QUICK TIPS

Recipe photo Italian Chicken
A busy school night does not have to mean "fast food night". Try this lightly crunchy, low-calorie chicken entree - ready in only 20 minutes.

Recipe photo Crab-Filled Crescent Wontons
Serve these tasty little bundles for a hearty after-school snack or as an easy appetizer with any Asian-themed dinner.

Recipe photo Cauliflower Coleslaw
If your kids are not coleslaw fans, ask them to try this version, made extra- creamy with vanilla yogurt. Dijon mustand and green onions add just enough "kick".

Recipe photo Cheeseburger Mexicana
Skip the Mexican drive-through and serve up a cheesy south-of-the-border meal at home in just 30 minutes.

Great Tips from You!

Q:

SAVORING SUMMER: As summer winds down, how do you squeeze in a few more family moments and memories before Back-to-School time?

A:

Tip #1 from Shana in Minneapolis, MN

We pick a few week nights or weekends in August to visit the places we meant to enjoy over the summer but didn't get to yet. This year we might choose the zoo and a baseball game. But it could be as simple as taking a slow evening walk together and then making ice cream sundaes when we get home.

Editor's Picks:
Something's Fishy & Fun

Keep summer alive just a little bit longer with sweet, cheerful reminders of family fishin' fun.
