blendtec

We were so excited when Chef Dad came home from work one day with a gift, and not just any gift.....the Blendtec!! One of our favorite things to make with our breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and for snacks, and even for desserts are BlendTec SMOOTHIES!!! We love them! And how easy is it to give my Little Chefs a full serving of fruits and vegetables all in one yummy drink! And now with the Blendtec it seemed to me and my Little Chefs that our options are now endless.  There is a Blendtec smoothie recipe book, but my Little Chefs prefer to make up their own as we go.  So we are excited to share our adventure with you as we create new and delicious recipes. With Summer here - this is a … [Read more...]

Welcome to Fantastic Thursday! Soccer season, back to school, Fall and Halloween decor and ideas are all over pinterest - the weather is cooling down (well, actually its still been quite hot in our neck of the woods!) - we LOVE this time of year.

Wonderful-Nuts-Snacks

I am sure all of you are familiar with Pom Wonderful Pomegranets - well, did you know that the Wonderful Brand also offers snacking nuts?!  We are always on the hunt for something new, something different, and even something a bit healthier for the Little Chefs - and myself for snacks. In the craziness and fun of summer - going to playdates, the beach or pool, swimming lessons, soccer, camping or traveling - we need snacks that are easy to grab on the go, and that will satisfy hungry bellies!! We found that the Wonderful Brand Amonds and Pistachios were a much better snack than other sugar filled - I am still hungry and want something else - snacks. And the small snack size bags were … [Read more...]

Last year,  as the summer came to a close, the Little Chefs wanted to end the summer with a BANG! So we had our first ever End of Summer Party. It was a great way to end the summer, a fun way to get all the Little Chefs friends together that they had not seen during the summer - and a good way to ease into the new school year!! When school started, the End of Summer Party was the hot topic! Now we are again here towards the end of another summer - which means.....another End of Summer Party!! And trust me, the Little Chefs have been asking about it for weeks now! As I have been planning this years party, I thought I would share with you my Printable Invite  and Wrapper for Water Bottles … [Read more...]

Grilled Margarita Pizza by fivelittlechefs.com Yummy grilled pizza perfecf for summer #margarita #pizza #for the grill

Funny thing - if I put a traditional pepperoni pizza and Grilled Margarita Pizza next to each other -  10 times out of 10 my Little Chefs would devour the Grilled Margarita Pizza! They love this pizza and I love that it is an easy recipe. What makes this pizza so delicious and fun for the Little Chefs - when they hear that we are having Grilled Pizza for dinner, they run outside to pick fresh Roma tomatoes and basil leaves from our garden! Oh so good. And... is it terrible that as I am writing this post, it made me hungry -  so I am eating left overs right now - as a late night snack!? We love to make this pizza because - Most the ingredients we use come straight from our garden It … [Read more...]

Steak Challenge: Marinade vs Dry Rub by fivelittlechefs.com - Which Steak came out on top #recipes #bbq #seasoning for #steak #marinade

Summer BBQ's are in full swing!!! And Sunday night dinners, for most families have the traditional post roast and potatoes, not at our house - We prefer STEAK! We have seasoned and prepared our steaks all different ways, some turned out better than others. We wanted to find out for ourselves which way we prefer our stakes. That is when the Steak Challenge: Marinade vs Dry Rub began! The Little Chefs started out with 2 identical steaks - well as close as identical as you can get, they both came from the same cow - and we know that because all our beef came from a quarter of a cow we bought. Little Chef E  and Little Chef K where in charge of the marinade steak and Little Chef B was in … [Read more...]
