  • 5 a day guaranteed A great way of getting kids to get their 5 portions of fruit and veg a day is to make kabobs! Simply chop up chunks of fruit and veg, and let the kids make their own by sliding the chunks onto wooden skewers. They have great fun msking their own food and experimenting with different colours and patterns, and as it's a finger food, they will enjoy eating it too. Foods to try are Cherry tomatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms, apple, satsuma, banana, grapes....the list is endless and they have such fun experimenting that they dont think twice when it comes to eating them.

  • A faster way to make sanwiches When I'm trying to make sandwiches for my kids and I can't find everything I need...I get VERY fustrated. So, I made the "sandwich box". I took a clear small tupperware box and filled it w/ all the samdwich essentials, meats, cheese, jams, bread, condiments. Whenever I go to make a sandwich, I pull out the box and everything is right there! HUGE timesaver! Submitted By: (Added: 8-Feb-2007 Hits: 0 Rating: 9.00 Votes: 1) Rate It

 

  • A snack your picky kid might enjoy One of the few things my almost 3-year-old will eat is baby carrots and Kraft/Seven Seas Green Goddess brand dressing as a dip. She will actually eat just about any veggie as long as she has this dressing. I love it myself- it's very refreshing, like cucumber Ranch :) Submitted By: Stacey(Added: 20-Feb-2002 Hits: 0 Rating: 5.50 Votes: 4) Rate It

 

  • Adding herbs/seasonings If you are like me and don't necessarily measure (the "guesstimate method" :-) ) when adding herbs/seasonings to a dish try this safety tip. Instead of just pouring the herbs directly into the pot and risking overkill or pouring them into your hand, use the top from the herb jar. Pour the desired amount into the lid and then into the pot. That way if you get too much you can return it to the jar, it hasn't gotten oils from your hands on it and you haven't over-seasoned the dish.

  • Afternoon meals Often - in a typical Medditeranean fashion - we will invite our dinner guests over for a two o'clock meal...instead of a usual six or seven o'clock feast. This is much better with young children because later at night they tend to be more tired and harder to handle. An afternoon meal can replace lunch and dinner and allow your guests to maybe stay a little bit longer but without having to try to put the children down to sleep or leaving after only a couple of hours.

  • Aloha Pudding 1 box vanilla,lemon or banana flavored pudding. 1 sugar cube. 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Soak sugar cube in lemon juice for 1 hour, make packaged pudding. Put sugar cube in pudding and light with lighter to watch the pudding flambe. KIds will be amazed that they can eat the pudding after flame is out.

  • Another use for spaghetti noodles Instead of using a toothpick to check if a cake is done, an uncooked spaghetti noodle will do the task just fine. Submitted By: Jane R.(Added: 30-Apr-2001 Hits: 0 Rating: 10.00 Votes: 2) Rate It

 

  • baby food Instead of using sugary jelly on toast, try peach, apricot, apple, or berry baby food. It is much healthier than jellies or jams. Also good on waffles or pancakes!! Submitted By: Heather(Added: 14-Mar-2005 Hits: 0 Rating: 10.00 Votes: 2) Rate It

 

  • BETTER THAN BISCUITS... Scones. If you have never made scones, they are TOO easy, so try it. 2/3 cup of self-rising flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons butter, 1 egg, 6 tablespoons milk. Mix with hands and put the ball of dough on a floured surface. Make into a circle about 1/2 inch thick, then cut into 6 triangles, cook on greased griddle for 5 minutes each side, OR put them in the oven for about 9 minutes.....if you like, brush tops with egg whites......also if you want them sweeter, sprinkle sugar on top of egg whites. Better than biscuits and easier!!!!!! You hardly have to handle the dough at all... Try it, you'll like it. Submitted By: JOY OBODO(Added: 20-Aug-2002 Hits: 0 Rating: 0 Votes: 0) Rate It

 

  • Boiling Pasta When boiling pasta, put a wooden spoon across the top of the pot and it will not bubble over. Submitted By: Kristie Porter(Added: 25-Sep-2005 Hits: 0 Rating: 0 Votes: 0) Rate It

 

  • Bread Shapes To help my 3 year old learn his shapes, I simply cut all his bread food (toast, sandwiches, etc) into shapes. Yes, it takes longer to cut a circle out of a piece of toast, but now he will tell me which shape he wants and he can identify them, too. His friends love this and will often ask to eat a "triangle" when the come to our house. He's learned his shapes without a struggle.

  • Burned on food in pots and pans For pots and pans that have food badly burned on to the surface, soak overnight, or a brief period with dish washing machine powdered detergent. In the morning, the pans can be wiped out. I've used this trick in my restaurant. Submitted By: Ann Gilmer Furrer(Added: 12-Oct-2000 Hits: 0 Rating: 9.00 Votes: 3) Rate It

 

  • Butternut Squash Wash butternut squash and wrap in foil and bake whole in the oven at 350 for one hour or until done. Unwrap, cut in two pieces and scoop out seeds and salt and pepper to taste. Submitted By: Madeline(Added: 2-Oct-2002 Hits: 0 Rating: 0 Votes: 0) Rate It

 

  • Buying Bagged Apples When I buy bagged Granny Smith apples, I count apples. Most times there are only 10 - 11 apples in a bag of Granny Smiths. But sometimes, when I count, I can actually get about 14 apples in a bag. Yes they are smaller, but who really needs an apple the size of a softball and weighs 1/2 lb each.
