June 8, 2009

Catch all of the GoodNCrazy Summer Series.

HELP! My Kids Are Driving Me Crazy!

You know how your kids wander into the kitchen every summer afternoon and go.. hey mom I’m hungry. What can I eat?! And you want to answer… ‘Go make yerself some dang quesaDILLas!’

Well here’s your new answer:

Go Make yerself some dang Monkey Bread!

This Recipe is courtesy of the fabulous, the seriously funny, the shoe lovin’, and the always amazing foodie:

RACHEL of A Southern Fairytale!


We made a kid friendly test kitchen out of this recipe. I handed Sadie (11) and Sassy (8) the recipe, made sure they knew where all the ingredients were, and walked away….

I give you:

Quite possibly the easiest Kid Friendly Recipe in the world. Maybe the Universe!

Take it away Rachel!


Does this picture make your mouth water? Rachel says Monkey Bread is one of her favorite breakfasts because it’s easy, tonguegasmically delectable, has a fun name and it’s so versatile.


She serve this with Milk, Coffee and Fresh Fruit. It’s fabulous for Brunches, Holiday Breakfasts, Bible Studies, Baby Showers, you get the idea.~~~~~~~~

Want to check out how easy these are to make? {HINT: you start with store bought biscuits!}
Please click on over to Rachel’s House and she will SHOW you the recipe! Oh my gosh ours are in the oven right now and they smell soooooo good!

A big thanks to Rachel. I think she is amazing.. and… so are these treats!


More Kid Friendly Recipes:

Cake Mix Cookies. My kids make these about once a week. I keep the pantry Betty Crocker stocked precisely for this purpose!

Frozen YogoNana Bites. I am so all over these… I’m thinking I should try this with some sort of chocolate variation, what do you think?

Kid Friendly Gingersnaps from CandH Sugar. These totally bring me back to my childhood. My mom made cookies a lot like this! I heart molasses in anything!

Have you heard of a Tall Giraffe? Well you have now! Check out Joy’s Submission!

Tank angry

Are your kids driving you crazy? Are they bored stiff?
Tired of pulling your hair out, trying to come up with great ideas?

Ready for some awesome solutions?

Or hey… do you have some great summer-time fabulous suggestions to share?

Welcome to the GoodNCrazy summer series where we will:

  • A. Beat the Heat with your Kids

  • B. Stop the Whining

  • C. Save Mom’s Sanity

  • D. All of the Above!
How you ask?
Once a week, I’ll be listing kid friendly—help a mom out— ideas!
Kid Friendly Cuisine.. and I don’t mean ‘you make it they eat it.’ I mean Kid COOKING friendly cuisine… I’ve roped a few of my favorite foodie bloggers into helping me out. My kids will try the recipes out first. So I promise they will be good!
Kid Friendly Crafts.. yes.. the kind they can do basically on their own! (The best kind huh?)
Kid Activities... ideas, places, stuff to do with kids this summer!
and
Mom Crazy Finds for your Kids… fun kid stuff, creative solutions for kid problems, and more!

Let’s Kick It Off!

FIRST: I want to introduce you to an outdoor active campaign sponsored by Grandparents.com!

Called Go Play OutSide! You don’t have to be a grandparent to log your kids’ outdoor hours.. I’ve logged mine this week— have you? Need some outdoor ideas? No Problem!

There are 97 outdoor fun ideas to get you outdoors. (YES I Said Ninety-Seven! Wow!) In easy to download PDF format. I’m looking at making a sundial, playing flashlight tag under the stars, playing frisbee and making a grass leaf whistle.. great ideas and most of them are free, time spent with kids, time spent outdoors… perfect to save this mom’s sanity, how ’bout yours?

SECOND: I know they shouldn’t watch too much TV. But sometimes (admit it) it’s a necessary evil to help stop the whining! Here’s my favorite solution: When it’s mid afternoon siesta time, send them downstairs to watch a video, or play some video games. And I’m totally grooving on these amazing YogiPoof Bean Bags? I might have to join them!


THIRD: I mentioned video games… here’s one to counteract the afternoon siesta.

The new Wii EA Active.

We are loving using it as a family activity! Watch my kids play, they are so intense… and even my 4yrold straps on the leg strap and gets his little work out on! Take the 30 day challenge!

See the whole Summer Series and Save Mom’s Sanity!
