Cooking with the Moms
Are you a do it yourselfer? Well, whether you are or not, you're going to love the DIY recipe mixes we have in store for everyone on our show this week. From DIY Taco Seasoning Mix to DIY chocolate DIY creamed soup mix, we'll tell you how to create your own mixes...while cutting back on packing and artificial ingredients often found in things like taco seasoning mix. We can't take credit for the DIY recipes, but we can give credit to fellow dietitian Melanie Zook with Fresh Start Nutrition. Tune in for the recipes as well as a new recipe from our kitchen for Beef and Bean Taco Bundles.

As a mom of two teenage boys, Liz spends a lot of time getting meals and snacks on the table. Josh turns 18 next week, and he has a fuel tank (AKA stomach) that's impossible to top off. Simon, 14, has never had as big an appetite, but lately, he seems to be catching up to his big brother. Soccer season has kicked off for both boys, and Simon definitely has the golf bug; after school, he's gotten in the habit of hitting (fake) golf balls around the back yard! Given Liz's mealtime and snack challenge and her boys' need for lots of calories, we share snacking tips for teens on this week’s show along with two new recipes: Apple Crisp Snack Parfaits and Roasted Carrot Hummus.
