Whenever I BBQ I always think to myself, what can I cook as a side dish that requires the grill? Why leave a big open space on the grill when you can fill it with something else that smells delicious! Cooking in foil is one of my favorite ways to make easy recipes. All those delicious juices are trapped inside the foil marinating whatever is inside. Cooking in foil makes clean up a breeze. Just throw away the foil and you have one less pan to scrub. That is always a good thing in my house!  These Herbed Sweet Potatoes are so good! All the kids gave this recipe two thumbs up to make all summer long!  Herbed Sweet Potatoes 4 servings Ingredients: 1/2 tsp dried rosemary 1/2 tsp … [Read more...]

Breakfast Burrito

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. She is crying a lot again which is not fun for anyone in the house! It is too painful to go out of the house but because I am good friends with Amazon now can buy all my christmas and birthday gifts online. This Bacon and Potato Chowder recipe is versatile. 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...]

Walk The Plank Salmon

An easy salmon recipe to prepare with soy and ginger flavors from fivelittlechefs.com #salmon #kidscooking

Next Thursday is "Talk Like A Pirate Day."  My Little Chefs and I thought it would be fun to make a piratey menu for the day and have a piratey activity. Walk the Plank Salmon is an easy recipe. I would say it is a quick recipe except for it has 30 minutes of marinade time.  If you call a recipe that can be made in 1 hour quick then this is one of those. Submerge your cedar planks in water for 30 minutes. You will need to start with a defrosted salmon or salmon fillets. Whether you buy it frozen and defrost it or buy it fresh that is your choice. In a small bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, maple syrup, soy sauce and black pepper. This is a great recipe for your Little Chefs to practice … [Read more...]

Cheesy Pull Apart Sourdough Bread

Cheesy Pull Apart Sourdough Bread from fivelittlechefs.com #kidscooking #bread

To continue on with our Pirate theme, yesterday we had Sun Roasted Broccoli and today we are sharing our Cheesy Pull Apart Sourdough Bread. I'm sure the bread the pirates had was not freshly made but that isn't stopping us from making something delicious today. What I love about this recipe is you are not making the bread, you get to buy a round loaf of sourdough. That saves a lot of time! The cutting of the bread is a little tricky, your Little Chefs might need some assistance. When cutting do NOT cut all the way through the bread. Leave about 1/2 inch on the bottom of the bread uncut. You do not want the bread to fall apart yet. First you cut in one direction 1 inch slices from one end … [Read more...]

Sun Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli from fivelittlechefs.com #kidscooking #broccoli

Next Thursday is "Talk Like A Pirate Day." We thought it would be fun to have a pirate menu and craft/activity to make it a fun filled pirate day. That is why we are sharing "Sun Roasted Broccoli" today. Those pirates are on the ship all day being roasted by the sun. First, wash your broccoli and then chop it into bite sized pieces. Some of ours were bite sized and some were larger, it depends on the chef and how particular they are. I prefer bite sized pieces because then I do not need to help cut the broccoli into smaller pieces later. That's ok, it will all cook no matter the size. Now the hard part is over and the rest is quick and easy. Place the cut broccoli on a cookie sheet … [Read more...]
