Don't forget that kid-friendly food can still be delectable for adults. Sometimes, all a meal needs is a little touch of creativity to go from mundane to mouthwatering.
For tonight's supper, try this finger food, which is fun not only for the whole family to make but to devour as well. Forgo a predictable crust of Italian breadcrumbs or panko in favor of one made from an American pantry pastime, Cheez-Its.
