Kid and Lunchbox Friendly Recipes




So many of us are looking for quick and easy recipes that take lunchtime beyond Peanut Butter and Jelly.  Let me introduce you to my new favorite "kid friendly" recipe idea - lunch in a muffin tin.  I am the lucky owner of the Kid Approved Cookbook by Taste of Home.  It is full of fun little recipes for snacks, treats, dinners and lunches that are quick and easy to make.  Best of all, they are meant to be made with kids!

Many of the recipes in this book call for refrigerator biscuits, crescent rolls, or pizza crusts.  I prefer a to use homemade options, so I use Mary Ann's Refrigerator Roll  & Pizza Crust recipes instead of the store-bought counterparts.  These mixes are fast and easy to make, cost less and are healthier options.  For more nutritious and money-saving mixes, check out Mary Ann's "Mixing It Up with Grains" available on our website!


On a rainy day a few weeks ago, my kids and I made the Farm House BBQ Muffins (page 57) and the Frozen Fruit Salad (page 45).  They were delicious and we had a great time making them.  But we also learned something new, You can make just about anything in a muffin tin and they are the perfect size for a lunchbox meal!  So we started playing with all kinds of variations on the recipes we found in the book.

Sloppy Joe Popovers, Chili and Cornbread Muffins, Pizza Popovers, Cold Soups, etc.  We have had so much fun making these creations and freezing them for lunches when we are on the go this summer.  Try these recipes for yourself or make your own tasty creations!
