- Let kids toss on whatever vegetables you have in the refrigerator. If you don't have the time to make our chunky red sauce, just substitute your favorite store-bought version.
- A spin on the classic white pizza, with a creamy combination of spinach and ricotta cheese. This recipe even won over a stubborn little spinach-phobe!
- A huge hit with our kid testers: One said this not-too-spicy dish was so good, she'd eat it every night!
- Our kid testers especially liked the crunchy strips of jicama, a mild-flavored Mexican vegetable you can find in most supermarkets.
- These noodles have great kid appeal: They're see-through with a slick, slurp-perfect texture. To save prep time, pick up precooked rotisserie chicken and pre-grated carrots at the grocery store.
- The best oatmeal cookies
- There's a surprise inside these treats: marshmallow "lava" erupting from bright-red cake. They're best eaten the day you make them, but cool completely before serving: The marshmallow creme gets quite hot.
- Soft, chewy pretzels are a great snack. When made from scratch with this simple recipe, they're even more deliciousand as much fun to create as they are to eat. Kids will love the squishy feel of the dough as they mix and knead it with their hands (you may have to help finish the kneading). Once the dough has risen, even the youngest kids can get in on twisting and pulling it into their own crazy shapes. The baking, of course, is for grown-ups, but gobbling them up is for everyone!
