I made this Yogurt Parfait Pie from Cooking with my Kid (as well as a bunch of other stuff, all of it edible thank-you-very-much) for the 4th of July Party at my house, and it was deeeeelicious. Generally the recipes on that blog are a little bland for my tastes, and I think next time I make this (there will definitely be a next time) I’ll add some vanilla or … I don’t know. Just a little something extra.
Also: Apparently cornstarch is something that exists? I didn’t know that until shopping to make this.
I made these corn muffins (they not only have cornstarch, but actual kernels of corn in them) one night with Cade, and they were exceedingly edible. Just needed a little extra honey.
Something about m&m’s in cookies just makes my knees melt. This (gluten-free!) recipe is from Cooking With My Kid.
In a similar vein, these Glazed Apple Cookies are also making my knees melt. Bigtime. Glazed cookies are just the best.
Yup, these look disgusting. But I want to make them (out of fancy organic hotdogs & whole-wheat pasta, of course) for Grady! You cook the pasta & hot dogs together and it comes out looking like this disgusting alien mess that kids are certain to adore. Found at crafterhours.
Our (wonderful, constantly-sharing) neighbors made campfire dinners like this for us last night (meaning July 7, as I’m writing this on July 8), and it awakened a constant desire for tin-foil-wrapped ashy food in me. I think this is what Sunday dinner will be. (When I asked dear old dad what kind of meat he wanted in it, he replied “I don’t care, chicken?” Have I mentioned that he is so difficult to cook for?)
Almond-Apple-Cinnamon scones. WANT.
I would love to eventually make my own noodles for soups. Are they more difficult than pie crust? Because I’m still not at all able to make pie crust, and I figured noodles should wait until that wall is hurdled.
This Vegetarian Lime Orzo looks incredibly good.
As does this Black-Eyed Pea Salad. I’ve recently renewed my love for Black-Eyed Peas. I’m getting the urge to make my own black-eyed pea hummus. Not sure if it would work, but it’s worth trying!
