Recipes

I need new recipes. I feel like I've been in a total cooking rut and Ryan and I haven't even been married 4 years yet! I have tried two new recipes this week, they both went over okay, but nothing to write home about. And, of course, Beth wouldn't eat either of them. She's in a totally picky eating stage and I don't think she's eaten anything but eggos, yogurt, applesauce, and string cheese for the past several weeks (unless its candy, fruit snacks or cookies of course). So does anyone have any brilliant recipes that are kid friendly? We are trying to eat healthy around here and I just can't seem to come up with anything that is healthy and that Beth will eat. I'm getting pretty tired of making two dinners or having a battle and a hungry kid if I don't. HELP! I'd appreciate any advice.

I could use a pork chop and sweet and sour chicken recipe...and if your meatloaf is really good, I want that too! :) Thanks! You can email them if that's easier.

Diane, you know most of my recipes, since I don't have a very large repertoire, either. So, ask for any you'd like. Also, not concerning this recipe post - thanks for the face products advice. I used to used Dove and quite liked it, I should try it again. Does Aveeno just have one main face moisturizer? Where do you buy it? (I like a bargain and Aveeno tends to be expensive. I use Aveeno body lotion and like it - I get it from Costco.)
