    Terrific in a lunch box! From Cooking Light, 1988.

    Recipe #19237

    Dinner in a hurry can be as simple as rolling up a tortilla filled with healthy ingredients. For a great "brown bag" lunch, roll into waxed paper and twist the ends, party-cracker style.

    Recipe #69415

    The ultimate mall fruity shake at home! I modified this recipe one day from one i found online. I have sensitive teeth so I don't like ice much anyway. Guaranteed not to give you "slushie headache".

    Recipe #24088

    These cinnamon apples taste like a cobbler or pie without the crust. I was looking for a recipe for Cinnamon apples and all I could find were recipes for baking the whole apple - not what I wanted. After much searching I finally came across this recipe - I unfortunately cannot remember the site. It can easily be reduced to 2 or 3 apples, just watch it as it cooks. We serve this over ice cream and it is delicious. It can also be used on pancakes, waffles, or all by itself.

    Recipe #77666

    We serve this in a cookie bowl for a fancy dessert. Its very refeshing in the summer and a nice treat in the winter. Points 3.

    Recipe #122765

    This smooth, rich pudding, lower in fat than many recipes, has many variations. For chocolate almond, chocolate rum, or chocolate mint pudding, simply add either 1/4 tsp almond or rum extract, or 2 drops of peppermint extract along with the vanilla. Yum!

    Recipe #129617

    Prep time doesn't include freezing time. If you use the orange-pineapple juice, they will taste more like OJ pops than pineapple. I prefer pineapple juice only.

    This came from my mother who managed to grow two kids taller(and I mean taller!) then herself. We ate these carrots all the time! Overall is a great snack that is tasty. I suggest to adjust to your taste, some like it soggy some not, just don't make it in advance, will lose the carotene ;) Make sure to exclude raisins if prepared for infants or toddlers under 5. Use your own judgment but raisins ARE choking hazard.

    Recipe #69150

    This was on one of those recipe cards that you get in the mail from time to time. We love the taste of the pumpkin and bran - even DD and she isn't a bran eater!

    Recipe #16015

    This recipe uses less butter than the original and they still taste great. The recipe is from Dr. Cookie, which is a book that shows you how to make recipes more healthy.

    Recipe #93669

    Sensational!

    Recipe #30794

    This recipe was born out my frugal urge to redeem a big basket of very wrinkly, aging Gala Apples. I've listed the seasonings I used to add flair to this age-old method of preservation, but by all means, tells me what combos you enjoyed! The Hot Pepper Sauce (I used Tabasco) certainly added a 'kick' much appreciated in our home, but you may prefer the classical sugar-spice-and-all-things-nice variety without a touch of added heat. While this recipe was executed with a borrowed dehydrator, I would love to know people's success with the oven -- apples spread in a single layer onto a lined baking sheet and place in preheated, 300 degree F oven for 25-30 min. or at 200 degrees F for 1 to 1-1/2 hours (cooling on a wire rack as you go)....

    EXACTLY like the Orange Julius in the mall, without the stomach curdling mixture of acidic orange juice and milk/ice cream.... I also included variations including different fruit, like PEACHES & CREAM, STRAWBERRIES & CREAM, etc. I tried for years to figure out this recipe, beginning at around age 12! I finally got it one day at age 25 and now my 11 year old daughter whips them up for herself and friends after school or for breakfast.

    Recipe #60942

    Eat all you want of these creamy, delicious treats. If the kids don't beat you to them!

    Recipe #32882

    Fruit and pudding salad

    Recipe #21320

    The kids will love it!!

    Recipe #10277

    You can use any flavors or colors you like. Because these popsicles are just basically frozen jello, they don't leave a big sticky mess everywhere as they melt, great for little kids! Use Cool Whip for white layers. Ingredients are per box of jello. "Cooking time" is time for prepping and freezing one layer.

    Recipe #123732

    Here is a quick and easy one for the kids. So simple so let them help.

    Chock full of the comforting and down-home country taste of berries! Freeze your fresh berries before using, or use frozen ones purchased from the store if they're not in season! :)

    Recipe #28951

    This a great recipe to make with kids and for kids. I sent these along with my daughter for her Valentine's Day party. There are many students with allergies, such as milk, wheat, and nuts, and this was a treat they could all enjoy! Cook time is chill time.
