We all love growing vegetables, but there really isn't much of a point if we don't know how to eat them. These are some of my favorite ways to eat vegetables. I have found that when I don't like a vegetable, it's probably just how I cooked it, and not that I don't like it. And the same goes for picky kids. It can take time, but finding a way to make the vegetable fun, having them help cook it, and then having it taste amazing can make a huge difference.
I am also a very busy person. With 3 children, a farm and Annie's, there's not a lot of time to spend cooking. And we eat every meal at home, breakfast, lunch and dinner. We don't eat out ever. So most of these recipes are fast to prepare, easy, and most of all delicious. Sometimes they take a long time in the oven, but the prep work is simple, and I can do other things while the veggies cook. These recipes are also made from whole ingredients.
Our family has a lot of food allergies and intolerances, and most of those are from additives. The recipes that I use are made from scratch, using herbs and spices, cheeses, olive or coconut oil, sea salt, and fresh vegetables. Pre-packaged mixes, boxes, canned soups, and the like are not a part of how we eat, so they aren't going to be in the recipes.
