Breakfast: blueberry pancakes


We know having your children eat fruits can be a hard habit to build, so a good idea is that you mix the fruits and vegetables in a bigger presentation. In this case: pancakes. This recipe will only take thirty minutes to make and it will please everyone in your family.

  1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Combine all the ingredients and set them aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter together with the egg, the milk, some heavy cream and vanilla. Whisk and integrate everything.
  3. Now, slowly you are going to add the mix in the first bowl to the second bowl. Do it slowly so you don’t get any lumps.
  4. Now, the best part, add the blueberries and mix.
  5. Cook them over a skillet with some non-stick spray. Cook them on both sides until golden and enjoy!

You can present them piled up and with some maple syrup all over. Your kids will love it!

Lunch: salmon with pasta and peas


This dish is very easy to make, the pasta is what takes the longest.

  1. To make it start by cooking your favorite pasta in some boiling water, following the package instructions.
  2. In the meantime, over a buttered skillet cook, sauté the shallots and cook until they are softened.
  3. Then, add the peas and the salmon and pour some water. Throw the stock-flavored cube and mix.
  4. Cook the salmon through and season everything with salt and black pepper. When the pasta is ready, stir it in and mix.
  5. If your family is not used to having peas, you can skip that step and not include them.

Now, if your family is a fan of salmon and want to try a new and different salmon-based dish, here is an extra recipe you can follow:

Dessert: Arroz con leche


This is a classic dessert. It only takes rice, coconut milk, sugar and cinnamon sticks to make.

Instead of boiling the rice in water, you are going to cook it in some coconut milk and with one or two cinnamon sticks in the boiling pot.

The idea is to bring the mix to a boil and then take the heat to simmer and let the rice cook through as the liquid evaporates and it is absorbed by the rice. You will see the rice become a creamy and delicious dessert.
