Halloween's coming up and there's always discussion about healthy alternatives to all that candy given out during Trick or Treating.
When I was a kid there was a family down the street that always gave apples. It was a popular stop, as the mother had a terrific act. She would dress up in a dramatic witch costume and hand out "magical" apples. Sometimes getting us to eat better is just in how the message is delivered!
About 10 years ago I lived next door to a woman who gave money to the Trick or Treaters. She would save up her spare change through the year and doled out about 30 - 35 cents for each kid (about the cost of a candy bar). The kids were always delighted at this, even more so than getting actual candy. I do this now and love the squeals of "Mooomm, I got money!" almost every time. Healthier Choices for Halloween Candy
I love these little pancakes and you can use the basic recipe with almost any flavor you want. The dill is great but herbed with oregano, thyme or basil really brings out the flavor. You could, however, turn them Southwestern with about 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and a bit of chili powder.
