    Let's face it; what makes us crave pizza isn’t the toppings or the crust. It's that delicious interplay between warm, tangy sauce and creamy, melted cheese. That's what you get in this dip; plus, you can use an oven bag to eliminate cleanup hassles, which is great when you just absolutely have to have pizza NOW but don’t want to deal with the mess of making it yourself.

    You can serve this with the parmesan breadsticks recipe included below, but if you're avoiding carbs or entertaining people who avoid gluten, pepper strips or zucchini slices would make yummy dippers as well. This would be a great hot dip to bring to a party or office potluck as well, since you can bring everything already mixed in the bag, carried in the dish you'll use to serve. Just heat it up when you get there and you have a no-hassle appetizer.

    Football season is upon us, which means that our family is again on the hunt for the perfect wing recipe. We've tried them fried, seasoned, sweet and sour. You name it; we gave it a try in our test kitchen (which means I'm cooking and the kids are eating).

    But this recipe for peanut sesame chicken wings gave us something new -- a Thai-inspired flavor with a bit of a kick. They were a hit! Thank goodness, because our team lost last weekend. At least we had the wings. Here's how you make them.

    "I'm hungry!" This is the constant rallying cry amongst my boys right around 4 p.m. It's a tough time because they should be hungry for a snack, yet dinner is so close, I don't want them to fill up. I also want to give them something wholesome and healthy and preferably not store bought.

    Sound like too much to ask? Nope! Just check out this easy to follow recipe for homemade animal graham crackers. I've made them a bunch of times, serving them up with a glass of milk and apple slices. I've been known to sneak a few myself with a morning cup of coffee. Shh ... don't tell! Here's how you make them:

    So, I guess you could say that our family is crazy about potato chips. We just love them. And that's a problem because potato chips are anything but healthy. Especially when you read the calorie content on the back of the bag! I've long been searching for an alternative and I just might have found them in this recipe for baked sweet potato chips.

    You can eat them plain, toss on a bit of seasoning, or create a creamy dip with low fat Greek yogurt and chives. Yummy right? Serve them as a snack or alongside their favorite sandwiches. They also go great packed up and sent in a lunch bag for school. Here's how you make them:

    Here's a problem we never talk about: how to dampen your sex drive. When was the last time you saw the headline "10 Ways to Stomp Out Your Libido & Have the Non-Existent Sex Life You Crave"? Never, that's when. But back in the 19th century, that was actually a thing. And that's why graham crackers were invented.

    Yes, those delicious cinnamon-sugar coated crackers we use to make decadent s'mores had a much more dismal beginning. For one thing, they weren't made with cinnamon and sugar. They were invented by evangelical minister Sylvester Graham to curb salacious desires -- as a way of liberating people, of course.

    I think we can all agree on this one thing about ice cream: It melts when it's warm outside. Heck, it melts in a slightly chilly room. So when Christie Watson discovered her son's ice cream sandwich hadn't melted (much) after sitting in 80-degree weather for 12 hours, she was naturally suspicious. After checking the box of Walmart Great Value bars to verify that they are made with real ice cream, she tried a little experiment. She left another bar out overnight. Sure enough, that one didn't melt, either. "I thought to myself: What am I feeding to my children?" Watson said.

    What's the deal with these ice cream bars?

    Cinco de Mayo is upon us, how better to celebrate than by whipping up a plate of delicious nachos?! It's easy to write off cooking up this killer app at home. All the ingredients make it seem like it might be more than a little time-consuming. Plus, the last thing we want to do with spring finally upon us is turn on the oven, right?

    Thankfully, these delicious 5-minute nachos don't even involve your oven. Added bonus? The whole 'it only takes 5 minutes' part. In terms of prep, you're looking at virtually nothing. This recipe mainly includes things you've probably already got hanging around the house. That said, if you want to spice things up and add more (or less), that's up to you. The only thing cooler than how fast and easy these nachos are is how flexible the recipe is. Read on and then go get your yum on!

    You can have your corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day. For me the holiday means one thing: What foods can I dye green? I'm not talking already-green foods like broccoli and kale -- those are our everyday foods! (Wink!) I mean, whipping out ye lucky old green food coloring to give everything a bit o' the emerald.

    Not every food lends itself well to green food coloring. So here's a few foods you can get away with tinting without (hopefully) ruining your kids' appetites. Or your own.
