Deceptively Delicious?

Do any of you have this book by Jessica Seinfeld? I picked it up at Goodwill today, as we're trying to get my very picky 10 year old to eat better. I was wondering if you had it, which recipes were a success. DS has already picked out two he would like to try and fix with me and eat.

I thought the point of that book was to put icky food into food your kids eat and they wouldn't know about it?

I had one thing from that book, whatever the fake mashed potatoes were. They were odd but I could see it fooling people who didn't know what they were eating.

It is. He's currently trying one new vegetable a week, but I thought I could sneak some in this way, too.

I have the book. I don't hide from the boys I'm putting in veggies. They know, but they aren't too picky either. The #1 mac and cheese is a favorite in the house. The brownies are good, but don't let them eat too many...lots of fiber!! They also like the chocolate chip cookies with the garbanzo beans. The lasagna is good too. I've made quite a few recipes and so far they liked them all except the beet pancakes.

I did what she suggested and pureed and froze a bunch of bags of different veggies so it would be easier during the week. When my 7 year old was a baby and I ran out of the veggies I did and I was already in the middle of making dinner I'd throw in a can of baby food (spinach, carrots, etc..). They tasted fine and no one was the wiser

I liked the book. I don't do it much anymore because now that I'm working again I can't seem to get organized about dinner like I used to! But maybe I'll bring it out again, it was fun and tasty

Thank you! I'm wanting to try the rice balls and tofu nuggets. That's a great idea about the baby food!

You're very welcome! Oh and when she suggest to let it cool before eating, I agree. Nothing like a warm brownie, but in this case wait! It's amazing how you can't taste the spinach and carrots when it's cooled! Happy cooking!
