Disclosure: I was paid to produce this post but the opinions in it are my own. Do you ever shop at the grocery store thinking about what to make for breakfast for your house guests?  Frozen and refrigerated foods are great because a lot of the hard work is done. When you are up late having fun the last thing you want to do is get up super early to make something delicious. Why not get a little help from the frozen and refrigerated sections while you sleep in just a little bit longer. One thing I especially love about frozen foods is that I have the option to use an entire bag or I can use half then close it back up and use the remaining half at a later date. I am not wasting any food … [Read more...]

Breakfast Hash

Are you ever looking for a breakfast or brunch recipe to impress? Since next Sunday is Grandparents Day we are sharing a "Brunch with Grandparents" menu this week! While searching through a Taste of Home book I found this breakfast hash recipe that I knew would be amazing and was not let down. This is a great recipe for Little Chefs because after the prep work it is made in one skillet which means only one thing to focus on. There is some waiting time to let the hash browns lightly brown, but do not rush this step or you will have limp potatoes. Lightly browned means lightly crunchy which is an important texture this dish needs. Put the potatoes in the refrigerator the night before to … [Read more...]

Breakfast Pizza from fivelittlechefs.com #recipe

With school out and Summer is here - We have more time in the mornings to make lots of fun things for breakfast. We LOVE breakfast, and we needed some more ideas to mix things up from the typical pancakes, waffles, and french toast. I asked what the Little Chefs wanted for breakfast, on the first day out of school - and their response - pizza. The Little Chefs were so surprised when I agreed that pizza would be a great idea.....that is Breakfast Pizza. To make our Breakfast Pizza, we just used up items we had in the house, well actually the cabin. When we made this recipe we were up in the mountains at Grandma and Grandpa's cabin, one of our favorite places to go - spending some much … [Read more...]

CaramelCinnamonRolls

I had posted the review and GIVEAWAY (enter here, it ends TONIGHT!!) for the Chinet Bakeware Set a couple of weeks ago - and made my ever-so-famous (well, at least with my friends and family!) Caramel Cinnamon Rolls. I had quite a few of you requesting the recipe, and you would like to try them out. Your wish is my command!!! We LOVE cinnamon rolls around our house. Yes, they are a bit time-consuming, but ohhh, so worth every minute! The nice thing about this recipe is that it makes two 9 X 13 pans of rolls. So, before the rolls rise, we simply freeze one pan of them and the next time we want Caramel Cinnamon Rolls, we just pull them out of my freezer - thaw, raise and cook!! My Little … [Read more...]

Cinnamon Syrup

Happy International Waffle Day! We decided to share with you our Cinnamon Syrup that you can put over your favorite waffle recipe! If you don't have a favorite waffle recipe I highly suggest you try Almost Famous Pecan Waffles they are filling and wonderful! It seems almost once a week we have breakfast for dinner. Maybe it is because I am becoming more and more exhausted at dinner time or most likely because we just like breakfast foods. Not only are they quick to make, we have the ingredients on hand all the time and it is a low cost meal. One way to change things up is to vary the fillings or the toppings. We have loved putting cinnamon in our Cinnamon Waffles and thought we'd put … [Read more...]

easter bunny pancake

  Did your mom always tell you to not play with your food?! Well, for this Easter Breakfast, we wanted to get the kids involved. What better way to have our Easter breakfast than with pancakes. And to make it even better,  let the Little Chefs make them into Easter Bunnies! My Little Chefs LOVE pancakes. We eat pancakes not just for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner as well. This is why I needed to make a homemade pancake recipe that we loved. For this recipe I like to add and change some ingredients to give our pancakes a new little twist. Because believe me, when you eat pancakes as much as we do, a little bit of change is a good thing! Some mornings we will add a banana, or add a … [Read more...]

Homemade Granola Bars Recipe

Homemade Granola Bars

At our house, the "go to" snack has always been the granola bar.  Recently, as the price of a box of granola bars has sky rocketed. And also realizing the nutritional value of most granola bars are typically the same as a candy bar - I had to bust out the big guns and create a Homemade Granola Bars Recipe. What we LOVE about this simple homemade granola bar recipe, is that the options are endless.  You can pick and choose your own ingredients to your own liking.  From peanut butter and chocolate chips to any dried fruit and any combination of your favorite nuts, pretzels, coconut or sunflower seeds .  And to make it a healthy bar, we will sometimes add wheat germ or ground flax-seed. One … [Read more...]

Cinnamon Waffles

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 our Cuisinart WMR-CA Round Classic Waffle Maker. The mix is very easy to make. Little Chef C measured out and combined the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. After … [Read more...]

German Pancake and Buttermilk Syrup

Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!

For one night when Little Chef Dad is away for work we usually have breakfast for dinner. This evening Little Chef A wanted to make German Pancakes.  She remembers loving them after making them for the first time with Grandma. Don't you love how memories are tied together with food! Little Chef A got out the eggs to crack. It is so funny to me that she says, "Oopsy" each time she cracks it open with her thumbs as if she made a mistake! Followed by the much anticipated, "Icky, my hands are getting dirty! I can't wash my hands until throw away the shells." The next thing she needed to do was measure out the flour and the milk. She decided to use the same measuring cup for both. I asked her … [Read more...]

Almost Famous Pecan Waffles

Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!

Little Chef D was reading the Food Network magazine and wanted to make Almost Famous Pecan Waffles.   The pecans were placed on a cookie sheet and baked until toasted. After they were toasted, Little Chef D used the hand chopper and easily chopped them into smaller pieces. While the pecans were toasting she measured the ingredients.   The butter and shortening were added to a bowl then put in the microwave to melt. Afterward, the bowl was set on the counter to cool. The dry ingredients were combined and whisked. Little Chef D cracked the egg, then yelled to her sisters, "I did an egg all by myself!" She was skipping and dancing and yelling so proud of … [Read more...]
