Mmm, mmm good for you

So I picked up a new book today when we went for storytime and the local Barnes and Noble. Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld, wife of Jerry Seinfeld.

Some of you may have seen her on tv - my friend told me about the book after seeing her on Oprah the other day, and and I know she was also on the Today Show this week. I guess her kids are picky eaters, and won't eat their vegetables. So Jessica started coming up with recipes that use pureed vegetables in regular foods - basically sneaking in their vegetables - and her kids never seemed to notice. So she's got recipes for stuff that kids love, like quesadillas (butternut squash puree mixed in with the cheese), chicken nuggets, pizza, mac and cheese and even her own ketchup recipe. I'm especially curious to try her desserts - brownies that even have carrot and spinach puree in them!? Cupcakes and stuff with beet puree, etc. I'll have to let you know how they turn out! I don't really think I have to hide vegetables from Cash, sometimes he just won't eat much period - vegetables or other. But I do like the idea of adding more nutrients to stuff I'm going to make anyway. We'll see how it goes! If anyone's interested, I have a really good coupon to get 37% off that's good until October 15th. I can email it to you if you want (maybe you can find it online too).

I saw her on Oprah too. I'm kind of skeptical....this seems like a lot of work. But, then my kids will at least eat some (not all) I don't feel desperate yet. Let us know how it goes!
