    Everything in this slideshow

    • Mix-and-Match Baked Chicken Fingers and Dipping Sauces

      There's something kiddish about these crunchy chicken fingers, and that's why we love them! With six sauces and five options for breading, your friends will love to try them all.

    • Blushing Lemonade

      Think of your cocktail station as a grown up lemonade stand, and serve our pink vodka-lemonade cocktail. With just four ingredients, it’s easy to prep right before the party starts.

    • Macaroni and Cheese with Caramelized Onions

      The childhood dish we crave the most? Mac and cheese! Indulge the kid in you with a heaping scoop of our mozzarella-and-Gruyere macaroni and cheese recipe. Crumbled bacon and sweet caramelized onions give this party recipe a delicious edge over boxed varieties.

    • Tomato-Avocado Grilled Cheese

      Stacked with juicy tomatoes and creamy avocado, this is what grilled cheese looks like -- all grown up. Cut each sandwich into four squares or strips for appetizer-friendly portions.

    • Peanut Butter, Jelly, and Brownie Cookies

      Add to the party theme with a dessert inspired by a school lunch staple: PB&J. This adorable sandwich cookie features a gooey warm brownie and a dollop of strawberry jam smushed between two crispy peanut butter cookies.

    • Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

      Double-up on dessert with another childhood favorite. Fluffy red velvet cakes sandwich homemade marshmallow filling for classic whoopie pies that are a sweet-as-they-look party dessert.

    • Party Favor: Jacks and Fruit Leather

      A small bag of snacks and jacks makes the perfect party favor. Your guests can snack on homemade fruit leather while they finally master the classic childhood game.

    • Make It a Game Night

      Make the party a game night with your favorite childhood board games or card games. This easy party activity is inexpensive, and trust us, board games are even more fun when everyone can read the rules.

    • Grown-Up Tic-Tac-Toe

      Now that you're older, the competition at the tic-tac-toe board is serious. Set up a square piece of canvas (inside or outside depending on weather), and use tape to mark off nine boxes. Teams can toss beanbags in opposing colors from a set distance to determine the winner.
