Just about a week to go till those school bells start ringin'. A few jitters are normal – but when it comes to making great lunches, there's no need to worry. Cooking magazine Taste of Home offers an A+ list of back-to-school recipes – from staples like Schoolhouse Chili and Lunch-Box Handwiches to some sweet snacks, like Granola Banana Sticks and a yummy granola-Cheerios-M&M's mix.

Join us for these fun and delicious two-hour presentations of exciting recipes, broken down step-by-step by culinary experts. Visit the Metro Parents Events page to learn about the latest – and, in the meantime, visit the Crumbs blog for more tasty recipes.

Every year, Metro Parent holds its CoverKids contest to choose the lucky kids who will be featured on the covers of Metro Parent's flagship magazine and ancillaries. In 2010, a whopping 600 kids showed up to Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills for their shot! These 30 kids turned our judges' heads, and were selected as our runners-up. Check 'em out – and stay tuned for details about next year's CoverKids search (always check our MP Events page for the latest!).
