Maybe it's just us (though we're willing to bet not), but this time of year, the meals that come out of our kitchens begin to look a little monotonous. Chicken cutlets, taco night, spaghetti, and repeat! We've all got a lot going on, and with kids and parents alike adjusting to the back-to-school routine, the last thing we want to be doing is scouring cookbooks for inspiration. With that in mind, we turned to our reliable and creative friends at Food Network.com for some help. The 10 recipes they came back to us with were all carefully selected with busy families and kids of varied ages in mind. From a chicken tamale pie to an unexpected way to introduce shellfish to your (nonallergic) kids, we think that you'll agree that these all deserve a spot in your rotation.
