Though I know that horchata is typically served in the heat of summer as a cool, refreshing beverage, I also think of this cinnamon-spiced rice drink in autumn. When you make it at home you can use less sugar, sweetening it to taste.
I had some leftover turkey meat to use up so I decided to make a soup. Corn and cilantro were welcome additions. Also, by using brown rice, I incorporated whole grains into the soup so that you have lean protein, whole grains and vegetables with each bite.
After discovering how simple it is to make sushi at home and inspired by the colorful rainbow roll, I decided to make a more kid-friendly version of this popular sushi roll. Your kids can help roll the sushi and brainstorm different toppings to give the roll the rainbow colors.
Once I realized how easy it is to make sushi at home, I wanted to try making one of my favorite sushi rolls: Spicy Scallops. To make it appropriate for my toddler I decided to cook the scallops. If you or your kids don't like spicy foods, you can omit the sriracha sauce.
Making sushi at home is easier than you think and you can use your imagination, disguising many healthy foods within each roll. Sushi is also very kid-friendly because your kids can help make different rolls, with or without seafood, according to each person's tastes.
