One of the best kid friendly recipe that most adults love too is definitely mac and cheese. It’s one of my comfort food, the creamier and cheesier it is the better! Growing up, I have already tried different versions of this recipe but today I’m sharing with you one of family’s recent favorites, it’s a Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese. You know how life is easier with crock pot, so this recipe is perfect for busy moms and a perfect recipe kids can make any time. I promise you this recipe makes our traditional mac and cheese taste so much better.
If you pre slice the strawberries then Strawberry Polka Dot cow parfait could be a good breakfast, snack or dessert.
If you pre chop the ingredients to Southern caviar it is a measure, mix, then dip with chips snack!
If you pre cook the noodles then this crock pot Macaroni and cheese recipe becomes a quick measure, mix, dump side dish. We do not recommend recipes that require heating in the beginning of this series but the heat of a crock pot does not become an issue due to the fact that the crock pot is not turned on till all of the recipe requirements are completed. The child should be in no danger of coming in contact with the heat.
Almost every crock pot recipe could be a cooking with kids level one recipe if you pre prep the ingredients so your child simply measures, mixes and dumps. Here are a few ideas:
This is a very easy Mexican Minestrone soup.
Another great soup (with a safety tip about cooking the ground beef)- Stuffed Bell Pepper soup
Your child helper could do the first three steps of this Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken.
Check the cooking for a month or freezer cooking recipes. Those recipes require prep of ingredients prior to freezing so the meal recipe is minimal.
Note: Many food processors and other chopping devices have a safety precaution that keeps it from turning on despite being plugged in , unless all pieces are in place. Therefore these tools are quite safe for chldren once the blade and other parts are in place. However, if you use these with your children you need be sure the child does not touch the blade as they are removing the chopped items.
I’m always looking for fast, easy kid crock pot recipes – and this Taco Soup is exactly that! You’ll be able to throw it together in just minutes, probably with ingredients you already have laying around the house. Let it cook all day and it’ll be ready for your family to enjoy by dinner time.
And that’s it! Doesn’t get much simpler than that. It’s not super spicy, but if your kids have sensitive taste buds, you can reduce or omit the green chile peppers. Garnish it with tortilla chips, sour cream, or cheddar cheese. And it makes great leftovers, too!

I am a simple cook and have never been one for curry or cumin in my food. A few months back I made a promise to myself to try some new things. When a friend told me about a curry chicken she made, I knew I had to try it. I added a few things of my own and loved the way it came out. I was pleasantly surprised when my daughter requested leftovers for lunch the next day.
