The best cook is one that never gives up! here are a few that are from my family and some of my own.
first one is a simple but well loved grape salad(sounds healthy but it's really not but it is awesome even for the little ones
1cup sour cream-8oz
1/2 cup of sugar
Blend these together until smooth and creamy
5 cups of grapes
I usually just buy a big bunch and add them in until they are covered(may take less or more)
chill and serve......warning: this is not for anyone on a diet

You'll need a crock pot for this one, but its super easy and really yummy! 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste, 2 10 3/4 oz cans cream of chicken soup, 1 10 3/4 can cheddar cheese soup, 3 cups prepared egg noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes. Place chicken in crock pot, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, pour soups over top. Cover and cook on high setting for 4-6 hours, until chicken falls apart. Spoon over prepared rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes. My kiddos like it best with noodles.
