Turkey Wraps

Rating: 4.56 stars
123

These light and tasty wraps are great for lunch, or slice them smaller and they make wonderful party appetizers or great little after-school snacks.

Apple Ladybug Treats

Rating: 4.82 stars
38

Red apples are decorated to look like lady bugs. This is a quick and fun snack that kids will enjoy making and eating. For once kids can play with their food.

School Lunch Bagel Sandwich

Rating: 4.71 stars
31

This sandwich mixes the goodness of bagels with the crunch of dill pickles. I came up with this sandwich for my son who loves bagels and cream cheese but I felt his favorite needed something extra to really make it a lunch. This is kid-tested good, and you can alter the veggies according to what your child likes.

Easy Granola Bars

Rating: 4.6 stars
885

Fantastic bars that have a lot of flexibility. You can adapt the recipe to your liking. Great for hikes, long road trips and camping as they store well and keep fairly long - unless you eat them all! Use any combination of chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut, pecans, almond slices, or any other tidbits you'd like in a granola bar.

Breakfast Cups

Rating: 4.27 stars
146

This is a good way to get the morning going. Just give yourself about an hour. They are filling and versatile. Kids can also help some.

Lunch Box Hot Hot Dogs

Rating: 4.76 stars
90

When the kids need a break from sandwiches, why not send them with a hot hot dog to warm their bellies before going out to play?

School Lunchroom Cafeteria Rolls

Rating: 4.56 stars
289

These rolls are JUST like the ones the cafeteria ladies make in the school lunch rooms! My 8-year-old daughter loves the cafeteria rolls and said my recipe was even better! You can't mess these up! They are super easy and everyone will want the recipe. We eat the leftovers for breakfast or put cheese and turkey in warmed rolls for a quick lunch!

Fresh Orange Juice

Rating: 4.43 stars
61

In response to a request about how to make fresh squeezed orange juice. It takes a little work, but it tastes much better than orange juice from concentrate.

Sloppy Joes II

Rating: 4.67 stars
7678

This is the recipe my mother used for sloppy joes and it always gets compliments!
