PostHeaderIcon #Recipe: Fool Proof Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread Recipe - DelightfulChaos.com
If you are sitting there telling yourself, “I wish I could bake stuff like that.”, you can! This is probably the easiest Zucchini Bread recipe I have made. Everything goes into one bowl, mix and bake! As long as you set a timer, you are good to go on baking this. You can always half the recipe and try a smaller batch if you think you can’t do it. YOU CAN! I do not like zucchini but I could eat this bread all day long. I know it’s not the healthiest way to eat my vegetables but, it’s better than not I suppose? I have also been toying with the amount of sugar. The original recipe called for 2 cups. I have gotten it down to 1 2/3 so far. It still tastes just as delicious.

PostHeaderIcon Easy #Halloween #Classroom Treat Ideas For #Teachers

School Friendly Halloween Treats - DelightfulChaos.com
I spent most of Spencer’s kindergarten year in the classroom. I would help the teacher out with whatever she needed. During 2nd grade, I bonded with his teacher over our love for Pinterest. I helped her with many food related projects because, as she put it, “You’re way better at that stuff than I am”. She honestly was amazing! We did find it a task to find thngs to make, with the kids, that wouldnt end up being confusing or a total disaster.

I decided to put together a list of things that would be fun, and seem fairly easy, for teachers to make with their students. If you have any that you would like to add, please leave a comment below with your link. Remember, we are looking for simple, kid friendly ideas. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon #Recipe Scrumptious and Easy Mashed Potato Pancakes

Easy Mashed Potato Pancakes - DelightfulChaos.com #RecipeI am a little late getting this Potato Pancake recipe post up. When I posted my photo to Instagram, it should have gone up the next day. Sadly, I became sick and did not do much else other than sleep. I apologize for making you wait but trust me, it was worth it!

Leftovers are not usually a thing in our home. I already seem to cook for an army of boys and they don’t leave anything behind. I always seem to make way more mashed potatoes than I need, for 6 people. While I am not a big fan of regular pancakes, I love potato pancakes but, I have never tried to make them before. Wait, probably because there are never any left over. Well, I lucked out. The boys graciously left me a ton so, my attempt at it was born.

I am so glad that I decided to go ahead and do these. They are absolutely delicious. The chives are an amazing flavor in these. If you love baked potatoes, you will love these Potato Pancakes. It is a quick and easy breakfast to throw together. I don’t recommend making these in advance. They are best served fresh and slightly crispy. If left in the fridge over night, they lose the crisp. If you don’t mind that, by all means, cook ahead!

The kids can definitely get involved making these too. Royal loves to flip the breakfast. Whether it’s pancakes or french toast, he always gets in there and wants to do it. Hopefully he will grow up to have the same love for cooking, and baking, as I do.

If you have an questions, or requests, please feel free to leave a comment below. Also, if you give them a try, please come back and tell me what you think. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Super Simple & Quick Kid Friendly Snacks

Being a mom of these crazy boys, I am always looking for fast, simple and cheap lunch recipes. Snacks are a big deal for us. I also like to find a way to use up any left overs from the night before. I am usually pretty good at coming up with new things for dinner but, sometimes I just run out of ideas, or don’t have a lot of time.

Here are a few ideas for you.

Tortilla Roll Ups – Spread cream cheese and a couple slices of deli meat onto a flour tortilla… roll it up and eat! I like mine with honey ham. You can eat it burrito style or slice it up into pinwheels.

Vanilla Fruit Salad – Very easy! Fill a salad bowl with large squares of fresh fruit. Whatever kind you like or what is on sale! Pour a carton of Vanilla Yogurt (it has to be vanilla flavored!) over the fruit for a sauce. That’s it!

Traditional Pudding Pops – Prepare a box of instant pudding just like it says on the box. Pour it into popcycle molds and pop it in the freezer. We like Chocolate best but, there are so many kinds of pudding available so, have fun with it! The cheesecake was delicious also!
