Tastes of Orange

For the holiday meals, Easter being no exception I try to serve a fresh home cooked meal along with "live" foods. Just meaning raw fruits, vegetables and healthy choices. This year I went with an "Orange" theme. The color orange that is and it was certainly festive & everyone enjoyed it. For my two younger nephews I took a cupcake pan filled it with an assortment of "Tastes of Orange" for them to rate. They were so excited and couldn't wait to dig in. They both tried everything but especially got a kick out of the little kumquats. Even their older brother who is 16 came & joined in on the fun.

How to Make Tastes of Orange

Step-by-Step

  1. I set up a cupcake pan with all the goodies for the kids to try.
  2. Nephews are ready to try all the different "orange" colored different items in the tray and rate by which one most tastes like an orange.
  3. They both had a dip to use if they wanted to.
  4. The kumquat really got them good. They puckered up, twisted their faces a little but somehow loved them too. LOL
  5. In light of trying to get my nephews to eat fresh fruit and veggies I decide it would be good for all of us. So, here is the appetizers for Easter Dinner along with some deviled eggs too.
  6. Here is how the voted on the "Tastes of Orange".

    Least favorite was the orange colored cauliflower but the point is they "ate it". ----mission accomplished.
  7. Everyone received fresh oranges, homemade granola, Orange Cranberry Jam w/Crystallized Ginger and Lemon & Orange flavored chocolate dipped preztels in their baskets.
