Potato Slabs

  I found this Potato Slabs recipe a couple years ago. We have loved it ever since our first bites! If you like potato skins you will like this as well. What makes this a great recipe for kids is it requires much less effort! The first thing to do is crisp up the bacon. I like to cut the bacon into small pieces then it is easier to cook and you do not need to handle the bacon afterward. Your Little Chefs might need help with the slicing. When the bacon is done transfer it to a paper towel ...

Ginger Snaps

This easy recipe has always been a hit wherever we have taken these.  The spices are so strong which is why in my opinion makes them great! Over the last few months we have had the great pleasure of bringing these Ginger Snaps to a friend. Our friend has a rare form of cancer and has been amazingly strong while going through very aggressive treatments.  Apparently going through all these treatments has left our friend not being able to taste anything.  It took one bite for our friend to ...

Baked Potato Bake

Don't forget to enter the Flirty Aprons giveaway! Today is the last day to enter!  Come back tomorrow for Fantastic Thursday Linky Party #2!! Potatoes to me says Sunday dinner with the family.  Potatoes are easy to work with and cheap to buy. Kids can peel and cut potatoes fairly easily. A few might slip out of their hands while peeling, but that is what makes cooking fun...all the silly mistakes that occur! Those silly mistakes create memories! This time we used potatoes with a thin ...

No Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies are our all time favorite family favorite cookie! I remember growing up going on a vacation to Grandma's house and watching her make these cookies. When they were being placed on the wax paper Grandpa always seemed to time it right and come into the kitchen at that time. He took a knife and carefully hit each cookie HE was going to eat to flatten it. I still don't know why he did that, but apparently he preferred them flat. The first step is to melt the butter, sugar and milk ...

Cheddar Chicken and Potatoes

The prize is cute matching aprons for mom and child. Another one of our Family Favorites is Cheddar Chicken and Potatoes. We like it because it is a one dish meal and it is fairly simple and has common ingredients. We add a lot of cheese and bacon because that is what we love! Little Chef A is improving her knife skills. She finely diced the ...

Chocolate Pudding Cake

Have you ever been invited to a dinner party or had unexpected guests? I love this Chocolate Pudding Cake because the ingredients are in my pantry ALL the time. It is such an easy recipe to put together. The only hard part is waiting for an hour to cook.  If you are having fun with family or friends an hour goes by quickly! This recipe requires two bowls; one for the cake portion and one for the pudding portion. Starting off with the cake mix together flour, baking powder, vanilla, cocoa, ...

Fried Rice

  I'm Co-Hosting The Cure for the Common Monday. Link up here. Come back on Thursday for Five Little Chef's very own first linky party and a fabulous giveaway! Many times I plan the meat but not the sides for dinner. Fried Rice is one of our favorite go to sides. We always have the ingredients and the Little Chefs eat it without complaints. The recipe is better if you cook the rice earlier in the day so it has time to cool in the refrigerator. But often times I am not that ahead of ...

Product Review: Fun Bites

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fun Bites. All opinions are 100% mine. We had a great opportunity to try Fun Bites! My Little Chefs were SUPER excited when I showed them the Fun Bites website with a short video of 2 kids using the product. There are two different shapes, squares and hearts. (You can make the hearts into sail boats!) When our Fun Bites came in the mail they were anxious to try it right away. The Technique:  Fun Bites has two parts; the Cutter (which has ...

Beef Stroganoff

  Who doesn't like crock pot recipes? You throw everything in at breakfast, go throughout your day and when you are hungry for dinner it is waiting for you! When things get busy around my house I always think I should ONLY cook crock pot meals. No matter what happens at least part of the dinner is made. If we don't have time to make the sides at least there is something instead of a drive through window! Still, it seems easier to push through to completion when the main part is done. ...

Cinnamon Waffles

   Next up in our family favorites series is Cinnamon Waffles. We have tried a few waffle recipes. What I love about this one is the cinnamon. If you are ambitious you can separate the egg. Mix the yolk in with the mix then whip the whites and fold in at the end. The waffles are fluffy when you do this, but a lot of times I have hungry kids and omit the extra step. They turn out great either way! A couple years ago I needed to buy a new waffle iron. I love how crispy our waffles turn out with ...

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Today is the first day of June! This month we are starting a family favorites series! Most of the recipes we have made so far have been a first run at a recipe chosen by my Little Chefs. They have been LOVING cooking and trying new foods, but are wanting some of our tried and true recipes. We decided they could make our family favorites for the first time. Baked Parmesan Tilapia has been loved by my family for a long time now! I always have the ingredients on hand. It is easy to prepare. It ...
