Mommy discovered this little trick last year: if you cut into a bell pepper, you may find a Mickey Mouse! But, sometimes the shapes look like other things: a flower, a camel, Crater Lake, etc. That's the surprise! Finding the Hidden Mickey in a bell pepper!
I had a recipe book for kids when I was young. I have since lost that book but I remember this recipe well as it was one of my favorites. For kids too young to use a knife they can just use a plastic apple corer and then stuff the toppings inside the apple.
Although there are several recipes for Cajun flavored popcorn posted, this fiery blend has a unique combination of spices. Use this on your favorite popcorn popped in a microwave, on the stove or using popcorn popper. You will need a little moisture to get the spices to adhere, the choice (butter, margarine or a low calorie butter substitute) is yours. Store the spice in a air-tight container as you would other spice blends.
I made these fun little guys for my 14 mo. old nephew and they were perfect! Being so young, it was better for him to eat a "Jello orange" than a real one. These were a hit with the whole family--not just the kids! Originally I found the recipe somewhere online, and I have found that its best to keep to the orange flavors, as other rinds have a more bitter taste that changes the taste of the Jello.
I just discovered Kiwi and bananas go together very well. This is pretty versatile-the banana can be adjusted for how thick you like your shakes. I'm still experimenting, so let me know how to improve this.
It's just not fair for kids who hate some of those "adult" appetizers that have fancy stuff on them like olives and Brie and other stuff they've never tasted or even heard of. This will suit their taste buds and even be "fancy" enough to make them feel all grown up. It's cheap and easy enough for Mom to throw together for play dates or when a friend drops by with their kids in tow. Also easy enough to substitute diabetic jam for a sweet treat for those who have to go sugarless.
Oh LORD, have mercy! LOL! This stuff is the kind-of snack you sit down in front of the tv with and you look down and it's all gone! The best part about this recipe is (other than the end product) the fact no candy thermometer is necessary.
Fun to make and eat! A great protein-filled nutritious snack for kids. Easy to make; fun for the kids to help. My 5 y/o loves them. This recipe is courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens "Kids Snacks" cookbook, 1985. ***Do not feed honey to anyone under the age of 1 years old, due to the possibility of an allergic reaction.
This is based on the recipe by Bob Blumer from the "Surreal Gourmet Bites" cookbook. This simple caramelization method transforms this much maligned veggie into a knock-your-socks-off side dish or sweet snack that you won't be able to get enough of!
