What to cook in Your Timeshare Kitchen

More and more families are discovering the wonderful world of timeshare rental vacations. Affordable, spacious, complete with many resort amenities, timeshare rentals are the perfect way to have a great vacation that is easy on the budget, easy on the parents, and fun for everyone.

As all of you timeshare rental families have learned, one of the very best features of a timeshare rental is its fully-equipped kitchen. A money-saver, and so convenient, your own kitchen allows you to keep those constantly hungry kids fed without breaking the bank. For mom to be able to use the kitchen and still enjoy being on vacation, the meals and snacks need to be quick, easy, filling, and take basic ingredients. Here are some snack ideas that will save you money, save you time, and will be a hit with the kids.

Frozen Yogurt Pops
Supplies: small paper cups; wooden popsicle sticks (available in craft stores); plastic wrap
Ingredients: 1 8-oz. container of a favorite flavor of yogurt

  1. Pour yogurt into paper cups. Fill them almost to the top.
  2. Stretch a small piece of plastic wrap across the top of each cup.
  3. Using the popsicle stick, poke a hole in the plastic wrap. Stand the stick straight up in the center of the cup.
  4. Put the cups in the freezer until the yogurt is frozen solid.
  5. Remove the plastic wrap, peel away the paper cup.

Fun Fruit Kabobs
Supplies: wooden skewer sticks; large plate
  • apples
  • bananas
  • red seedless grapes
  • green seedless grapes
  • pineapple chunks
  • nonfat yogurt
  • dried coconut, shredded
  1. Prepare the fruit by cutting the apples into small squares, cutting the bananas and into chunks, and cutting the pineapple into chunks, if it's fresh. Put the fruit onto a large plate.
  2. Spread coconut onto another large plate.
  3. Slide pieces of fruit onto the skewer and let the kids design their own kabob by putting as much or as little of whatever fruit they like. Do this until the stick is almost covered from end to end.
  4. Hold the kabob at the ends and roll it in the yogurt, so the fruit gets covered. Then roll it in the coconut.
  5. Repeat these steps with another skewer.

Simple Snack Mix
  • whole grain cereal (squares or Os work best)
  • dried fruit of your choice (raisins, dried cranberries, etc.)
  • nuts, such as walnut pieces, slivered almonds, peanuts or pistachios
  • small, whole-grain snack crackers or pretzels
Combine in large bowl.

Note: Use single-serving bags or containers to take this snack on the go.
