Cornflakes and Ice Cream

Wan to make your ice cream look different? Try to put some healthy and crunchy toppings to make your dessert more enjoyable to eat. Kids love to eat something new and difficult for them to consume healthy food. By adding whole grains to their dessert, it would be a good way to meet their daily whole grain requirement. So try some cereal on top of your ice cream. My kids love it and your family might like it too. If you have tried it before, try a variety of toppings. Add some coco flakes or berries.

Instant Noodle with Chicken Meat and Veges

Here's another favorite dish of the family. When I am looking for something quick and easy for my family to eat, I just grab a pack of instant noodles and leftover chicken meat from the fridge. I just add it up some veges like carrots and spinach. The outcome is really good. I still add some eggs but I don't use all the seasoning that comes in the pack of instant noodles. I use a little bit of it only and sometimes, I don't use it at all. Just pink salt and black pepper. The eggs and the chicken meat has already added flavor into it. Instant noodles have flavors to it too so even without the seasoning, it tastes good already. My kids got used to the taste so you might want to try a bit of seasoning first and if you like it, try minimizing the next time you make this noodle dish.

I boil the carrots first until tender-crisp. Water should be 2 cups for 1 pack of instant noodle. You can add 1/2 cup since you are adding other ingredients. Then add noodles, chicken shreds and seasoning. Cook noodles for a minutes. Stir in 2-3 eggs. I like the yolk cooked as whole. Sometimes, partly beaten so I stir once. Add spinach and you're done. Turn off stove and cover. Spinach will cook easily and you can just use the heat to cook it. Serve right away while noodles are not soggy yet. You may eat it with rice. We use brown rice. Enjoy!

Honey Cornflake Cups with Coconut Flakes

My kids love this honey cornflake  cups! I made a colorful set of cups and my munchkins had fun picking and eating. Hubby and I couldn't resist too. Since I am hypoglycemic, I didn't follow the whole recipe. Again, I modified the recipe by omitting and adding a few ingredients to satisfy my taste! Hope you will like my recipe:
90g Butter
2 Tbsp Honey
4 Cups Cornflakes, crushed
1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Coconut Flakes
Candy Toppers

 Place the empty baking cups on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 325F. In a pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add honey and mix. Stir in cornflakes and chocolate chips. Coat the mixture well and spoon cornflakes mixture into the cups. Top it with a pinch of coco flakes and bake for about 12 minutes until the cornflakes are golden brown. Let the cups cool down and top with candies.

Ready Pack Salad

I found a new favorite for green salads! I tried a Ready-Pack Salad Kit at Albertson's and I liked it. Now I always buy for my family. The pack comes with its own house dressing and toppings like nuts, pumpkin seeds, salami, ham, cheese, dried noodles, dried fruits and more. The contents depend on the kind of salad you are buying. I like the Asian Salad which has a sesame ginger dressing which is really good. Also, the greens with poppy seed dressing. You should try these packs and you will love the variation. My friends liked it too when I brought it at a potluck party. Very easy and healthy!
