Sides- Honey Curried Carrots-
Steam or boil sliced carrots until they are cooked to your liking.
Toss them in a hot skillet with some butter and a drizzle of honey.
Stir and swirl around until honey and butter are melted and mixed well.
Add a pinch of curry powder. (Careful, curry can be strong.)
Stir to distribute, then put in a dish to serve.
No real measurements here as it is all up to how much you like each of the ingredients, but combined together gives the carrots a nice sweet savory, but decidedly different, taste. Cheesy Potatoes
Make regular mashed potatoes however you normally like them.
While hot, stir in shredded cheese and mix until melted.
(You may need to add some extra butter or cream if they become too thick.)
The type and amount of cheese is up to you. I personally believe one can never
have too much cheesy goodness.
It looks nice if you put in into a casserole dish, sprinkle the top with a little extra cheese and parika, then brown the top in the oven.

Both are pretty much the same, but the reviews have some great ideas on different fruit fillings.
This is super easy and I've made it with just about every fruit or fruit filling (canned or from scratch) that you can think of.
You can make an adult version with a spirited fruit filling, or a mild one for younger eaters with just fresh berries or sliced pears in a simple sauce.
