Avocado butter recipe is easy to whip up. Add to the top of a grilled piece of meat, fish, toast or corn on the cob to jazz it up. Impress your guests with minimal work.

In the summer we grill a lot of chicken, steak and fish. This Avocado Compound Butter is an easy recipe that can be made in advance. When you pull your meat off the grill place a slab of butter on top and watch it melt. We had a bunch of avocados that were all ripe at the same time. I needed to find something to do with them all so they would not be wasted.  We could only have homemade guacamole two days in a row. I created a compound butter that we put on top of Grilled Lime Chicken. It was delicious! Avocado Butter Ingredients: 4 Tbsp butter, softened 2 small avocados 1 Tablespoon cilantro 2 teaspoons cumin juice of 1/2 lime zest of 1/2 lime 1 clove garlic, … [Read more...]

Breakfast Burrito from fivelittlechefs.com #burrito #kidscooking #HolidayHelper

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...]

Bacon and Potato Chowder from fivelittlechefs.com #chowder #kidscooking #recipe

We had a little help with the post today. Let's just say it's almost 11 weeks after Haley's surgery and things are still not back to normal. It is pretty difficult staying on top of everything. The Thanksgiving holiday was super busy for us which was more then Haley could handle. As a result we are currently working through a set back.

It can be cooked on the stove or prepped then transferred to the crockpot for later. The bacon can be … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Apple Crackers from fivelittlechefs.com is a simple snack kids can customize themselves! Go on, play with your food! #peanutbutter #apple #kidscooking

The kids come home from school and want a snack right away. Does that sound familiar? Our school gets out late in the day so I do not want to give them a lot to eat or they will not eat their dinner. Of course they are hungry so a little snack to keep them content until dinner is what they need. These Peanut Butter Apple Crackers are fun because the kids can choose their toppings. What kid doesn't like to play with their food! The first step is to wash and cut your apples. Add a splash of lemon juice to keep the apples from browning. Gently stir the apples and the juice together. We have found it best to put some peanut butter in a smaller container so that the actual peanut butter … [Read more...]

Tangy Spinach Chicken Salad

Tangy Spinach Chicken Salad from fivelittlechefs.com #salad #recipe

Do you ever have a night where you want something light and easy? Salads seem to fit that description in our house. We love this Tangy Spinach Chicken Salad because it seems to have little prep work. But then when I think about it the only reason it has little prep work is because we have done the cooking earlier in the day, or the day before. We always have frozen chicken. Once thing I have learned is to defrost the chicken most of the way in the microwave. When it is still slightly firm slice or dice the chicken depending on your recipe. This way the chicken isn't wiggly and sliding all over while we cut. Being just slightly frozen makes the cutting so much easier...and safer for the … [Read more...]
