I came across a website today that I'd have loved when my kids were small. It's called Gourmet Mom on the Go, and it's got some GREAT ideas for fun foods to make for kids. Don't be intimidated by the "gourmet" label--they look like easy enough recipes to me.

Check it out!

Mmmmm...beef stew....

I'm making steak florentine, but I'm using pork cubed steak rather than beef. It sounds difficult, but it's not:

Cube Steak Florentine

* 1 (10 ounce) package chopped spinach, thawed and drained
* 1 (2 7/8 ounce) can French-fried onions
* 1 cup colby-monterey jack cheese, shredded
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 4-6 cube steaks
* 2-3 teaspoons dijon-style mustard
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1/2 teaspoon paprika
* 1/2 teaspoon pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Spray 13x9x2 inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
3. In a medium bowl, combine spinach, French fried onions, Colby Jack cheese and salt.
4. Mix well.
5. Spread a cube steak with about 1/2 teaspoon of mustard, then top with an even layer of spinach mixture& press to flatten.
6. Roll up, jelly roll style and set aside.
7. Repeat for remaining cube steaks.
8. Place remaining spinach mixture into the bottom of the pan and place cube steak spirals on top.
9. Combine oil, paprika, pepper and garlic powder and spread over cube steaks.
10. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes in preheated oven.
11. Uncover and bake for 10 minutes longer.

Only I'm using 1/2 cup of mozzarella and 1/2 cup cheddar, since I have those on hand. And when it's cooking the last 10 minutes after the foils is taken off, I'm going to spoon jarred spaghetti sauce over the rolls and serve them with cooked spaghetti and a wedge salad. I've never made this recipe before, but it sounds YUM. smile.gif

Oooooooooooooooooooh, there's even a recipe on there for homemade Girl Scout Samoas! And it's EASY! You start with shortbread cookies, then add the toasted cocnut and chocolate!

If you check the website out, look at the spooky shepherd's pie recipe.

So many neat things for kids!

Oh.
My.
Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooodness!

You should try this recipe from her website:

Creamy Cinnamon Squares

Ingredients:
2 cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
c. white sugar
2 (8 oz. each) packages cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla

Topping:
c. white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:
Spread 1 crescent roll package on bottom of greased 9 x 13 cake pan. Mix together 2 packages cream cheese, c. sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla and spread on top of crescent roll. Spread 2nd crescent roll package on top of mixture. Mix c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle on top of 2nd crescent roll. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes (I cooked mine for about 25 minutes.). Cool for awhile, then pop into the fridge until completely cold. Cut into squares and enjoy!


I'm NOT kidding. Try it. I made it today, and it's SO good and SO easy! I used Kroger crescent rolls and Kroger cream cheese, so it was also inexpensive.

Ours didn't make it into the fridge stage...yet. After we had dinner and I was out of the room, my son cut into it. So we both had some. The rest will get refrigerated.

I'll be making this again. Mmmm.
