I found this recipe the other day and gave it a try. Everyone liked it except my really picky eater (I even let him help make them, which usually gets him to try the food a little easier -- he tried it, but there was lots of drama).


1/2 c. flour

1/2 t. baking powder

1/2 t. salt

1/4 t. pepper

1 egg

1/4 c. milk

1 c. grated carrots

1 c. grated zucchini

2 small scallions, diced

vegetable oil

sour cream and salsa (optional)

In a large mixing bowl stir flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and milk, then stir in the carrots, zucchini, and scallions. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and combine thoroughly.

Place a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 T. of oil. When the oil is hot, spoon the batter into the pan, about 1/3 c. per pancake, and cook the pancakes for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Add more oil to the pan as needed.

Remove the pancakes from the pan. Once they're cool enough to touch, roll them up and use a toothpick to secure each one if needed.

Serve the pancakes warm with a side of sour cream an salsa. Makes 5 rolls.

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, once around the pan in a slow stream

1 tablespoon butter

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 shallots, minced

1 cup vodka

1 cup chicken stock

1 can crushed tomatoes (32 ounces)

Coarse salt and pepper

16 ounces pasta, such as penne rigate

1/2 cup heavy cream

20 leaves fresh basil, shredded or torn


Heat a large skillet over moderate heat. Add oil, butter, garlic and shallots. Gently sauté shallots for 3 to 5 minutes to develop their sweetness. Add vodka to the pan (3 turns around the pan in a steady stream will equal about 1 cup). Reduce vodka by half, this will take 2 or 3 minutes. Add chicken stock, tomatoes. Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer. Season with salt and pepper.

While sauce simmers, cook pasta in salted boiling water until cooked to al dente (with a bite to it). While pasta cooks, prepare your salad or other side dishes.

Stir cream into sauce. When sauce returns to a bubble, remove it from heat. Drain pasta. Toss hot pasta with sauce and basil leaves. Pass pasta with crusty bread.

MIne 2 girl ages 8 and 3 love tater tot casserole.

*1lb hamburger, *1-meduim onion, *1 can of cream of mushroom, *1/4 cup milk,*1 cup mixed vegitables, *1 cup shredded cheddar,* seasoned tater tots. *seasoning salt, *pepper, *garlic powder.

**First brown hamburger and onion together, i would season the hamburger with approx 1 tsp each of seasoning salt and pepper, a sprinkle of garlic powder if you'd like. Drain meat once onions are cooked through. Place meat in casserole, pour on and mix in 1 can cream of mushroom and 1/4 cup milk. take the mixed vegitables and layer them on top of meat mixture (like a lasagna). Then put a layer of the shredded cheese on next. Take your tater tots and add an even layer of them on top of cheese (tater tots laying down, enough to cover entire casserole in 1 single layer) Then bake in 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until tater tots are browned and crispy.

homemade pizza is a favorite in our house. I use the Jiffy pizza dough mix, alfredo sauce, spinach, grilled chicken strips, mushrooms, olives, oregano, thyme and a little bit of italian blend shredded cheese. The chicken and spinach I buy frozen and only take out what I need for the meal; they're usually good for 3-4 meals. It's really quite fun to make cause there's a lot of ways to switch this up to keep it from getting boring.
