“Simple to make, just dip and bake! Garlicky goodness in a breaded chicken dish. Yum!”
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Warm the garlic and olive oil to blend the flavors. In a separate dish, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip the chicken breasts in the olive oil and garlic mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.
These oven-baked meatballs are fast and easy to prepare and very kid-friendly. You can serve them with pasta and spaghetti sauce or just eat them with ketchup, as my children do. Feel free to substitute lean ground beef for the ground turkey. The turkey should have at least 7% fat.”
Original recipe makes 18 meatballs
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (20 ounce) package ground turkey
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with the olive oil, and place it in the oven while preheating.
In a medium bowl, mix together the ground turkey, egg, and bread crumbs using your hands. Using an ice cream scoop if possible, form the meat into golf ball sized meatballs. Place about 1 inch apart in the hot baking dish. Press down to flatten the bottom just slightly.
Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn them over, and continue baking for about 5 more minutes, or until somewhat crispy on the outside. Serve with pasta and sauce or however you’d like.

Here’s some crazy parenting advice from some parents being “caught up in the moment”. Some are funny, some are ridiculous and some are simply WRONG.
I once told my son (years ago, during one of his screaming tantrums) that he needed to take his all friggin’ emotions, ball them up and stuff them into a little box, then lock the lid and shove it waaaay down deep inside himself, where it wouldn’t bother the rest of us!
When my 2.5 year old is doing stupid stuff I always ask her “are you crazy? What are you doing” one day I accidentally substituted the word “crazy”, with the word “high”. Ever since that day, I randomly hear her ask the cat “you high Wednesday? What you doin?”
One of our things with our kids has always been “are you on drugs!?” They say it to each other all the time and if we are goofing around and we ask them “Hey can we ask you something?” they always respond with “No we are not on DRUGS”….
Um, well, I have something. Last month my 4 year old got a double ear infection and along with that came a mild case of pink eye. She took her antibiotics willingly but the eye drops were a whole other story.
These drops had to be given 4 times a day for 7 days so it was important to get her on board. The first night I tried explaining, arguing, time outs, offering rewards, taking away privileges, etc. Only my husband was able to convince her saying it made him sad to see her in time out. She went for it and afterward we praised her for being a big girl. I thought it would be a breeze after that but I was wrong.
The next morning started the fight all over again. She yelled, “I’ll just stay in time out!” No amount of pleading or threatening from me or her dad could convince her. Finally at my wits end, I googled “pink eye untreated” and pulled up the images on my phone, marched up to her and showed her the thumbnails saying, “This is what happens if you don’t take your drops!” It worked like a charm. The following days she let me administer her eye drops and even reminded me that it was time to take them. Oh, and she told me she had a nightmare that the red eyes were looking at her.
TL;DR: I’m a monster.
Okay not with my kid but I was the oldest in my family so I pretty much was on board with the whole telling the younger ones what do to. One day my folks went out for groceries and I’m in charge and my sister is picking a scab. I know we all do it but I told her to stop. She kept doing it. I told her again to cut it out she’s going to make it worse. She was confused, I explained she could get an infection from picking her scab. Too big words she was still confused, okay so an infection is when you arm fills up with puss, turns green, and they have to cut your arm off to save your life, so keep your owies clean and don’t pick your scab.
I swear it was the only time I thoroughly traumatized one of my siblings because by the time my folks came home she was crying that I said her arm was going to turn green and her arm was going to fall off. I swear I was just trying to keep her from picking her scabs.
Edit: Okay the trauma thing was a lie there was also a rubber mask that we used a couple times.
We have an extremely grumpy 9 year old cat with all his his claws, and he has to be friendly on his own terms. For the first two years of our son’s life, they basically just avoided each other. I swear, I have the only toddler who won’t touch animals, even when you say is ok.
Lately they’ve been a little more friendly toward each other, so we’ve been teaching out son to tell when the kitty is happy and when he’s angry. And I tell him it’s his own fault of he gets swiped at if he’s still messing with the cat when he gets angry.
When my son, 6, is doing something semi-dangerous, like standing on the spinning barstools in the kitchen, I tell him I will laugh at him when he falls. He immediately gets down and starts telling me how it’s not okay to laugh at him. I win.
My 5 year old yells from his room, very late at night – “Daddy, I can’t sleep because I’m scared of monsters.”
I answer – “There’s no such thing as monsters…. now go to sleep before the monsters eat you.”
In my defence, I said that second part way softer and I’m mostly sure no one other then my wife heard it.
This is going to sound bad. I tripped over my cat and fell on my kid. My kid who had an issue with laying on cats. So when I fell on him I explained it was like hurting the cats. I never apologized. To this day I feel bad…. But it worked.
My daughter went through a phase where she wouldn’t let me buckle her in her car seat. I had her convinced that if she wasn’t buckled in, the police would arrest her and take her jail. I’ve never had a problem with her not wearing her seat belt since.
