- 28 oz. skinned and crushed tomatoes (We usually puree in blender.) (Skin tomatoes easily by first plunging in boiling water until skins just begin to crack and peel. Then plunge into a clean sink full of ice water. Skins will slide off easily with a knife.)
- 2 cans (6 oz. each) tomato paste
- 1/2 c. water
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. dried basil
- 1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp. parsley
Here is a great and tasty object lesson you can do with your children. It is one of the projects found in our Character Concepts for Preschoolers Mom’s Guide. I found this recipe/idea years ago from an old Bible cookbook for kids that had different Bible lessons with recipes to go along with them.
This one become a favorite. In fact, when our youngest child, Kasey, was a little girl, she began calling sweets ‘sin’ and asking for some ‘sin’ for dessert! That always brought some laughter!
Just last week when I had 4 of the grand kids over for a couple of days, I brought out this recipe to make with them. They wondered what in the world we were doing when Kasey and I suggested making “hidden sins” for dessert! 🙂
These simple treats have been a favorite in our home through the years. All my kids have loved them. They’re easy to make, too!
- 3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup M & M’s
- 1 (12 oz) pkg. mini marshmallows
- 5 cups Cheerios
We were introduced to this recipe at our son, Tim’s, wedding. Kari and her mom had made these, and frozen them ahead to serve the guests. These are fruity and slushy, sweet, and very refreshing!
Serve them with breakfast, parties, or just keep some in the freezer as a handy snack.
We love them!
