    I had fabulous citrus pork carnitas today in the Nestle Dining Center. Would love to have a recipe like that to make for my husband’s family!

    Would love some more ideas for “5 minute dinners for picky eaters” aside from frozen mac n cheese or microwaved chicken nuggets. Key is, they REALLY have to take only 5 minutes and they REALLY have to be for picky eaters (arranging asparagus into a happy face doesn’t work)

      I’m working on new recipes with 5 ingredients or less for my triplets. One uses frozen brown rice (ready in 3 mins), then I combine with Apple Juicy Juice and just a couple other ingredients to make a quick side dish. Our Buitoni pastas can be cooked quickly, but since it takes time to boil water, these take more like 15 minutes.

      Quinoa is great for your child to try! Quinoa cooks in 15 mins and can be added to taco meat to make more nutritious tacos. I add the red cooked quinoa to beef and ivory quinoa to turkey. Instant whole wheat couscous cooks in 5 mins. Can add some pre-cooked chopped chicken breast and microwaved veggies to round out the meal.

      I like to take advantage of shortcuts like pre-cooked chicken, bagged veggies/salads, etc. Something I also do is ALWAYS have pre-cooked pasta on hand!

      When my kids are crazy hungry and dinner isn’t on the table, they have a yogurt a carrot or just something nutritious to hold them over. My dinners are never complicated, but they do take 20-30 mins total, even if I take advantage of shortcuts.

      I hope this helps!

    I cannot find the Swirled Holiday Premier White Colored Morsels any longer. Have they been discontinued? I still have your recipe which calls for them. Thanks.

      Hi Willadene! This year we are featuring Nestle Toll House dark chocolate & mint morsels for the holidays. Here is the link for more info: http://bit.ly/hYZmjt I miss the holiday colored morsels too! We do have a new limited edition product that is meant for decorating, but they may still work for your purpose. The product is called Red & Green Toppers (they are mini morsels in holiday colors). Here is the link for more info: http://bit.ly/fkGm9d I hope this info is helpful!

    Hello, Need some information..
    I was going through my mom’s recipes and found an original (vol.1) “From the Nestle’ Test Kitchen 12 Special Semi-Sweet Recipes” booklet.

    Can you let me know something about this and what this would possibly be worth? It’s in pretty good condition. Looks like it may be from the 1950’s.

    Thank you
    Edyie Hollender

      Hi Edyie,
      I wish I could be of more help – I do know there are some great tried and true recipes in that recipe book! We no longer have a resident archivist and therefore have no way to discern the value and/or history of the recipe book in question. We suggest you consult a local library on collectibles or one of the many Internet auction-type sites.
