When I first started this blog, parsnips were in season, so I thought, I should make parsnip chips as one of my first blog posts. I went and bought the parsnips, sliced them, oiled them and baked them in the oven. And they came out […]

Crackers will always be on my top 10 favorite foods list. I like eating crackers with cheese, crackers with jam, crackers plain, nothing on it – you get the picture. So when I first made cheddar crackers a couple weeks ago, I thought why stop there? I found this amazing seed cracker recipe and needed to share it with you guys. It is so so good. And super easy to make. It literally only has 6 ingredients.
Here are the ingredients:
Sunflower seeds. Sesame seeds. Chia seeds. Pepitas. Garlic. And salt. Also you will need water. That’s it!
I decided last minute to add some cut up dried cranberries to try and entice my little one. But it really doesn’t need it. They taste good both ways. I also next time will probably add some flax and different seasonings.
The consistency is like a crispy seedy cracker. It’s definitely got that savory factor with the added garlic. The trick is to spread it out thin, not too thin, but I made these ones a little too thick for my liking. But they still tasted amazing! Instead of grabbing a handful of crackers when I’m hungry, I can grab one of these and know I’m getting some good nutrients. They’re also great for kids for an after school snack!

Lemon kale pasta has been a staple in this house for a while. Actually, since we first discovered it a few years back, from a friend. I personally am a big fan of olive oil pasta.(Aglio et olio). I prefer it even over red. Just give me lots of garlic and olive oil with parmesan cheese and chili flakes, and I’m happy. Similarly, this pasta uses the same ingredients, but with added kale and lemon. The flavors combined, become this magical tangy, zesty, garlicky, tasty dish of pasta. And since there’s no such thing as making a separate meal just for your kid in this house, my daughter eats this too. Luckily, she loves it. If you haven’t introduced kale to your kids yet, this is it. Lemon Kale pasta, everybody.
We usually use whole wheat spaghetti for this dish. But I’ve tried linguini and rigatoni with it too and even added some shrimp. It was superb. However, spaghetti is still our favorite.

Did you know that making sushi rolls is super easy? It looks daunting I know, but if you deconstruct it, like most things, it’s not as daunting as you think. You can use any filling you like, and just put it all together like so. Here, I used avocado and cucumber to make a super easy sushi roll for my daughter. It’s also Friday, so it was the only thing I had left in my fridge. Time to grocery shop, I know. In any case, just take a look at how simple this is below.
If you have a rice cooker at home, then it’s even easier. All you need to do is make some white/brown or mixed rice and you’re halfway there. Make sure to always use sushi rice which is stickier and in my opinion tastier, too.

Here are the 2 items you will need:
If you don’t have a rice cooker, you can also cook rice in a pot on the stove.
I tend to mix up what I put in my rolls. Usually, I make all vegetarian, like avocados, cucumber, carrots and spinach. But I also like to put in baked salmon or any kind of fish, crab meat, and tuna too. The options are pretty endless. Here’s a link to another easy sushi roll I made with detailed instructions on it also.
In short, all I’m saying, is give it a try! I’m telling you, it’s not as hard as you think. And it’s a fun way to get your kids in the kitchen too! For the heart shaped avocados, I used these vegetable cutters and I love them. I especially like making these for my little one’s lunch.
