Sometimes my husband is as creative in the kitchen as my son is. The two of them have a knack for coming up with inventive recipes that I probably never would have thought of. Take for instance this protein-rich, creamy and naturally sweet treat that's loaded with cinnamon, honey and walnuts. The first time hubby prepared it was one recent Sunday night after dinner. I had just offered the kids ice cream for dessert but my husband jumped in and said, “I’ve got something for you guys that's much better than ice cream."
Better than ice cream? Somehow Kenya and Chloe went for it, though I have to believe that if these words had come out of my mouth instead of Daddy's it wouldn't have had the same powerful effect on them. Minutes later my mad scientist husband was spooning his mouthwatering creation into colorful bowls and my kids were devouring it. By the time they asked for thirds, I knew this dish was a hit. It's versatile too and can be served just as easily for breakfast or in a lunch box as it can for dessert. Try doing that with ice cream.
