Apple Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

by angelika on August 21, 2012

Apple cauliflower mac and cheese may, at first glance, seem a bit strange. It was born from my need to get more vegetables into Q, my picky eater. He loves mac and cheese like no other- so I had the idea to hide a small head of cauliflower in the cheese sauce. He was none […]


Strawberry Muffins

by angelika on February 23, 2012

Little Man and I were responsible for snack on Valentine’s Day at his school. He wanted to make a muffin, and I wanted something that seemed to say Valentine’s Day, in a healthy way. These muffins are great. Part whole wheat flour, fresh strawberries, and a little heart shaped strawberry laying on top.  Strawberry Muffins […]


Crunchy Chickpeas

by angelika on April 20, 2011

Are you looking for a healthy snack food, maybe to replace chips in your life? Me too. I love potato chips. And fries. My husband says I have a “special relationship” with potato products. Part of this relationship is the inability to do anything other than finish the whole bag. No matter how big it […]


Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

by angelika on April 17, 2011

Is there anything better than a chocolate chip cookie, warm and gooey, right out of the oven? A quick run to Target with Little Man allowed me to make a very exciting discovery. Target has the best prices on baking chocolate I have ever seen. Ever. We stocked up on Ghirardelli bars and threw a […]


Granola Bars

by angelika on April 9, 2011

Little Man and I made these granola bars yesterday, and boy were they good. I say were, as they only lasted the night! That’ll teach me to cut a recipe in half. These come together in a matter of minutes, and you can add in anything you have around. Super tasty, delicious chewy texture, and great […]


Pesto Polenta

by angelika on April 6, 2011

I made pesto pasta the other night, and tonight I was trying to figure out what to do with the left over pesto sauce. I am not one for leftovers usually, which I consider a less than desirable trait of mine. The thing is, once I have eaten a meal, I don’t usually want it […]


Whole Wheat Goldfish Crackers

by angelika on March 22, 2011

My kids love cheddar bunnies. All three of them. Wait you say… don’t you only have two kids? Why yes, you are right! But the biggest “kid” in my house loves the cheddar bunnies just as much, only difference is he can eat the whole box in one sitting! So when I came across the […]


Whole Wheat Pretzels

by angelika on March 10, 2011

It was our day to supply snack at preschool, and little man and I really enjoy making something together to offer his friends. One of our favorite snacks to bring is whole wheat pretzels. Our preschool is pretty strict about snack, only whole grain, no sugar, we’d appreciate it if you’d stick to organic fruits […]


Noodles in Peanut Sauce

by angelika on February 9, 2011

I am a huge lover of peanut sauce. I always order extra on the side whenever we eat Thai food. Personally, I think it goes with anything. Both of my kids are pretty skinny, so I am always looking for  rich and healthy foods that they will both eat. Peanut sauce is at the top […]


Blueberry Crumb Bars

by angelika on February 6, 2011

My husband took Little Man shopping yesterday, as they often do on a Saturday morning. They went and selected our groceries for the week, stopping at 3 different stores. Apparently Costco had these giant tubs (1.5lb) ¬†of organic blueberries for $7. (as my men remember, meaning it could have been anything from $5-$10) Little Man […]


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

by angelika on December 10, 2010

Is it too late for pumpkin? I don’t think so, it is a Thanksgiving sort of food, and we are not quite into winter yet, right? ¬†Either way, I have several cans of pumpkin in my cabinet that were begging to be used. It was also our turn to bring snack to school in celebration […]


Mac and Cheese

by angelika on November 27, 2010

Another dish we served at Little Man’s pirate party was “Buried Treasure Mac and Cheese”. I got small orecchiette pasta which sort of resembles doubloons or some kind of old world coin. As best as I could find anyway. Kids seem to universally love mac and cheese, but sadly many only have the pleasure of […]


Carrot Raisin Bread

by angelika on October 10, 2010

Is there anything better on a Sunday morning than a fresh baked loaf of bread smothered in farm fresh butter and cream cheese? I think not. One of my favorite weekend breads to make is a Carrot Raisin Bread that my whole family loves. This is a recipe I also send to school with Little Man when […]
