Being a very picky eater growing up and now being the parent of two young children, I completely understand the challenges of finding kid-friendly recipes that are both nutritious and great tasting. Below are a list of our favourite kid-friendly recipes that will stand the test of the children's standards. Kid-friendly recipes are also a great way to include kids in the cooking process.
|Recipe: Chocolate Crinkles|
With cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate, these chocolate crinkle cookies are rich, moist and simply irresistable.
|Recipe: Gingerbread Cookies|
I don't like my Gingerbread to be too strong or too hard, hence I reduce the molasses a bit, and use egg yolks to give them a little extra richness.
|Recipe: Blondie Train Cake|
Although these blondies can be made without the train mould, the mould adds a lot of fun and a gourmet feel to a pretty easy recipe.
|Recipe: Caramel Shortbread|
For my caramel shortbread, I changed things slightly by making a brown sugar shortbread with a homemade caramel sauce. The brown sugar added a little flavour and a bit of a crunch.
|Recipe: Chocolate Truffles|
This year we decided to get a little more creative with the truffles and make milk chocolate, white chocolate, baileys, chocolate orange, mint chocolate and some variations on each (white shell on milk centre etc...).

The key to a good meatloaf recipe is taking some time up front to cook your vegetables to bring out the flavour before you add to the rest of the meatloaf ingredients.
