Since this post last week, my children and I have been enjoying some very simple and tasty snacks. Thank you for your comments and advice!
I've also found that due to the links you provided, I've also felt rejuvenated in the kitchen. Ready for new recipes and venturing away from those oh-so-popular Midwestern hotdishes. They didn't grace our table super-often, but often enough when I was stuck in a culinary rut.
Here are a few new places to try when you need some inspiration:
America's Test Kitchen
Kraft Foods Recipes
My Kitchen Cafe
Thanks to all of the above links, this week I'm planning on adding Hearty Pasta Tomato Soup, Cheesy Chicken Vermicelli, Fun Taco Cups and Slow-Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken to our menu.
Hopefully all of the links are helpful for the next time you are stuck when your kids ask, "What's for dinner?"
If you try none of these links, might I HIGHLY suggest trying this one: Peanut Butter Crunch Snack Balls. This recipe did not disappoint! Good snack that the whole family will enjoy and it's a super easy, freezer pleaser too!
