Petit Appetit Got some pint sized chefs at home? Or just some pint sized diners? Lisa Barnes’ “Petit Appetit: Eat Drink & Be Merry” is just the ticket. This family cookbook features recipes for more than 150 organic, kid-friendly snacks, drinks and party fare, from cheesecake-like pumpkin tarts to sparkling limeade, confetti slaw and more. Yum. We’re giving away a copy this week and all you have to do is tell us, what did you serve at your kid(s) last birthday party? We’ll draw a winner’s name next Monday.

(Congrats, by the way, to Judy who won last week’s wonderful “Super Granny” book!)

This 1/2 birthday it was orange jello poke cake.I am presently attempting to make him his own cook book and I would love to gather ideas from this book.Thank You

    The last birthday we had for my son, we barbecued and had a variety of pasta and vegetable salads, fresh fruit and corn on the cob. Not to forget the chocolate cake to top off the meal.


  5. Celia Says:

    At the last birthday party we had mini-chocolate cupcakes topped with lemon frosting. They were small enough to fit in little mouths, and delicious to boot! Another plus: no silverware needed in the eating process. Also, baby carrots and broccoli dipped in ranch dressing and pink lemonade. Go finger foods!


  6. Cathy Says:

    Ooohh…pick me, pick me! My son’s birthday party is tomorrow & we’re going with chips, hot dogs & sausages on the grill, green salad & lots of chocolate cake and ice cream. Definitely not organic, but great for a birthday splurge! :)

    I have to admit I tend to serve the same old things all the time to my kids friends at their parties—pizza, chips, fruit tray, baby carrots, and cookies/brownies.

    Maybe this book would give me some ideas to branch out and be more adventuresome for my son’s bday party the end of July.

    Butterfly cake – just a yellow cake shaped and decorated like a butterfly. And we ate out – Chinese food!

  9. Kim Says:

    I had sammy trays – with the usual suspects.. chips/veggies/dip. And cupcakes GALORE!

    My all-time favorite food to serve at kid’s birthday parties were chicken nuggets!! I never met a kid yet who didn’t like chicken nuggets! I even had vegetarian nuggets once or twice, if we had vegetarians there. I generally serve cut-up fruit and veggies like baby carrots…with ranch dip! The dessert that was always a hit was make-it-yourself sundaes. I put out 3 different flavors of ice cream and numerous toppings and whipped cream.

  11. SHartl Says:

    Pizza….always pizza!! I add vegetables and fruit and of course cake and ice cream! Cupcakes are good if the party is away from home, otherwise it’s always a big layer cake so I have leftovers!
