys.
