When the cooler temperatures of fall arrived, I used to make lots of soup and baked goods. I use the past tense because down south, the cooler temperatures don’t arrive until winter.
I love shortbread cookies. I especially love them because there are so many things that you can do with the simple batter: you can add flavoring or nuts to the batter to create a totally different cookie with ease. If you are feeling creative, it’s easy to sprinkle the cookies with colored sugar for a festive looking cookie.
When the kids come home from school, they are usually starving. Rather than feed them sugary or fatty snacks, I usually try to give them something moderately healthy that will fill them up until dinner time.
This is another popular family recipe from my grandmother! The story goes that a friend gave her the recipe one Christmas after giving her a batch of the cookies. Our family bakes these cookies every Christmas mostly because of that tradition. However, my kids love the cookies so much that we make them throughout year.
This is another one of my children’s favorite meals. Luckily, it’s easy and quick to make. My children love this dish so much, they often request that we make some to take to potluck suppers and other events.
This is one of my absolutely favorite “frugal” recipes. With school starting soon, expenses have increased and frugal, simple meals like this one are great budget savers. The best part is that children really seem to love this meal, especially with a salad and some fruit.
