Never Fail Fudge

I spent so long getting this recipe wrong, I actually sat around one day making batch after batch until I got it to come out right. What can I say? Making perfect fudge is an important skill! But no more! I have successfully mastered the Never Fail recipe at long last! So here's the recipe (which, actually, is pretty simple) with my notes on how to truly make it "Never Fail"!

Food Storage Enchiladas (And Some Thoughts on Kids and Chores)

One of the easy meals I plunked on our cooking challenge checklist was enchiladas. Husband likes red sauce and ground beef, but since I'm trying to teach kids to cook without too much dealing with stoves or raw meat, I went ahead and taught them a recipe for white sauce chicken ones instead! Obviously, it's not a very authentic Mexican dish, but these are the enchiladas I grew up on and I still love them. My family tends to call them "Food Storage Enchiladas" because almost every ingredient is canned and you can stock up on it for your 3 months (or year) of food storage!
