One day I will find the magic meal that I can cook and my whole family will eat. Until then, I will continue to pin & comment on my successes and failures.

Green Bean and Tomato Salad

green bean and cherry tomato salad | smitten kitchen

    I added diced cucumbers and avocado to this. Delicious! The red wine vinegar was a nice change from the rice vinegar or white vinegar we usually use in this sort of chopped salad.

Peanut-Sesame Slaw with Soba Noodles - Cookie and Kate
  • Jennifer Divina

    I loved this! The kids ate it as well. It is easy to modify by throwing in other veggies. A win!

    This is fast becoming one of my staple dishes. If you buy the pre-shredded cabbage and carrots from Trader Joe's, this dish can be made in about 15 minutes! Perfect for a quick meal after a busy summer day at play.

Japanese Vegetable Pancakes

  • Jennifer Divina

    Another Smitten Kitchen success! The great thing about this dish is that you can just throw in whatever veggies you have in the fridge and want to use up. Loved it!

    Also, a contender for the NOT-a-peanut-butter-sandwich lunchbox challenge. I am going to try to send it to school in Sept. with some rice and soy sauce.

Spinach and Chickpeas, espinacas con garbanzos

  • Jennifer Divina

    This was delicious! One child rejected it, but what else is new. The child who enjoyed it said she would take it for lunch, so that spells success in my book! I made a few changes: diced tomatoes and tomato paste instead of tomato sauce (I was out) and no red pepper flakes.

Asian Quinoa Salad Recipe

  • Jennifer Divina

    Children tried to pick out the quinoa. I appear to be the only person in this family to like quinoa. Sniff.

Hearty Vegetarian Lentil Stew

  • Jennifer Divina

    This worked out really well. I enjoyed it. The rest of my family ate or did not eat this with no comment, so I have no idea what they thought. It would be nice to hear some positive feedback, but I suppose I should be grateful for the lack of whining.
