Whole Wheat Double Chocolate Zucchini Chai Muffins

Whole Wheat Double Chocolate Zucchini Chai Muffins

A couple of weeks ago, I read the about the difficulties a mother was going through when it came to feeding her picky seven year old son. She wrote about how hard it was on her and how frustrating it was to have him reject the meals she worked hard to prepare.  But then one day, her son wrote her a letter. In it, he wrote which foods he did like and that he didn’t like the foods that his mother was making for him. The mother was heartbroken but then spoke to her son who explained that he didn’t like being picky and didn’t like that he couldn’t eat all the things that his siblings enjoyed. She came to the realization that as hard as it was on her, it was even more difficult for her son (you can read the article here). That article really resonated with me. My eldest is also a picky eater, she barely eats any veggies unless it’s cucumbers or they are puréed and unrecognizable to her.  But she does like many fruits, meats, pasta, rice, cheese, and some grains. So after reading this article, I too decided that I wouldn’t stress myself out about it anymore.  I’ll keep cooking the meals that she enjoys and will continue to invite her to try new things. But if she doesn’t want to or does try it and doesn’t like it, then that’s fine. Continue reading

Roasted Beet and Orange Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

Roasted Beet and Orange Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette I hope everyone has had a good week. I’m afraid mine was challenging and frustrating blog wise, first I spent last weekend making two recipes that didn’t turn out well, one was a real disappointment, the other after having spent considerable time making it was just so-so. Then after having successfully made something delicious and when I was just about finished with writing this post, I somehow managed to erase everything but the pictures and had to start the writing all over again. I’m thinking I may need a real nice holiday in a warm place (enough of the -30C already, yesterday it was -40C with the windchill!). I need some sunshine and warmth! Anyways, enough with my cold weather rant, let’s talk about this amazing salad.  Continue reading
