Enchiladas
This was a good basic enchilada recipe. It was somewhat bland, but that was a plus for my young boys. I did add taco seasoning to the meat, used corn tortillas, and used a "Mexican" blend of cheese. Again, very easy, no brainer dinner that I served with refried beans and Mexican rice.

Chunky Monkey Pancakes
I'm giving these four stars because they were easy to make (as I'd never made pancakes from scratch), cooked beautifully, and fluffed up nicely. However, I guess my kids (6 and 2) just aren't cut out for super-sweet pancakes. My six-year-old called them "disgusting" and my two-year-old ate around the chocolate. I served this with nothing but butter on top, but it was still too rich. I'll definitely keep the batter mixture and try again as banana nut or blueberry, though.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This has become a family staple. I first followed the recipe, but have since adjusted to my family's taste. I add seasonings, sometimes use onion soup mix instead of chopped onion, and add in baby carrots and potatoes. I also season the biscuits with a little salt and pepper, flatten, and cut into pieces. I use one can of biscuits, serve everyone, and then add in the other can with a bit more cream of chicken and water. This helps the biscuits cook better and nothing overflows (since I put veggies in)! While my hubby likes traditional chicken and dumplings, he finds the addition of veggies more filling. He loves this so much he told his mother she needed to get my recipe instead of making her traditional Tennessee recipe. My two year old and six year old boys also love this; it's very kid-friendly. Great for busy workdays...in fact we have open-house this week and are looking forward to having a warm dinner waiting for us at home.
