One of the final prizes in the Cookbook Contest will be awarded to the best family recipe, however I have seen relatively few contest entries that are explicitly designed to be good for larger groups, capable of producing multiple meals that can be eaten throughout the week, or amenable to assistance from little helpers.
This means that the few good family entries that ARE being submitted have a better shot at winning a final prize than, say, a dessert recipe. Don’t you want to make the most of this opportunity? Even if you don’t win a prize, you’ll be writing on a very searched-for subject!
Here are some search-friendly titles to consider using (search-friendliness is something judges look for): Easy Family Recipes Family Favorite Recipes Family Meal Ideas Easy Family Meals Quick Family Meals Family Meal Planning 101 Family Meal Recipes The Perfect Recipe for Kids Kid-Friendly Meals Kid-Friendly Dinners Kid-Friendly Crock Pot Recipes Healthy Recipes for Kids Healthy Breakfast for Kids: 5 Great Ideas 3 Healthy Kids’ Recipes Healthy Desserts for Kids Healthy Kid-Friendly Recipes Healthy Dinners for Kids Easy Kids Recipes Easy Recipes for Kids Easy Baking Recipes for Kids Easy Cake Recipes for Kids Lunch Ideas for Kids Dinner Recipe Ideas for Kids Breakfast Ideas for Kids Snack Ideas for Kids Kids Menu Ideas Healthy Snack Ideas for Kids Kid Party Food Healthy Food for Kids Healthy Food Recipes for Kids

I came up with a meal that can be easily changed to suit desired flavor, the mood I'm in, or the ingredients I have on hand. I like that it's quick, usually healthy, requires only a few ingredients and doesn't dirty a lot of dishes
Here's my latest family friendly meal: Stuffed Shells with Carrots, Zucchini, and Tofu. The hub describes how to make this everyday favorite, gives tips for including the kids in the preparation, and explores the pros and cons of hiding vegetables in kids' food. Enjoy!
Here are healthy breakfast ideas complete with pictures, video, and great links. Breakfast is an the most important meal of the day for kids yet many parents neglect to make their children a healthy breakfast. These ideas make breakfast quick, easy and FUN!
Here's my hub on my favorite applesauce cake recipe. I didn't think of this as a family recipe until I went to make it and my daughter and her friend INSISTED on helping and then took the preparation over entirely. http://jenn-anne.hubpages.com/hub/Easy- … e-for-Kids
Simone, I know what you want and I think I might do something creative with this, since (Ahem!) I'm an excellent cook! (I don't have one cell of shame in my body, do I?) Anyways, how long will this contest last? Because I would have to go to the grocery store, buy the week's menu ingredients and cook for a whole week, take pics, etc. Let me know pleeeeeeease.
The final deadline for submitting entries is June 28th at 12:00pm, so you definitely have time to put together this intriguing Hub! I can't wait to see it! It sounds awesomely efficient and convenient.
Simone, I was thinking about doing a weekly menu for a family of four. Is that too much?! I don't know if I'm on the right track. My idea was taking some of the best low-budget meals of Rachael Ray and adding a twist of my own to make them healthier and replacing some of the ingredients to seasonal ingredients. This is what I do at home anyways, so it comes as a no-brainer. Is this something worth doing? I've got a great menu in mind, lots of variety and pretty healthy, too. Let me know please. I might be overdoing it!
Here is my hub for a tasty chicken fajita casserole dish that the whole family will love. We usually have enough leftovers to make another yummy Mexican inspired meal later on in the week. Here is the link:
HELP! I'm trying to do a weekly family meal plan but the format only allows me to use one set of ingredients and cook-time per hub, so I can't plan it out as it's supposed to. I'd like to give readers a choice of doing the weekly or daily menu, as they please. There are some glitches when I try to edit the ingredients, too. It doesn't let me change the heading of that capsule. Let me know what can be done.
I thought I would enter my recipe for Black Bean Chili. I guarantee you that it's one of the most delicious Chili's that you'll ever get to make and enjoy. I think it's the perfect thing for a summer meal. If you like chili you'll love Black Bean Chili
Today everyone makes the Peanut Butter Pies in the refrigerator but there is a better way. Here I reveal for everyone how to make an Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Pie and once you taste it I think you'll agree that its the best peanut butter pie that you've ever tasted. I guarantee you it's well worth the time it takes to make and I've included photos and detailed instructions.
Here I tell you exactly how to shuck oysters quickly and easily plus you'll find a delightful recipe for Grilled Angels On Horseback which is oysters wrapped in bacon and grilled on the grill and I provide you with my much sought after Mustard Sauce recipe which is excellent on almost all seafood including Grilled Angels On Horseback.
Okay here I went with one of the suggested titles and I don't know how many people have tried Fruited Couscous Salad but not only is the fruit really healthy but so is the couscous. In case you don't know what couscous is just click the link below and check out what couscous is and check out the recipe for Fruited Couscous Salad. This salad is delicious and kids love it.
Hi Simone! Do I only have to click on the contest above my page to participate? Shall I publish my recipe first before I click on the Contest? I know, I feel like an idiot but I don´t want to make a mistake. Thanks for the help.
Simone, I'm warning you... this is the craziest and longest hub in the history of hubpages. It took me five days... but hey! You wanted a weekly menu for a large family! And I added a little music to it as well, you know... so it sounds like me. http://klarawieck.hubpages.com/hub/Easy … -Menu?done
Saved by k! Thank you! It's been such a long time since I've done a recipe, so I didn't know what I did wrong except change the title in the middle of writing this up. Many thanks! I'll stick to the original title from now on. Trying to figure this one out is brain overload for me. DOUBLE D-U-H for me!
Hi everyone! I'm floored by the awesome family recipes you've shared this week. Since there are still a couple days left of the Cookbook Contest, I've made the latest WTI challenge contest-friendly once again. This week's theme: budget-friendly meals. Stop by the forum thread and join in!
Simone--I was sure I had posted mine on here Saturday, but I don't see it now...does it have to be on here to be in the contest? I did it following the guidelines, using the recipe hub format, and answering the question...
I can't figure out why it isn't showing up on here?
Family recipe for delicious fried chicken patties. Similar to salmon patties, only much more tasty. Make oodles of small patties for large dinners, or larger ones as the meat entrée for smaller family meals.
How To Make Monte Cristo Sandwiches Tutorial. Kids Love These
These are wonderful sandwiches and I can tell you kids love them. I made them last weekend for 300 girl scouts and they loved them. As did the staff. I did not include the turkey on the ones for the girl scouts but they are delicious with the turkey also.
