Egg in the Hole Grilled Cheese Sandwich
When school was first out and the Little Chefs are very excited for the "best summer ever." At our first summer lunch at home Little Chef A said, "Can we NOT have peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at all this summer?" In the April 2012 Food Network Magazine there was a tear out with 50 different grilled cheese recipes. We read through them all and chose a few we thought sounded good. The first one we wanted to try was Egg in a Hole.
We found this recipe to be quick. It is very ...
Preserving the Harvest: Apricot Jam
Fantastic Thursday is still up. Link up what you have been up to and see what others have been doing.
Remember the apricots we got from my parents tree? We dehydrated some, made apricot crisp with some and we even froze some apricots to make apricot crisp later. We STILL had more so Little Chef A was amazingly helpful and made apricot jam with me. She stayed with me from beginning to end! She was VERY proud of herself for this accomplishment!
She is the one who takes a PB&J; sandwich to ...

Preserving the Harvest: Dehydrating Apricots
My parents have an apricot tree that was ready for harvesting. On Sunday we stopped by and picked some apricots for preserving. The Little Chefs were eager to pick because they were able to climb the tree! Later they were eager to help because that meant they were able to sneak A LOT of tastes!
I showed them how to safely half the apricot, after it was washed, to take the pit out.
The next step was to cut each half into thirds. It seems each time I dehydrate I cut the fruit in a ...
Crazy Cajun Butter Grilled Corn on the Cob
We LOVE corn on the cob. When we are grilling it is super easy to throw a few ears of corn on for a side dish. This time we decided to do something a little different. We have seen on cooking shows different flavored butters you can put on the corn before grilling. We found a recipe for Crazy Cajun Butter Grilled Corn on the Cob and decided to give it a try. All the ingredients were familiar to us and already in our pantry. That is always a major factor for choosing a recipe!
Spicy Moroccan Glazed Chicken
I knew from the recipe selection this was going to be either a hit or a miss. The spices were in our pantry as my sister can attest. She was just here helping me and wondered about some of the unusual spices we had including some for this recipe...that is unusual to her!
Little Chef C was ready to begin with her apron on anxious to do her job. She first measured out the lime juice then the yogurt. It's a good thing we had the plain yogurt from the Creamy Cucumbers to use up as we are not fans ...
When I grill I either like to have sides that can be put on the grill at the same time, or are prepared earlier in the day. This recipe is a Creamy Cucumber Salad that NEEDS to be made at least 4 hours earlier so it can marinade. It is so simple to make Little Chef D was a little bored making it herself!
The first step is to mince the onion and slice cucumber. Half your cucumber lengthwise and then cut it thinly across. Little Chef D did not want to do this task today so I helped her out. She ...

My Little Chefs have been desperately wanting to make their own recipes! We came up with the idea to make Dessert Quesadillas. Somehow it turned into we are doing Chopped at our home and the secret ingredient is tortillas. They wanted me to get out ingredients and then call them into the kitchen to amaze them with their choices. Little Chef C even wanted me to put them under a box!
They were each overly excited to make their own and taste everyone's recipes. We decided to grill the ...

Over the past couple of years when we ate at our friends house in the summer time they always grilled asparagus. Last summer we tried it on the grill ourselves and liked it. This time the Little Chefs could help in the preparation but not in the grilling. We knew we would like Garlic-Balsamic Asparagus because we LOVE balsamic vinegar!
The first step is to snap the ends off the asparagus. This is easy for Little Chefs to do. If you bend the last few inches it will naturally snap. The ...
Rhapsody for Red Meat
We are starting a grilling series the entire month of July. Summer is a great time to grill. I thought my Little Chefs could learn a few skills in preparing the foods for the grill without actually using the grill. They are not tall enough to safely grill. However at most grilling parties I have been to one person prepares the food and another actually does the grilling. My Little Chefs can learn the first part now and the second part in a few years.
Rhapsody for Red Meat is a marinade ...
