We are definitely going through a stage where Morgan isn't that interested in eating his vegetables. This little Terp Toddler (now preschooler) used to eat Thai, Cuban, Japanese cuisines (to name a few) and now he really isn't interested in anything that doesn't have peanut butter smeared all over it. This culinary pickiness must be coming from his Dad because I ate everything as a kid :) Can anyone else out there relate?
I have been testing out different recipes that incorporate vegetables into our diets but kinda hides the fact they are there. The first recipe I'm going to share is an Avocado Fudgsicle recipe from Eliot's Eats. Morgie looks a little skeptical doesn't he? Maybe he's mirroring the thoughts that are popping into your head as you ponder the idea of what an avocado fudgsicle tastes like? But the proof is in the pudding kids.
He can't get enough of them. It's a win-win (without a power-struggle). I'm pretty sure we are on to something :)
After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at Seeded at the Table. I think it's right on the money!
Bobby Flay's Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut recipe came highly recommended from my soccer friend Little Lisa. She has very good taste in EVERYTHING so I knew I had to try it after she raved one night before stepping out on the field. Easy to make and bursting with flavor, this fresh fish dish is a keeper!
Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.
I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon!
First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch!
