This year's theme is All Stars. I chose the kid, family and cafeteria manager (they teach the clubs!) favorites from the past 7 years of cooking clubs.
We start slow with basic recipes and then step it up. Here is the first week's recipe for elementary students:
Counting Sheep (Serves 1)
1 large cauliflower floret, washed and trimmed
2 cheese sticks
Cream cheese spread (lite or whipped)
Cover the bottom of the cauliflower with cheese spread. Cut the cheese sticks in half and attach the 4 pieces of cheese to the cauliflower to make legs. Dip 3 raisins in the cheese spread and attach to make eyes and a nose.

I wonder what you would call this if it were made with broccoli? Get your kids in the kitchen and have fun!
