  • Check out Real Simple's website--they have TONS of excellent recipes that are both nutritious and pretty easy to whip up.

    As for stuff I like to make...

    Enchiladas are great. Your kids will enjoy assembling them! You can buy enchilada sauce at the store and use shredded chicken, cheese, green chiles, beans, and olives.

    If you have a rice cooker, try cooking rice in chicken broth or cream of mushroom soup. Slice a sweet onion to cook with it.

    Have your kids help make and assemble kabobs. They grill easily.

    Pasta! You can do so much with it...add broccoli florets, salmon, chicken, pine nuts, basil, tomatoes, carrots, etc. Great way to pack in veggies. Make rose sauce by combining marinara with cream, or combine marinara with pesto for another good sauce.

    Make a simple pasta bake with pasta shells, cottage and ricotta cheese, and sauce.

  • Sour Cream Chicken
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1/3 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup bread crumbs
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    salt and pepper to taste
    •1. Preheat oven to 350.
    •2. Coat each chicken breast with sour cream.
    (I don't trust under-done chicken - I seared the chicken in a skillet for
    about three minutes each side first because of the relatively short bake time.)
    •3. Stir together bread crumbs, chili powder, salt and pepper.
    •4. Roll chicken breast through the bread crumb mixture.
    •5. Place in a greased (I used Pam) 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
    •6. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes - internal temp of 165

  • I generally double the meat and manwich cause we have 5 in our household.

    Sloppy Joe Crescent

    1 can manwich
    1 lb. hamburger
    6 - 8 slices cheese
    2 cans crescent rolls

    Preheat oven to temperature shown on crescent rolls. Brown hamburger. Drain, rinse. Return meat to pan and add manwich. I generally let it heat up for just a couple of minutes. Roll one can crescent rolls on the bottom of a 9" X 13" greased pan. Place half of the slices of cheese on the bottom. Pour sloppy joe into pan. Top with cheese and other can of crescent rolls. Bake til top crescent rolls are golden brown. (depending on your oven it could be a little more or a little less than the directions on the can of crescent rolls).
