In my very first cooking class, we made one of my favorite recipes: Autumn Spice Muffins. This is a recipe that I created awhile back as I've been struggling to get Miles to eat more vegetables. The recipe actually happened by accident--I wanted to make pumpkin bread, but we didn't have pumpkin. What we did have was one, lone sweet potato...and sweet potatoes being orange and nutritious, I substituted. Neither Miles nor my (equally picky) husband noticed. In fact, both of them devoured the batch of muffins.

Thus began my quest to create healthy recipes that kids (and my picky husband) will actually eat. I enjoy sneaking things like vegetables, whole wheat, and even tofu into foods that are typically considered treats.





When I began cooking with Miles, I quickly learned that his favorite recipes were those that activated his tactile senses. Anything involving dumping, squishing, pouring, rolling would captivate him completely for long periods of time (and yes, he is as wiggly as they come).

Since my son is my very best critic and teacher as I develop my classes, all of the recipes I have chosen are not only delicious, but also fun to make!



Enjoying their muffins!
