Kansas City Star Article

Check out junkfoodkids in the kansas city star.  It was a very fun afternoon.  We really enjoyed being interviewed by the Newspaper.  It was so nice of them to think of us and they featured one of my recipes.

Cuban Steaks


1 lb. Hormone and antibiotic free thin cut steaks 
1/4 organic sweet onion
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp organic lemon juice
Salt grinder 
pepper grinder

Directions: Your steaks should be cut breakfast steak thickness. I like to have them cut a rump roast for my steaks. I have the butcher cut my steaks so they come out even and saves me time. Take each steak and sprinkle with salt and pepper then pound with a meat tenderizer. Turn steak over and repeat.  Complete this process with each steak. 
Heat olive oil in a skillet until hot,  place steaks one at a time in the skillet and brown both sides.  When this is complete remove steaks and place on a plate together.  Add thin sliced onions to skillet and sauté when they are almost cooked through add lemon juice sauté one more minute and pour liquid and onions over steaks and serve.  This dish goes great with Aunt Gladys' Black Beans.

Buffalo Cauliflower Salad

In this salad I tried to pack in some super veggies to make this salad satisfying. 
1/4 cup buffalo sauce (preservative free)
1 head of cauliflower 
1tbsp  blue cheese 
2 tbsp edamame  
1/2 cup chopped iceberg lettuce 
1/4 cup red leaf kale 
Ranch or blue cheese dressing 


Start by cleaning and chopping your cauliflower. Spread out on a baking sheet.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees. I like mine still a bit more firm. Cook longer if you wish. 
Toss with buffalo sauce set to side. Assemble other ingredients for salad in a bowl. Put one fourth of buffaloed cauliflower on salad and top with your choice of dressing. Make additional salads or save remaining cauliflower for later.

Gluten-Free Bakeries

The new trends in food are spreading across the country.  So many people are finding they have food allergies or that their children are suffering. Studies are showing how some people have gluten sensitivities that can effect the way they feel.

With all of the new Gluten -Free trends bakeries and starting to cater to the food allergy community.    Many offer gluten free, egg free, and nut free items.    
For a child with allergies it effects every part of their life.  Planning on food before they go to a friends house.  How to deal with not being able to eat at a party.  When they find places that cater to their needs it is so exciting for them.  I know the first time my daughter was able to buy food from the freezer section (aka pre made meals)  she was over the moon excited.  I know a bakery that caters to your child's needs can make a birthday spectacular.
