In a nutshell I have created a fun spin on recipes for the everyday young mom. My goal is not to over-complicate the food, but to simplify it in a homemade, yet youthful fashion using seasonal tasty ingredients. Most importantly, my mantra is to...

What's the one food you could never live without?

What's a treat your kids love that's actually healthy?

What's your best tip for feeding a picky eater?

What's a great, freezable dish to bring to a new mom? Please share a link to your recipe.

This is a seriously amazing freezable dish that also is light on the noodles to help with unwanted pounds. A must try! Warmest, Nic

What are your favorite kid-friendly picnic eats? Please share a link to your recipe and picture if you have one.

We all eat with our eyes first, right? Well, I tend to think that this saying holds even more truth with the little ones. My "Kii's Grilled Cheese Apple Skewers" are sassy, fun & portable...but the best part? We've got whole grains, calcium & fruit all tied up into one neat little "picnic" to go package :-)

What's your kids' favorite recipe or meal to make themselves? Please include a link to a recipe with a picture.

Grilled Cheese is a definite "go to" in my house!! However, fruit, well that takes a bit more creativity! I had an idea! How about combining crisp apple chunks with the Grilled Cheese? Pop them on a stick and there you have it. "Kid's Grilled Cheese Apple Skewers!" Kids have a blast making them and I love the calcium, fiber and nutrients they are getting :-)

What's a great kid snack that would travel well on a car or plane trip? Please include a link to a picture if you have one.

Homemade Granola Bars! They are portable, filling & super duper nutritious snacks to cut through the “hankiness” (hungry = crankiness) until dinner...especially on the road. Unfortunately, sometimes there is a list of ingredients on the labels that are longer than my favorite novel. It includes everything from tons of butter and oils to preservatives with boat loads of sugar. My “Apricot-Granola Bar Nibbles with Dark Chocolate Topping” are little cuties that are simply made with natural ingredients, yet showcase wholesome dried fruit, honey, sun butter; finished off with some antioxidant-rich dark chocolate. Kids love them and the mommies and daddies will definitely be sneaking in a few bites.
