ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

I need your help! SOS! WOK! PAN!

Did you know that I am single-handedly keeping Morningstar Farms in business? Me and the company are such good pals I'm a Facebook fan. I'm a member of their prestigious Insider's Club. Junior's on their Chik Patties like a...oh crap, it's early, insert witty simile. Or is it metaphor? Did I mention it's early?

I'm begging you, if you know of any good toddler cookbooks, tell me what they are. Junior wants to dress up as a Morningstar Farms Veggie Riblet for Halloween and cute as he'd be, it'd be so nice if we could wean him off the pre-made stuff and onto something Mama Mullet made.

P.S. Please, please, puhleeeze don't suggest Jessica Seinfeld's kiddie cookbook. I think the family has enough money and the cover design is so hokey!

P.P.S. I was not paid to write this post. Not even in black bean burgers.

My kids eat Tyson chicken nuggets probably 5 days a week. :S The Pioneer Woman www.thepioneerwoman.com Ree Drummond has an amazing cookbook out (just released Oct 27). Down home cooking. She has four kids. It's on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.

I really like "The Big Book of Recipes for Babies, Toddlers & Children: 365 Quick, Easy, and Healthy Dishes" - you can 'look inside' it on Amazon...here's the link:

The Big Book of Recipes


There are others linked in there as well (you might also like). :)

Good luck! :)

It's called the menu board at the drive-thru.

I don't know if it's out for purchase but you could probably call ahead and find out.

I am afraid I can't help you. I usually make up my own recipes (although I do like the Gourmet cookbook). Sorry I couldn't be more help :(.

Pricilla said...

I have no children so I can't help you although I have been married for 28 years. To a man....does that count as a toddler?

Grand Pooba said...

Haha! Um, I've got a few dog biscuit recipes.

The Mother said...

Can't help. Never did find anything the kids would eat.

My husband eats like he's still a toddler. I've finally started sneaking some healthy things in on him - but the freak still won't eat fruit unless it's in a pie!

Vodka Mom said...

sorry- no help here. The only one I use is the Cheerios cookbook from our school library.

Uh... No cookbooks but we seem to get into a mac and cheese rut occasionally. I make a mean turkey meat ball that the kids gobble. I can send you the recipe if you want. They also make good patties.

I LOVE the Morning Star Sausage patties. Costco used to carry a giant box but then has them NO longer. Sad me.

I bought this:

I wish I could say I've tried every recipe. That would be a lie. I'm with Sara...mine eats the Tyson nuggets freakishly often.

SLColman said...

At least he is eating!! I agree that the Pioneer Woman has some great recipes!

Mad Woman said...

Discovery Toys has a cookbook called Kids Krunchies Too.....it's pretty good!
