It can be difficult to cook with children. However, you don’t have to worry about souffles or hollandaise. Choose a simple, hands-on recipe when searching for a child-friendly recipe.

The following Texas Reds in A Blanket recipe, for example, involves spreading cream cheese and folding refrigerated crescent rolls dough. While the sauce is microwave-safe, it can also be used on cookie sheets and hot bowls.

Texas Rio Star Grapefruit is a sweeter variety of grapefruit. Grapefruit season runs from October through May. Grapefruit should feel large for their size. That is a sign of a juicy fruit.
