If you follow me on Facebook then you might have read this update last week.
I tried a new recipe for dinner last night for my cooking through my collection series. It was one of those really quick and easy type ones and it contained hot dogs. I was not that impressed with the recipe. It was ok, but I was not sure it was worth sharing. My 10 year old son though had 4 helpings of it. I think this means I need to share the recipe on Monday. Any meal that gets a 10 yo boy to eat 4 helpings needs shared.
So, today I am sharing a quick and easy, very kid friendly type meal. Because really any meal that a ten year old boy eats four helpings of must be pretty good.
This Chili Corn Dog Pie comes from the The Dinner Doctor. The Dinner Doctor Cookbook is by the same author that did the The Cake Mix Doctor Cookbooks. I love the Cake Mix Doctor Cookbooks. The recipes are an easy way to turn a cake mix into something special.
I am not sure when I got the The Dinner Doctor cookbook, but I have had it for awhile. It is a great cookbook for quick and easy recipes, but if you are looking for whole foods, no processed foods, etc., then this is not the cookbook for you.
Don’t get me wrong, I have made many of the recipes in this cookbook, but most of them are not the healthiest. Kid friendly yes, healthy, not really.
What I do love this cookbook for is recipes like today’s recipe. They are very quick and easy and kids love them. Not only that, many of the recipes are great for cooking with kids.
This Chili Corn Dog Pie is a meal that not only will kids love, they will enjoy cooking it as well. And in my opinion recipes like that are worth keeping.
If you have the The Dinner Doctor I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
