Recipe News: summer lunches

"The summer is hectic with play dates, summer camps and swim lessons, so it’s important to be prepared when it comes to feeding your children lunch. Eating out can become a financial drain on the family and it also prevents your kids from new and different food experiences that the summer allows them to have.

Chicken Skewers

Summer is the perfect time to introduce new foods to your children. It’s easier for you to find something new they like when you’re with them and can offer lots of options throughout the day, rather than risk sending them to school with a new food they’re unsure about. At school, there’s usually a light snack and lunch and without something you know they’ll eat, a bad lunch could leave them hungry, tired and disinterested in learning.

This summer keep your kids on a meal and snack regimen to ensure they’re getting the most out of every day. Meals should consist of a protein, starch, fruit and vegetable and a snack should consist of a protein and a grain. Treats are something completely different. Those are the wonderful decadent sweets of summer that we all remember as being one of the best parts. Kids need treats and need to feel like kids, but in moderation. Don’t let the treat be the meal."

Recipe News: Lemonade Chicken

"Dyann Shaver from Madras, Ore., was looking for a recipe she has lost for making a nontraditional type of barbecued chicken that used concentrated lemonade in the sauce. She said she found the recipe in an article about barbecuing in Better Homes and Garden magazine in the 1970s.

Steve Newman from Santa Rosa, Calif., shared his recipe for making barbecued chicken with lemonade concentrate. He said that while concentrated lemonade might seem like a surprising ingredient, this chicken never fails to please. He also said that he sometimes substitutes limeade or orange juice concentrate with equally tasty results.

Recipe News: Make summer super with potluck-perfect recipes

"From block parties to backyard barbecues, summer is when people get together and enjoy the delectable tastes of the season. The classic American potluck is always a favorite gathering, especially when friends, family and neighbors bring out their best dishes for everyone to enjoy.

The perfect recipes for summer parties are ones that are quick and easy - providing maximum flavor for minimum time spent in the kitchen. When it comes to cooking for a crowd, go with something that will reliably get rave reviews, while keeping in mind whom you're cooking for. If it's a crowd with a more sophisticated palate, you can try something a little more adventurous. If it is a group with notoriously picky kids, go a little more mild with kid-pleasing classics. If it's a big enough crowd, you might even want to try both. "
