I have some tricks up my sleeve. Apple pies, slow cooker meals, and cookies. The family seems to love all the food, but my daughter is learning to bake and she loves the cookies the most.  

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes only because it really is easy to follow and the kids love the cookies. It’s a super simple Homemade Sugar Cookie Recipe.
