The author of the New York Times bestselling America’s Most Wanted Recipes series reveals the secrets to winning over your kids’ tummies with their favorite restaurant meals made in the comfort of your own kitchen!
More than a million home chefs have devoured Ron Douglas’s ingenious copycat recipes. From desserts to low-calorie and grilled meals, he’s proven how simple and cost-effective it is to prepare mouthwatering restaurant dishes at home. In America’s Most Wanted Recipes Kids’ Menu, he shares the ingredients to more than 100 of the most frequently ordered dishes from the country’s most popular children’s menus: Buca di Beppo’s Cheese Manicotti, PF Chang’s Crispy Honey Chicken, Applebee’s Kids’ Mini Hamburger, Chili’s Cinnamon Apples, Così’s Mississippi Mud Pie, Friendly’s Chicken Quesadillas, Panera Bread’s Mac and Cheese, Uno Chicago Grill’s Safari Nuggets, and much, much more.
Face it, we all know the best way to make sure our kids are eating right is to prepare their food at home. Restaurant meals are traditionally high in calories, sodium, and fat. The dishes featured in Kids’ Menu were selected and designed to be served as occasional treats and as a fun way to get the family together in the kitchen, comparing the copycat version against the original. By making these dishes at home, parents will have the opportunity to make them healthier by substituting different ingredients and cooking methods. That’s what Kids’ Menu provides.
Also included is a section on children’s nutrition and advice on how to balance the foods they love with ingredients that are good for them.
Be the ultimate “sneaky chef.” Prepare the meals your family loves, knowing you’re giving them the nutrition they need. America’s Most Wanted Recipes Kids’ Menu will help you save money (no more drive-thru!) and calories, while you indulge in good food and quality time with the people you love around the dinner table.

As leaders or parents (or both), navigating difficult conversations is part of our job description. How do we keep calm and achieve a productive outcome, all while keeping our relationships intact?
The secret is curiosity. It’s the innovation-driving, emotion-calming skill that comes so naturally to us as kids, but gets buried so easily beneath our busy, multitasking lifestyles. The good news is that we just have to relearn what we already know!
In "The Power of Curiosity", mother-daughter executive coaching team Kathy Taberner and Kirsten Taberner Siggins introduce the Curiosity Skills and a full, step-by-step process to use anytime, even in potentially challenging conversations arise. In "The Power of Curiosity", you’ll learn:
* How to be fully present in every conversation, even when distractions abound
* The five listening choices you always have available to you, whether at home, work, or school
* Specific calming strategies to access when negative emotions run high
* A step-by-step process to transform potential conflict into relationship-building opportunities
Imagine approaching every conversation, even challenging conversations with a sense of calm and even excitement, confident you’ll achieve a win-win result and a stronger relationship than before. That’s the power of curiosity. [close]
