This Easy Arancini Recipe has been sponsored by Minute Rice. If you love rice balls, but not all the work involved in making them, this recipe is for you!

Having grown up in an Italian family, rice balls or arancini were a typical dinner dish. Rice balls are breaded, fried balls of rice and cheese. Some people add different ingredients to arancini, for instance, my aunt added peas which I was not a fan of. My mom knew I didn't like peas so she always made them extra cheesy for me and left out the peas. These days, I don't make rice balls too much because of the work involved in making the rice and getting it to the correct consistency. But I recently discovered a cool shortcut that makes tasty arancini in a fraction of the time. My secret for an easy arancini recipe? Minute® Rice. That's right, the product that gives you great-tasting, fluffy white rice in only 5 minutes can save you a ton of time in the kitchen. It's easy to prepare and is the foundation to a any wholesome meal. I am sharing my mom's recipe for rice balls with a a time saving shortcut that I bet she wishes she had!

20 Cookies Kids Can Make - Food Fun Friday

Pin It
I need to bake three dozen cookies this weekend for a church event. Normally that would be a daunting task for me, but luckily, I have some helpers in the kitchen who LOVE to bake cookies (and eat them!). I have been baking with my kids since they were toddlers. If you are new to baking with kids, cookies are a great way to start. They often bake up quickly, which is great when you are a kid who lacks patience. Plus, they are more exciting for kids to make than a muffin. Your child can help with making cookies when they are as young as two. Each of the 20 Cookies Kids Can Make below have been made by kids. They are not just cookie recipes kids will enjoy. Kids have made them and yours can too. When you have finished your batch of cookies check out our other family friendly recipes.
