Whenever a sweet craving hits I turn to something that feels guilty but truly isn't that bad; Honey Fried Bananas. They are so sweet and satisfying while feeling sinful...perfect for a late night treat! http://veggie-kids.blogspot.com/2011/08/honey-fried-bananas.html

What's your favorite muffin recipe?

Sarah Creighton

One can never have enough muffins stocked in the freezer, ready to take to a friend's house, bring along on a car trip or pack in those kids' lunch boxes. I seem to have a love of all things mini when it comes to food so these mini muffins are easy to just pop right into your mouth! Out of all the muffins we consume around here, this is definitely a family favorite! Vegan Banana Muffins http://veggie-kids.blogspot.com/2011/06/snack-time.html

Please share a link to a photo of a great birthday cake you made or bought.

Since my family is vegan, I've created two delicious chocolate and vanilla cupcake recipes that we always share with non-vegans who never seem to know the difference! I use all natural food coloring which creates the most beautiful colors and came up with a yummy creamy frosting to go with it! The cupcake recipes can also be made into regular cakes which we've done before too. http://veggie-kids.blogspot.com/2012/02/vegan-birthday-cupcakes-vanilla.html

Can you recommend a great summer snack to feed kids on break or to pack for days at camp? (Please include a link to the recipe.)

Raw veggie sticks with sunflower seed dip or kid-friendly coleslaw. Both are refreshing, healthy and do not require refrigeration so they're great for lunches!

There's nothing like these classic Banana Muffins. The best part? They're vegan, healthy and tasty! We make them in large batches and freeze the extras.

My kids and I LOVE this Cruciferous Salad because it tastes so fresh and crispy! It's a great way to get your Veggie Power too! You can get creative by adding in different "springy" veggies. Yum!
