Dana Stannard:   Cocoa Kids

My kids love a simple roasted chicken. Can’t get enough of it. Also, they really like steamed edamame. The fun factor plays into the edamame though. They love to shell the peas from the pods.

I’ll answer that as the food we can’t get enough of right now, because it changes often. We call it, Apple Dessert.


  •  1 apple, chopped and cored
  •  1 tablespoon corn starch
  •  1 teaspoon cinnamon
  •  2 teaspoons brown sugar


We sprinkle the dry ingredients over the apple in a bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Take out and stir. Microwave again for 2 minutes and take out again. This is the ultimate delicious dessert. We have tons of apples right now, so we eat it almost daily.

Avery loves soup.  She loves all kinds of soup and will never pass it up!  Since it’s starting to get colder outside, I thought I’d share a recipe for Vegetable Soup that will keep you nice and toasty!  I especially like serving her vegetable soup because she will eat vegetables in the soup that she would not just eat off of her place (think lima beans)!  It’s a great, easy way to fill her full of veggies.  Plus, it’s a great low carb meal.


Vegetable Soup Ingredients:


Beef with bone – approximately 1 – 1 ½ pounds

3 Beef Bouillon Cubes

½ Onion


One can, frozen package, or fresh equivalent each of:

Mixed vegetables


Green Beans

Stewed Tomatoes



Green Lima Beans

Small can of Tomato Sauce


5 small potatoes – cut into pieces

½ cup barley

2       teaspoons garlic

1 – 1 ½  teaspoons salt




Cut onion into small pieces.


Sauté beef with bone, bouillon cubes, and onion in skillet (if using a crock pot) or in bottom of stock pot.


Drain the vegetables if using canned.


Add the rest of the ingredients (including the bone).


If using a crock pot, set on high and cook for 5-6 hours.  Then reduce to low until you are ready to serve.

Add water as needed.


If using a stock pot on the stove, cook on high until it bubbles.  Then reduce to low for a few hours until done.  Add water as needed.


Remove the bone before serving – and ENJOY!!

  1. My kids absolutely LOVE broccoli and corn. I buy the steamer bags of frozen veggies and they cook in like 4 minutes. My 10 yr old will make a bag by herself and eat it for lunch…lol

  2. Some fantastic ideas here that I would never have thought of in a million years. We also have a lot of apples at the moment, so I may try the apple desert idea which I’m sure the kids (and I) will love!

  3. Woww! very nice blog. Thank you for your share with me. It’s very useful for me for my kids.

    thank again
