Who are the Tiny Tarts?

The Tiny Tarts are the Country Tart's two young daughters who help out so much in the kitchen, in the creation of this blog and in the production of the SERVING up a SMILE weekly column, that it only seems fitting that they get their own space to share what it is they do.

What's Ice Cream?

The tarts forget all about the creamy stuff when fresh, local watermelons arrive at the market!  For what it's worth, even young children recognize that some of life's best treats arrive only during the summer and for a very short period of time. 

As parents, we can use our own excitement for summer's bounty in teaching children to eat their veggies (and grains, as seen above).

If they grow it, they're more inclined to eat it. Get them involved in the garden!

The same goes for foods that they've harvested themselves. Not only are children learning an important lesson on the work it takes to get food on their table, but they will probably be more willing to try foods that they've collected with their own hands.

And climbing a tree is involved, the fruit will surely taste much sweeter. ~

Pudding for Breakfast

I woke up Sunday morning and I told my mom that I wanted oatmeal for breakfast. Then she made me something more special. Here is a picture of my breakfast and my mom has put the recipe here.
