Tasty Attempts: Abby Cadabby's Enchanting Butterflies and Flowers

Last year I had started posting What's For Dinner. While I really enjoyed those posts, it was hard to keep up with a weekly post, especially since Munchkin is getting a little more picky about his diet and we are having a lot of repeat meals (sometimes the same thing several times a week). I still wanted to keep posting tasty recipes but include a little more variety (like the appetizers and desserts that I make for various parties). So I am now posting Tasty Attempts every other Tuesday. The posts will include a variety of recipes, maybe some of them turn out tasty, maybe others are failed attempts.
Since Munchkin has been so into cooking, I picked up a bunch of his own cookbooks.  One was the Sesame Street cookbook C is for Cooking
We have used this cookbook a few times and it is fun for Munchkin to pick out food and help prepare it too.  This time we chose to make Abby Cadabby's Enchanting Butterflies and Flowers
Let me tell you it was crazy hard to cut the carrots like flowers, if you cut too far into the sides the 'flower petals' fell off. Either way though it was still a tasty dish that Munchkin would eat!
We did leave out the fresh parsley this time but normally he wouldn't mind it.


  1. Very fun! I wish I'd pull out my cook books more. I so rarely feel like cooking.

    1. I have so many cookbooks its insane but I always end up finding recipes online because I have the time at work. I am learning to enjoy cooking more but only when I actually have time to prepare a meal instead of trying to quickly get something on for Munchkin to eat.
