I am a mom of 4 children with the 5th currently still in the oven. I work full time outside of the home so finding quick and easy meals to make in 30 minutes or less is a top priority in our home. My little ones can be quite a handful sometimes and it can be quite a chore getting dinner ready if it takes much longer than half an hour to prepare.

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies combine whole wheat, peanut butter and Total cereal to create a nutritious yet still very flavorful cookie. The cereal adds a wonderful texture, almost like coconut. These are picky-kid approved.

Kid Friendly Chili Mac

I could never get my kids to eat chili until I came up with this recipe. Its sweet, has pasta(which is a kid favorite), and isn't too spicy. Uses only one pan/pot, makes for extremely easy clean up! Top it off with shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream and you have yourself a kid approved meal!
