Toddler Muffins

Rating: 5 stars 334
Mini muffins for finicky toddlers with the addition of fruit and veggies. My son is 2 and has been eating these for a year. I always keep a supply in the freezer, he loves them frozen especially when new teeth are coming in! Adults love them too. Great for play groups! Recipe makes 24 mini muffins or 12 regular-size muffins.

Spring Herb Hummus Vegetable Garden

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
Vegetable platters need not look all look the same. Here, fresh spring vegetables sit in an herb-laced hummus to resemble a spring garden in full bloom. My kids loved plucking the crisp vegetables from the garden, so much so that I think they forgot that they were filling themselves up with such a healthful snack.

Homemade Goldfish Treats

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
Spice up your day with some flavorful cheese crackers! Wonderful cheese taste with not a lot of ingredients!

Cauliflower Sheep

Rating: 5 stars 9
There's more than one way to get creative in the kitchen! Make cute little sheep from cauliflower florets. All you need are black olives, fresh cauliflower florets, raisins, dry black-eyed peas, and toothpicks. Olives and black-eyed peas become the heads and eyes. The legs are raisins. Don't play with your food? Well, not this time. So much fun.
