Back-to-School Recipes

I thought I'd gather up a collection of some kid-friendly recipes and ideas as many of us embark upon a new school year this time of year.  Some of these are breakfast ideas while some are more after school snack-centered.  You'll find ideas for creative ways to pack lunches for your kiddos and a few ideas for quick, fun dinners that will be sure to please picky palettes.  Some of these work great, too, if you're assigned to bring snacks for the classroom - the Broken Glass Jello is perfect to make using your school colors or holiday colors.

The links below correspond to the numbered photos above for easier reference.

  1. Make-Ahead Freezer Smoothie Packets
  2. Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
  3. No-Bake M&M Granola Bars
  4. Slow Cooker Overnight Steel Cut Oats
  5. Morning Glory Muffins
  6. No-Bake Energy Bites
  7. Individual Mexican Dips "To Go"
  8. Fiesta Taco Wonton Cups
  9. Broken Glass Jello
  10. Quick and Easy Mini Pizzas

  1. I tried to click on your "Slow Cooker Recipe Collection" but the link address says "granola." Fix please, because I would LOVE that link!
