If you have a picky eater who's well out of toddlerhood, do not despair! Whether you've gotten a bit off track with meals or are just starting to introduce solid foods, now is the perfect time to get going in the right direction.
After 20 years of grocery shopping an average of 2.2 times a week, preparing family meals 3.5 times a week, many of us are, frankly, happy to say goodbye to the stage in our lives where we logged 2,300 trips to the store to cover over 4,000 dinners!

I love Mexican food, but unfortunately great Mexican food is hard to find where I live. So from time to time I make my own version. I don't claim that these dishes are a hundred percent authentic, but I guarantee they taste great.
At the same time, though, there are tons of awesome easy dinner recipes that can be whipped up in 30 minutes or less. Perfect for those nights you really know you should cook, but you wish the prep work was done already. Here, five fast meals your family is sure to love...

Why not learn how to make your own yogurt or take a break from your morning omelet and try a baked egg frittata? Get creative with your everyday meals and snacks try whipping them up into a more mouth-watering dish.
