Deceptively Delicious!

Wow, deceptively delicious is right! This new cook book by Jessica Seinfeld is right up my alley. Easy recipes that I already feed my kids, but with a mother's secret ingredient added Vegetables!!! I thought my baby food pureeing days were over with. Well I thought wrong!!! I couldn't wait to dust off the food processor. I secretly add puree carrots to my monkeys french toast, and scrambled eggs. I waited for them to react, and guess what? No reaction! They didn't even know I tricked them. It made me feel so good, and so bad at the same time. What's up with that? I wonder. Well since I've purchased this book I started making some of the recipes. I really think it's a great way to add veggies, and fruits into your monkey's diet. Nothing beats the really thing, but the recipes in this book certainly help. Check it out!!!

Pureed carrots inside french toast. Shhh... it's a secret.
Coffee cake with butternut squash puree
Blueberry Lemon Muffins with Yellow Squash
Cigar Tortillas filled with chicken, pureed carrots, pureed yellow squash, and melted cheeses. My kids loved these, and I think this one would be perfect for their school lunch.
