wanting some new recipes for picky eaters..

In our family there are a LOT of picky eaters.. and I'm wondering what some good recipes would be to change up some of the boring recipes that we've exhausted! Most of us won't eat onions, I won't make anything from a pig, but most other meats are fine.. sea food is out because of allergies. Basically we are meat (chicken, turkey, beef) and potatoes type of people, with veggies as a side dish. But we also like pasta dishes as well.

  • Beef Pie Homesteader
    Kids will love it - and adults too (who doesn't love those Pillsbury crescent rolls?). It is very filling, serve it with a lettuce salad, and you'll be set.

  • Combine first 8 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently (this can also be done in the microwave; use a tempered glass bowl, like pyrex, cook for 20 seconds, stir, repeat until smooth). Remove from heat. Cook pasta in boiling water 8 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add tofu, onions, and carrot; drain. Place pasta mixture in a large bowl. Add peanut butter mixture; toss gently.
