Motherhood is awesome… but one of my biggest challenges is having one child that is a very picky eater. My younger daughter is a carb and salt-lover. Any mention of fruits and veggies and she’s immediately resistant. The list of foods that she likes to eat is very short. We… literally… have… a… list… It’s taped to the inside of our pantry cabinet door. Not joking.
Thankfully, over the years, I’ve compiled enough recipes that she will actually eat. Recently, we added this new one, which doesn’t happen very often! She heard about this Easy Microwave Pizza Bubble Bread in her 7th grade Home EC class at school. Imagine my excitement when she called me one day on my way home from work and asked me to pick up the ingredients for a recipe she wanted to make!!! We now keep the ingredients on-hand, just in case she feels like making this for dinner and she makes it herself. Here is the link to the full recipe and instructions.
If you have a seriously picky eater like I do, you are always looking for recipes that they'll actually eat. I have about 30+ recipes posted on my blog at this point, and just went through all of them. I literally only found 6 that she willingly eats!
Twist on Trader Joe's Gnocchi - uses 2 types of frozen TJ's gnocchi, plus tomato paste, garlic and basil
3 Ingredient Pressure Cooker Ranch Pork Tenderloin - Just pork, Cream of Chicken Soup and Ranch powder!
Grandma's Spaghetti Sauce - much better than sauce from a jar! Easy, but tastes like you cooked all day.
Cheesy Potato Soup - easier recipe that uses Orieda Hash Brown potatoes
How to Make Broth from Rotisserie Chicken - this is the base of chicken noodle soup that she likes
Step 1: Ingredients
1 (6 ounce; 5 biscuits) package refrigerated Pillsbury Grands Jr. Biscuits
½ cup pizza sauce (Contadina Squeeze Pizza Sauce)
¼ teaspoon italian seasoning
½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
Step 2: Prep Before Cooking in Microwave
- a microwave safe 9" round dish
- a microwave safe bowl to put in the middle - helps it to cook evenly
- some type of microwave lid to cover the dish as it cooks - recommendation in link
