Fish Sticks, a follow up

Fish Sticks, a follow up

SUCCESS! My inspiration post last week was baked fish sticks. And they were a huge success with my daughter. She loved them. She ate all three sticks as pictured above, and some of the vegetables. And she wanted some more! These are quite easy to make. I used cream dory – next time I’ll try … Continue reading

Spaghetti and Meatballs, a follow up

Due to an unplanned, last-minute out of town trip, I wasn’t able to make this over the weekend. I just quite made this for lunch today, and I’m dismayed that I managed to somehow bungle a fairly straightforward, easy-to-follow recipe! I chose to follow Jamie Oliver’s recipe (see my inspiration post). As an aside, I … Continue reading

Inspiration for: Toddler Food: Fish Sticks

Inspiration for: Toddler Food: Fish Sticks

It’s fortunate that my daughter didn’t take after my husband, who doesn’t like fish. She eats them crunchy or otherwise, fried or steamed, with rice or on its own. As an alternative to chicken fingers, I thought I’d make her some fish sticks this week. These are a great source of protein but do read … Continue reading

Whole Wheat Pancakes, a follow up

There’s a book called “Pancakes, Pancakes!” by Eric Carlisle about a young boy named Jack, who wakes up hungry and in want of pancakes.

Great Kids Clothing Line

Great Kids Clothing Line

This is a quick blog post to simply talk about this department store brand of clothing for toddlers: Great Kids. They have such fun, brightly-colored clothing that I love to browse for items for my daughter. They’re so girlishly trendy too. I love the small details like the flowers, ruffles, and lace. I would consider … Continue reading

Potstickers, a follow up

So last week my inspiration post was for potstickers. Here’s how they turned out: Practice really does make perfect as they’re considerably better than my first batch, which I was so horrified with that I didn’t bother taking a picture of them. I’ve learned through experience not to put too much filling, to seal around … Continue reading

Chicken Nuggets, a follow up

Chicken Nuggets, a follow up

Here’s the result of the chicken nuggets (or popcorn, which ever you prefer) inspiration post. In three words: I Love Them. My custom recipe is as follows. I have to admit that the measurements for the marinade and breading are approximations (for someone so OC, I seem to have a thing against using measuring spoons/cups!).┬áThe … Continue reading

Mac and Cheese Soup, a follow up

Mac and Cheese Soup, a follow up

This is how my mac and cheese soup turned out after following (a combination of) the top recipes I liked. You’ll probably notice that, for a soup, it’s not as liquidy as it should be. You’re right. After cooking it had a fair amount of liquid; I let it rest to play with my daughter, … Continue reading
