Know the best way to find kid-friendly meals to make – even for picky eaters? Ask the kids.  I asked my seven-year-old picky eater granddaughter when it was her turn for a pandemic summer visit, “What’s your favorite meals?” She didn’t even have to think about it… Macaroni Spaghetti ToastRead More →

Mac & Cheese – Make it with Ribeye Stay-at-home mom and dad, when was the last time you made a kid-friendly mac & cheese with ribeye steak for your littles? Ribeyes usually go on the grill for the adults. But why not for the kids? You might say, “Too expensive.” Makes sense if your children are growing teenagers.

Healthy Easter Treats What treats can you make your grandchildren when their parents have put them on a strict diet – one without sugar? Many children and adults are required to maintain a diet without sugar all of the time, every day of their lives. It’s like a culture shock for a person used to eating sweets to change over to a healthy way of eating without sugar. But imagine if everyone agreed to live without sugary foods. That would change everything, wouldn’t it? How would candy, bread, dessert, and everything-else-loaded-with-sugar-in-it companies make it? They would close their doors. I love sweets, and so doesRead More →

Help your toddler’s day start off with a hearty breakfast. One way to do this is to create fun ways to prepare eggs like these: Scramble an egg and sprinkle grated cheese on top Bake in a quiche Make an Egg-in-the-Hole – See the perfect recipe at pepperbowl.com.
