i finally got a copy of Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook Deceptively Delicious. for those of you who are not familiar it is a cookbook full of recipes for kid's favorite foods~ mac 'n cheese, chicken nuggets, spaghetti~ you get the idea. but here is where the deception comes into play... she hides vegatable and fruit purees into each recipe! a little spinich puree in the spaghetti sauce! butternut squash puree in the mac 'n cheese! this is so sneaky i can hardly stand it!!
i actually tried to buy a copy a couple days after it was released but it was sold out and back ordered at my favorite bookstore. apparently i was not the only mom anxious to give my children's next meal a nutrition boost on the sly.
here are the recipes we are going to try first:
tacos, with vegetable puree in the meat! genius!!
and chocolate cake with, are you ready for this, pureed beets!
yay for puree!!
