When the weather is constantly miserable during the winters in New York, I am all about being cozy and versatile in my cooking and eating. Over the weekend, I made a delicious and uber-easy tomato sauce that is the perfect dish for keeping all my kitchen constituents happy: the kids always want a yummy pasta, check; my husband wants something healthy and different, check; and, I usually want to watch my waistline, but don’t always want not make two (or even three!) completely different meals, check and check!
I made this sauce in less than 30 minutes, the kids loved it on top of pasta, and I quickly broiled some filet of sole and topped it with the sauce for the adults. Easy as pie for me and delicious for all! Love that!
Note: This ages very well, so make in advance or get two meals out of it! It’s delish on chicken cutlets as well!
While your little ones cannot enjoy a tequila-infused margarita, they can feel included with their own kid-friendly version. Have them hold the blender lid down and watch their faces light up as the blender whirs fresh lime juice, tart raspberries and ice together for a tasty drink of their own!
This purée resembles puréed baby food a little bit, but is still delicious and easy to slip into any meal you're making for your kids. They'll never know that they're eating two — not one — vegetables.
Any or all of the ingredients listed below hide beautifully in a 6-ounce can of chunk light* or chunk white tuna, packed in water and drained. As with all Sneaky Chef recipes, you can gradually increase the amount of the nutritious sneaky ingredient over time. You can also combine any or all of the following Quick Fixes.
These are known as a snacks-on-the-go in my house, especially for my kids during those busy summer months — they love them, and I love that I know what is in them! I’ve found it helps to freeze these before heading out so they are perfect by the time you are ready to eat them.

Homemade Birthday Gift for Kids
Birthday are always happening year round.There are many items that you can give as gifts.But homemade gift is very special.It is tasty and nutritious gift for a kids party.
* FOR THE DOUGH:
* 100 grams Flour, All Purpose
* ¼ teaspoons Salt To Taste
* 50 grams Butter, Chilled
* ½ whole Egg Yolk, Beaten
* 50 milliliters Water Cooled
* FOR THE FILLING:
* ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil -Filling
* ½ teaspoons Garlic Chopped
* 1 Tablespoon Red Onion, Chopped
* 50 grams Smoked Salmon, Crumbled
* 25 grams Mashed Potatoes
* ¼ teaspoons Black Pepper
* ½ teaspoons Salt To Taste
* ½ whole Whole Egg, Beaten
Sift the flour. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Next add approximately 1/2 of the egg yolk and the water. Mix well your hands. Try to work quickly.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes.
Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a 12 inch square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin.
Put the greased mold onto a 12inch square pastry sheet. (I made the boat mold out of thick paper. I covered the paper with aluminum foil. Before using a boat mold brush it with butter or coking spray.) Break off pieces of dough and press them into the mold – make sure the dough goes up the sides as well.Then trim off the excess pastry. Prick the base with a fork to prevent air bubbles.
In a pan heat 1/2 table spoon olive oil over medium high heat, add garlic and mix until slightly softened. Next add onion, salmon, and prepared (or leftover) mashed potatoes. Mix until onion is softened and everything is heated through. Add pepper and salt. Mix well.
Place your prepared filling in the pastry ‘boat’. Brush the edges of the pastry with some egg wash then place additional pastry over the top and press down to seal. Now make two holes on the top. Brush the egg on top of the pastry.
Bake about 20 minutes at 200 c degrees or until the crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool.
After that decorate with flags and masts. I’ve done in the photo above.
The flags and masts were made out of pastry dough. You can do this with the extra scraps of dough if you want.
Serve and enjoy.
