      i have learnedsome great ideas from the “Sneaky Chef” book that include fresh vegetables pureed ahead and frozen into ice cube trays for future meals. i save money on vegetables this way when purchasing sale items and those in season andthere isneverany waste. it even doubles as homemade baby food.

      the website has some recipes for free http://www.thesneakychef.combut lots are left out so we borrowed the book from the library.

      our familyfavorites include the twice baked potatoes w/cauliflower and the chocolate chip pancakes.

      I add cauliflower to mac and cheese too. It doesn’t even have to be
      pureed just chopped small, it blends right it with the pasta.
