It has been my go-to recipe for church bake sales for years. It makes for a great warm breakfast or a good, not-too-sweet dessert for Thanksgiving, or just a snack as well! This is an apple bread your family is sure to love.Taco CasseroleHow about a taco casserole for Taco Tuesday? This meal is a staple around my house, but plain old tacos aren't very warm and filling on a chilly night. Switch it up a little with my hearty taco casserole! Get your taco fix and stay warm friends!Kick it up a notch and add rotel style tomatoes and chiles for a spicier kick or add a layer of your favorite beans. This would also pair well with a salsa topping! This simple recipe is so versatile! Chopped bell pepper, jalapeno, would also make nice additions. We keep our main dishes fairly mild for our little kiddos, but feel free to spice it up to your own taste!Kid-Approved SmoothiesTry these kid-approved smoothies for a healthy and sure to please frugal breakfast or afternoon snack. I like to add flax and chia seeds to make these even healthier for my little ones. No joke, my children love these smoothies!Blueberry MuffinsThis is a healthier take on blueberry muffins with significantly less sugar. They are still delicious though! Try them once and you'll be hooked!Amish Style White BreadThis amish-style white bread is a staple item in our house. I make it regularly for my husband's lunches. It is great for hot sandwiches as well!
