Sweet potatoes can be a hard sell to the under-10 set. Try sweetening the superfood with orange peel and pumpkin-pie spice, then top with a crunchy layer of corn flakes, brown sugar, and pecans. You just might win a few converts.
Ice Cream Pumpkin Pie
We've heard of picky eaters not liking pie. But ice cream pie? Not possible. To make this twist on classic pumpkin pie, scoop chocolate chip ice cream onto a cooled graham crackercrust. Then spread a layer of vanilla ice cream -- punched up with canned pumpkin -- over the top and garnish with chocolate curls.
Roast Turkey Breast
A Thanksgiving truth: Kids like white meat best (good luck getting them to try any other parts). Make sure there's plenty to pass with this whole turkey breast, lightly flavored with lemon pepper and Italian seasoning.
