The Ultimate Little-Foodie Playdate

Hosted by goop’s food editor Thea Baumann and The Glow’s Violet Gaynor, Monday’s #mini♥️me party at NYC’s Tacombi restaurant was the perfect (and by far the cutest) way to celebrate Old Navy’s new, color-happy Havana Nights collection. Staying on theme, the folks at Tacombi served festive food and drinks (and were nice enough to share a few of their killer recipes, below) while Chef Thea led an interactive baking lesson for the day’s guests of honor, a group of Odette Williams apron-clad mini-chefs-in-training. The lesson plan: mini bundt cakes the kiddos got to decorate with edible flowers before presenting to mom in custom PieBox gift boxes.

For Mom and Her Mini-me

Fiesta, Fiesta!

We have yet to meet a kid who doesn’t like tacos (and cake!), so it was no surprise that Monday’s menu was a huge hit. Here are three of our favorites (slightly adapted from the Tacombi originals to make them more kid-friendly and a teensy bit healthier) plus the Baked bundt cake recipe, which makes the sweetest Mother’s Day gift.

  • Avocado Tostadas with Pickled Red Onions

    Avocado Tostadas with Pickled Red Onions

    These tostadas are a great after-school snack or easy weeknight dinner the whole family will love. If you don’t have time to fry the tortillas, you can buy pre-made tostadas at most grocery stores.

  • Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos

    Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos

    These vegetarian tacos are insanely good; they’re also a total breeze to make. Enlist the kiddos to help assemble for a fun, impromptu taco party.

  • Agua de Sandia

    Agua de Sandia

    Agua frescas are usually made with a crazy amount of sugar, so we subbed cassava syrup in our version of Tacombi’s delicious watermelon agua fresca. Littles will love to help blend the mixture and stir in the syrup.

  • Mini Olive Oil Orange Bundt Cakes

    Mini Olive Oil Orange Bundt Cakes

    We love this simple, not-too-sweet olive oil orange cake recipe from NYC’s Baked bakery. We opted to make 10 mini cakes (since they’re the perfect size for gifting), but this amount of batter will also make one 10-inch bundt cake.
