Breakfast Wraps

I can’t believe that school starts in a week! It’s time to get organized with before school breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Since my daughter dances everyday after school, my oldest son plays golf, and my youngest son plays football, I have to get my kids day started off on the right foot. They need great fuel from their morning breakfast, and this recipe for Breakfast Wraps is wonderful for families on the go during the week or the weekend. These Breakfast Wraps are loaded with protein, vegetables and carbohydrates and incorporate frozen foods which make my life easier. I love using frozen food, even for breakfast, because frozen fruits and vegetables are typically less expensive and more convenient than their fresh counterparts. They can really trim down on the prep time in my cooking. I know most of my friends tend to forget that frozen foods start out the same as their fresh counterparts, coming from the earth and sea. They are picked at the peak of ripeness and flash frozen, sometimes right on the field, to lock in all the beneficial nutrients and keep them in their perfect, just-picked state. Also, frozen foods are real food. The ingredients are picked in the field and prepared by chefs and the recipes are tested in a kitchen. For more breakfast options, check out the freezer aisle range from low-fat and organic to ultra-indulgent and everything in between. Feel free to add or subtract ingredients from this recipe. My 3 kids love avocado, and edamame beans. You can add your children’s favorites, and I’ll bet you’ll having one yourself. You’ll find more great recipes such as this one on Easy Home Meals.

Kids Favorite Panini Sandwich

Okay. I have found my newest favorite kitchen appliance. Frigidaire’s 5-in-1 Grill and Griddle has recently launched at Target just in time for Father’s Day, wedding gifts or college graduate gifts. My kids and I are addicted to using it this summer making sandwiches such as this Kids Favorite Panini Sandwich and so many more. They can even use this on their own with minimal supervision (of course, my youngest is 12).

This panini maker is so fabulous! With two extra-large, reversible cooking plates and independent, dual-temperature controls, you can cook panini’s for two or burgers for six on this easy-to-use appliance. An innovative open-flat design is perfect for cooking pancakes and bacon simultaneously – or fold it to cook everything from slim sandwiches to plump burgers. Removable dishwasher-safe plates and a sleek stainless steel look make the Frigidaire Professional 5-in-1 Grill and Griddle. It rocks!
