Great Recipes for Picky Eaters

Between my husband and my son, finding recipes that will even be considered in my house is tough. These simple recipes have only a few ingredients which makes them great 'base recipes' that you can add to.

Taste is everything, we don't eat it if it doesn't taste great.

Cookbook creator says: This is an unusual recipe, and I didn't actually think we would care for it when I made it, but they are pretty good. Too much cilantro ruins it I think.

Cookbook creator says: My husband and I made this recipe ourselves, because we were tired of making breakfast every morning before work.

These are great to make all week and reheat.

We eat 2 egg cups and a serving of cottage cheese for breakfast.
