Fried Cinnamon Sugar Apple Rings #kidsinthekitchen

Fried Cinnamon Apple Rings with Glaze #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids #recipe #apples

This might be my proudest moment ever as a parent. Cooking with the kids has had many stumbling blocks and of course successes. One of my favorite moments was when Shae and I made our own chewy soft pretzels and the non-cooking post with the clay mini food. This week for #kidsinthekitchen Shaun stepped up […]

Salted Caramel Monkey Bread #recipe #streamteam

Breakfast is the most important meal of my day. I love having something special and delicious first thing in the morning like chocolate chip waffles or Nutella and banana pancakes. Basically I just like having chocolate and candy for breakfast. One of my favorite special breakfasts to have is monkey bread. Its essentially just biscuits […]

CHA-Hoisin-Glazed-Roasted-Chicken-Wings

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Texas Pete for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Something happened with Rob’s palette 2years ago. He started craving super spicy foods and adding hot sauce to everything. Now when it’s time to set the table for any meal the kids are required to […]




Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #kidsinthekitchen

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #recipe #kidsinthekitchen #cereal #sweettreats

Afterschool snacks tend to be healthy and on the small side so they don’t interfere with dinner. But there comes that moment when the kids are wanting something different than celery with peanut butter or a yogurt. That’s when the genius of Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats happens. I honestly think these are better than traditional […]




Grilled Spicy Pork Kabobs #recipe

Grilled Spicy Pork Kabobs #recipe

Cooking is an adventure in our house. I’m often scrambling around 2pm thinking of what can thaw quickly or what I have that’s easy to eat. I’m great at meal planning it’s following through on that plan is where I fail. My family eats well though because I always pull through with something delicious. These […]




Panko Crusted Cod #recipe #fivestarhomefoods

Panko Crusted Cod #recipe #fivestarhomefoods

One of the very first dishes I made with my Five Star Home Foods delivery was Panko Crusted Cod.  I’m not one to fry my food, like ever so I baked this dish. Fish is one of those meals that everyone eats, but unfortunately I don’t make very often.  I’m picky about my fish, I […]




Sautéed Shrimp and Risotto #kidsinthekitchen

Sautéed Shrimp and Risotto #kidsinthekitchen

Sometimes dinner gets fancy. Especially when Shae starts leafing through my cookbooks. This is how our Sautéed Shrimp and Risotto dish happened. I feel like this is has been the most involved Shae has been in a meal preparation EVER. She definitely took all the credit for dinner this night. Rightfully so too. She peeled […]




Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen

Watermelon Lemonade made by kids #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids

After our tropical vacation last week Shae came home craving refreshing and exotic drinks with umbrellas and whipped cream. We compromised with this Watermelon Lemonade Drink Recipe because it was easy to create and we had all the ingredients on hand. Easy might for us might not be for you. The hardest part of the […]




Frozen Banana Pops #kidsinthekitchen

Frozen Banana Pops #kidsinthekitchen #recipe, cooking with kids

You know I’m always on the hunt for new snacks and treats for the kids. Lately they seem to be asking for ice cream all the time. Our pool snackbar has ice cream so it happens more often that it’s becoming an afternoon snack versus a once in a while treat. I wanted to find […]




Cinnamon Apple Crisp #recipe #kidsinthekitchen

Kids in the Kitchen making Cinnamon Apple Crisp #kidsinthekitchen

I love having a helper in the kitchen. Especially one that can read, measure (for the most part) and mix without getting most of the ingredients on the counter. Shae is gonna be one hell of cook and baker when she grows up because she’s always wanting to make something.  This week’s Cinnamon Apple Crisp […]
