Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

This is a wonderful alternative to sugar-laden, artificially flavored instant oatmeals. The recipe calls for good old-fashioned rolled oats, not the quick cooking kind. They taste better, are more nutritious, and they take only a few minutes longer to fix.

1 cup apple juice
1 cup water
1 medium apple, cored and chopped ( I take the skin off) 
1 cup uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
Slivered almonds (omit for younger children)

The Process
In a medium saucepan, bring apple juice, water, and chopped apple to a boil over medium high heat. Stir in oats, raisins, cinnamon, and salt until well blended. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally. Spoon into bowls and top with slivered almonds.

We just had some of this with our waffles :) YUMO.

2 cups frozen organic blueberries (i only had fresh and it tasted just fine)
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons honey

The Process
1. Put berries, honey and water (or juice and zest) in a small pot and turn on heat.
2. Cook until berries are soft, about five minutes.
3. Remove and puree in a blender. Serve with pancakes or waffles and store extra in refrigerator for up to a week.

Classic Creme Cookies

This isn't a recipe, obviously, but I wanted to share this product. Let's face it, kids love junk food. (And who am I kidding? I love it, too!)

I'm transitioning my child to more healthier food choices, and I'm having a hard time. Back to Nature products are delicious, and at the same time contain natural ingredients (I don't feel bad allowing my son to eat any of their food). I recommend these cookies over Oreos any day! And they are scrumptious!

recipes for fun

I'm thinking of adding "recipes" for crafts and activities to the community. It could be any activity you've done with your child or an activity you think others might enjoy. It doesn't have to involve food. Crafts, games, experiments, cooking projects .... anything really. I found this online and tried it out a few years back and it worked wonderfully.

Creamy Cucumber Dip with Crispy Chips

I looove Mediterranean food. Especially tzatziki sauce! This recipe reminds me of it, and is the vegan version, I suppose. The real tzatziki sauce contains yogurt. I don't have a picture, but next time I make it I'll attach a photo. :)

For the dip

* 2 small cucumbers
* 1 14-ounce package of tofu
* 3 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
* 2 garlic cloves, peeled
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon coriander
* 1/4 teaspoon cumin
* pinch of cayenne
* 1/4 cup finely sliced red onion

Peel, seed, and grate the cucumbers, then let it sit for 10 minutes.

In a blender, combine the tofu, lemon juice, garlic, salt, coriander, cumin, and cayenne. Blend until completely smooth.

Squeeze the grated cucumber to remove any excess moisture and then place them in a serving bowl with the red onion. Stir in the tofu mixture. Chill 2 to 3 hours before serving.

For the chips

* 6 pieces pita bread
* 1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil
* dashes garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, and salt, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350oF.

Brush the tops of the pita breads very lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle each pita with the seasonings. Cut each piece into 6 to 8 triangular wedges and place them in a single layer on baking trays or aluminum foil.

Bake the pita chips until they're very crispy, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove them from oven and cool on a rack.
