Individual Apple Hand Pies are a tasty way to make sure everyone gets some appley goodness!
Apple season is right around the corner, and let me tell you, this makes my husband a happy man. Kevin could eat all the apple things, all the time. So naturally I’m always looking for new ways for him to get his apple fix. And that means I’ve got a few tasty treats coming your way. Without further ado, I’m officially kicking off apple season with these warm-from-the-oven Apple Hand Pies.
Use a rotisserie chicken to have Greek Chicken Wraps on the table in less than 20 minutes!
Please tell me I’m not alone. It’s 4:00, and I don’t have any idea what I’m making for dinner. I know, I’m a food blogger, but it happens to me, too. My day gets away from me, and all of the sudden the kids are asking me what’s for dinner. And that is when I turn to a rotisserie chicken for help. Make these Greek ChickenWraps, and you have a tasty dinner as well as lunch for school the next day. How’s that for a winning combo?
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins are a tasty treat to make with the August bumper crop of zucchini.
August = zucchini season.
At the beginning of zucchini season, I’m all over this simple but tasty Grilled Zucchini. We then move on to more using zucchini in more inventive ways, like in these Zucchini Feta Fritters. I almost always make a couple loaves of Zucchini Bread with Craisins at one time to throw in the freezer for the middle of winter. But then the family gets zucchinied (is that a word?) out, and I need to get creative with our zucchini intake.
I’ve never been a big fan of hiding vegetables in my kids’ food. I always want them to know what they are eating because it’s important they learn how to lead a healthy lifestyle. But sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do. And that is where the Chocolate Zucchini Muffins come into play.
Add a little variety to the lunch box with Southwestern Quinoa Salad.
Lunches for school: My biggest challenge every year.
Raise your hand if you have this same dilemma.
I’ve shared with you before about Charlie’s expansive palate, which makes packing a variety of things in his lunch pretty easy. Some days, he even asks for a GREEN SALAD. Oh, my heart, that boy!
And then there is Greta, who happens to be a little pickier. However, the one thing that Greta cannot get enough of is quinoa. Who would have thunk that? Not me; it still surprises me to this day. I started making this Southwestern Quinoa Salad this summer, and it’s her new favorite. It’s also now at the top of her school lunch requests. Coming from a girl whose knee jerk reaction to anything is chocolate, this is something big!
