If it’s cheesy and we can pretend it looks like some sort of animal or creature, and they get to eat it with their fingers, the chances my kids will actually EAT their dinner drastically increases!!
So telling them these were spooky bats got them really excited to eat the other day. They proceeded to fly bats around my kitchen table for the next hour but hey, they had fun!
I found this Torino Farfalla Primavera at Target. The noodles are enormous, which make them perfect to turn into little dippers, plus they’re all natrual and made with a variety of vegetable flavors (counting their veggies in every way, shape, or form I can, lol!) You can use any kind of bow tie pasta noodles you want though.
Serve them with marinara sauce for dipping and let the kids enjoy! Miles ↓ wasn’t really into dipping his….because he firmly believes any kind of dip or sauce is spicy. There was no convincing him otherwise but he sure loved the plain cheesy noodles.
These are fun for a Halloween-themed snack or dinner, but I think we’ll be making these often. Cheesy bat noodles for the win!
We make crepes at least once a week at our house. My kids love them. They’ve kind of become our go-to Sunday morning breakfast. We save these Chocolate Crepes though for special occasions. Like Mother’s Day I think any momma would love a plate of warm chocolate crepes filled with fruit and whipped cream.
I’ve been working with The Hershey Company over the last year, learning about and using different products in my kitchen. So of course I used HERSHEY’S Cocoa in these Chocolate Crepes. HERSHEY’S Cocoa powder is one of my pantry staples!
I love this video that tells the story of HERSHEY’S Cocoa and learning about where and how the cocoa beans are sourced. There is just something really cool about knowing where our food comes from. One woman from the video says “everyone who consumes chocolate should be happy and proud to know that cocoa is produced in a sustainable manner.” I’m a consumer of chocolate and I completely agree
The Hershey Company sources the best cocoa beans from small farms in West Africa, where they also implement programs to teach farmers how to grow better quality products. I love their dedication to their farmers and their consumers! And I really do love their chocolate. Like, a lot.
Now go make some chocolate crepes!

These Carrot Cake Pancakes are perfect for Easter breakfast or brunch! Since my kids wake up at the crack of dawn every.single.day. it’ll be Easter breakfast for us. Love my early risers 😉
My boys are back on a pancake kick so I whipped these up last week and we all devoured them. The boys didn’t even know they were eating carrots! I love it when that happens. Because lately, getting them to eat ANY vegetables has been a struggle. Even though they’re hiding in sweet, sugary pancakes I consider it a win.
My mom always melted a little bit of butter in our maple syrup, it just made the pancakes taste so much better. I still usually do the same thing, but for these made a simple Brown Butter Maple Syrup for these pancakes. It was divine. And all you have to do is just brown a little butter over the stovetop, then whisk in some maple syrup. You can thank me later;)
