Jessica Seinfeld's Recipe Book

I was recently given a copy of her book and the whole premise is to sneak veggies into kids meals - even their brownies! If anyone has tried her recipes out and wants to share - I'm curious.

I tried almost all, my kids hated them, I have to admit I didn't care for them either.

Black bean brownies

Haven't seen the book but I have a recipe for black bean brownies that I have seen lots of kids scarf down. Take a regular can of black beans, juice and all and blend the daylights out of them so they are completely smooth. Stir into commercial brownie mix (don't add anything else). I really like Ghiardelli Brownie mix. Bake as usual. I tend to bake a little longer. Cool and cut. Kids and adults will eat them. I have not had a SINGLE person identify what is different (I ask and people are surprised). They disappear at parties.

And so do the people after the fiber kicks in.

Just kidding, it sounds like a great idea ;)

Applesauce muffins

I have tried many of the recipes and the Applesauce muffins are wonderful - I get requests from adults for them!

Made Some from Deceptively Delicious

I've tried a few recipies. Pg 50 Applesauce Muffins - using 1/2 of the flour called for as whole wheat flour. Turned out well but very sweet for our tastes. the topping didn't stick to the top. Pg 65 Peanut Butter an Jelly Muffins with Carrots - turned out good -but got dry very quick. seems like you have to eat them that day -then again, I didn't try freezing them.Pg 80-I haven't made this exact recipe but one like it and turned out ok. Pg 156 Brownies didn't turn out great but worth trying again - not sure if I did something wrong. Pg 151 husband liked this chili. Froze well too. Pg 177 chocolate chip cookies turned out good. She has 2 books out - hopefully this is the book you have and asked for people to share about. I also use the Sneaky CHef by Missy Lapine. She also has great recipes online. Sometimes I used babyfood instead of pureed.
