    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!! :scared: 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! :banana:
