How to Make Croutons Video

A crouton recipe might seem a little unusual to you, but I think its actually quite useful…and timely. It’s a busy time of year, but it’s also a time that you’re hopefully home with the kids and want to come up with some fun and easy activities. The inspiration for this video came when I made a huge dish of stuffing for Thanksgiving. My eyes were obviously way too big when I ordered two huge loaves of challah to make it (the people at the bakery must have thought I was feeding a small army with them). I only wound up using one loaf and I didn’t want the other to go to waste, so Chloe and I cut it up into cubes, along with all of the other partially used loaves of bread I had sitting around, and toasted them up to make croutons.

I love bread, but croutons take it to the next level. Crunchy and golden they’re delicious to eat in so many different ways: arranged on a board with a variety of cheeses, including our beloved Mini Baby Bel; on top of a nice bowl of warm soup...

Maple Roast Sunflower Seeds

Maple Roast Sunflower Seeds from Weelicious

There are less than 9 days till Christmas! How did that happen? No matter how hard as I try to get ahead of myself in the gift department, time always seems to slip away from me. For past holidays I’ve made and gifted everything from Gingerbread Men Cookies to Double Chocolatey Hot Cocoa in a Jar, but sometimes the most simple gifts — like these Maple Roast Sunflower Seeds — make the best ones.

All you have to do for this easy recipe is put all of the ingredients in a bowl, toss, dump onto a baking sheet and then bake until golden. When the sunflower seeds come out of the oven they have a nutty, crunchy flavor with a perfect touch of sweetness from the maple syrup. Once you eat a handful, I guarantee you won’t be able to stop yourself from eating the whole batch.

YumBox Giveaway from Weelicious - 5 Winners!

When Kenya and Chloe were toddlers and I was running them around regularly to music class, the library and the park in between naps, I remembered the dreaded feeling of what to pack their snack food in and how to offer them the right balance nutritionally. When it comes to snacking and lunches for young kids, I find the same way as I do about bento box-style lunch boxes for school lunch. You don’t want your compartments to feel too small or too big, they must be just right.

Crispy Onion Rings Video

You might think that making homemade onion rings is time consuming or just downright difficult. Well, I’m here to dispel those notions. It’s so easy! Watch this Crispy Onion Rings Video and get a few quick tips and tricks to making the crunchiest, sweetest and healthiest onion rings that your family is sure to love.

Although I love fried onion rings, they’re not something you can eat all the time. So I feel much better making these baked Crispy Onion Rings. The outside is coated with bread crumbs so they have the crisp outer coating you expect onion rings to have, while their insides are nice and tender. The recipe works great with yellow, red, Maui (our favorite), or Vidalia onions to dredge in the bread crumbs and place on an awesome cookie sheet.

Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Bites Video

How often do you hear the word meatloaf and immediately lose your appetite. Just the name can make you feel heavy. As a kid, I so wanted to like meatloaf, but honestly, it just wasn’t my favorite dinnertime fare. My mom used to make it with big hunks of bell pepper, onions and never enough ketchup for my taste. To me it always felt like a dolled up brick of meat.

However, when I grew up, for whatever reason there was something appealing to me about the idea of making meatloaf for my own family (call it nostalgia), and I was determined to make sure my kids enjoyed it. I always felt like part of my own aversion to meatloaf was the fact that it came in a big boring loaf shape with zero visual appeal.

Watch this short Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Bites Video to see how by adding a touch of cheese, some chopped vegetables for added nutrition and preparing everything in little muffin cups completely transforms traditional meatloaf into something a hundred times more exciting for kids (and...
