To Learn How to Make Recipe
#1 Natural Peanut Butter HACK
Here’s a quick tip to get that peanut butter mixed that is so hard to stir. Use a dough hook with your hand mixer. Hold the jar tight so that the oil does not spill. Make sure the dough hook is inserted into the mixer correctly, then turn on the mixer and blend until oil is gone and you have peanut butter that is the correct consistency. This saves time for you and for your hands!
#2 Dressing Up Your Salad HACK
Add a little ranch dressing to the bottom of your container FIRST and THEN add the salad ingredients you like. We added some tomatoes, lettuce carrots, and sunflower seeds.
Right before you’re ready to eat the salad (with the lid still on) go ahead and shake it up. Your salad will be evenly covered in salad dressing.
#3 Hot Macaroni & Broccoli HACK
Use frozen macaroni and cheese of your choice. Add fresh broccoli (incorporating veggies) as much as you or your kiddo will eat before microwaving. Cook according to cook time on the macaroni and cheese package. Cover BEFORE putting it in the microwave to prevent any splatter. Scoop it all into a thermos and your mac & cheese will stay warm until you’re ready to eat it.
#4 Abracadabra Kabobs HACK
We made these using cute, colorful little abracadabra magic wands (we found ours at the dollar store). These were made of plastic with no sharp ends. Tip: have the kids be sure to bring home the wand so you can wash and reuse them again.
We had turkey string cheese cut up into little sections, grape tomatoes, olives and we alternated the ingredients on the kabobs. Serve with crackers…they’re magically delicious.
#5 PB Bananarama Rap HACK
This one’s fast and easy. Grab a tortilla, spread peanut butter, then spread applebutter or applesauce. Then get a banana, peel it, break it in half and then roll up your tortilla. Cut the rolled up tortilla in half before putting it into tinfoil…and that’s a wrap!
#6 Quick Chik’n Nugget Sandwich.
Microwave three or four chicken nuggets, per package directions. Use a sandwich round, lettuce, mayonnaise, cheese and pickles (or top with whatever you or your child likes). Put it all together, and you have a quick chik’n nugget sandwich.
Eat! Talk! Enjoy!
