that these carrots are gorgeously delicious and that you might think they are candy. Ok, maybe not all day suckers but pretty close.

Serves 4 big kids and 6 little kids
Teenagers, Hmmm....Serves 1

STEP 1: Mix all the ingredients together and poke your finger into the mix and taste...Yummy! (Set on the side and save some dressing for the carrots please)

STEP 2: Preheat the oven to 400° F. Wash and remove the carrot tops unless you have red hair...(haha)

STEP 3: Slice up the carrots the long way and then place them in a large bowl with the dressing. Toss and coat.

STEP 4: Place carrots and dressing on to a baking sheet, sprinkle with sesame seeds and place in oven.

As Cool as a Cucumber with What on it? Pea Dip!

INGREDIENT
3 cups of peas (frozen are perfect)
1 cup of water
3 tbsp of pine nuts, roughly chopped
1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
½ tsp of minced garlic
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

MADDIE SAYS:
Eat Green Stuff??? Yikes... A measly ½-cup serving provides vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese! True! Peas are a good source of iron, folate, vitamin B1, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, and copper. Peas offer up some a nice serving of protein too. So give them a try and gobble them up.

Serves 8 big kids and 12 little kids.
Forget it teens- grab the bowl

STEP 1: Wash your cucumbers and then slice thickly. Place on the side

STEP 2: Insert steamer in pot, and fill the water right up to the steamer but make sure not to cover the steamer in water. Boil your water and then add your peas. Cook until the peas are bright green and tender. You can blanche the peas (blanche is a fancy French word for plunging them into an ice bath or very cold water to halt the cooking process-this method makes the peas taste even sweeter)

STEP 3: Put your peas into a food processor or blender and add a small amount of the water from your cooking into the mix so you get a nice puree.

STEP 4: Add the pine nuts, cheese, garlic and olive oil.

STEP 5: Thin with more liquid if necessary.

Voil...there you have it. Place a spoonful of pea dip on top of your cucumber and enjoy. You can even cut up of your own favorite veggies and dip them into your newly created pea dip. A variation to this dip is to add in some fresh mint- 2-3 tablespoons minced, adds a fresh flavor.

MATT SAYS:
This is super quick and easy to make and we love eating our fruit off of skewers or sticks.
These are great to pack in your lunchbox or on a picnic and they provide you with some energy.
Ilove to eat this food because it gives me energy to keep those dragons away from my bed.
You can choose any fruits you like, but we chose our favorites.
