If you’re like me you are always looking for a new recipe to nourish your family, but cookbooks can get expensive and what’s the chance your family will even eat most of the recipies? For me the chance of that ever happening is pretty slim. KG won’t eat “green things” (herbs), lettuce (salad), baked bean, anything new; in fact, it might be simpler to write what she WILL eat. Green beans, peas, corn ON THE COB (not off), mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, spaghetti, chicken, hamburgers (sometimes), hamburger helper, pizza…you get the idea, safe food. Hubby, the same deal…not open to much, and I can see that KJ is following right along in their footsteps. I, on the other hand, am open to new tastes and flavors…no, I CRAVE new tastes and flavors. I want to cook out of my comfort zone and still stay within my comfort zone…you know? Am I making sense? Well…I have discovered a few great websites which feed my need for new ideas, but don’t eat my wallet at the same time. Here are just a few of my favorites:

Canned Food Alliance
Dare Foods (Makers of the Breton crackers)
Domino Sugar
Eden Foods
Food Network
Land O’Lakes
Reynolds Kitchens

I know there are thousands of webstes available to you thanks to the handy dandy internet and I am always looking for new recipes. I would love to hear some of your favorite recipes or online resources. For more great Works for Me Wednesday ideas, check out Rocks In My Dryer!

Hello everyone! I promised yesterday I would post my recipe for my family’s Travel’n Trail Mix, so while I have a moment of quiet before the madness I am going to quickly post this.


2 cups Wheat Chex

1 1/2 cup Pretzels

1/4 cup dry roasted, salt free peanuts

1/4 cup Craisin/Raisin mix

1/4 cup m&m (I used leftover from Easter)

Throw all the ingredients in a large Ziploc bag and shake gently. Serve. Ziploc bag also works well for storage and one the go eating!

This is just my family’s favorite way to eat trail mix. I frequently trade out different ingredients and try out new flavors. I would love to hear all of your favorite recipes for on the go munching.
