Newbie – Getting kids in the Kitchen

 I had the chance to be out of town for a few days with some girlfriends while my wonderful husband stayed home with my four daughters. It is so great for them to spend time together and always great for mom to take a few days to rejuvenate!

To my wonderful surprise my five year took over the kitchen and created her, as she calls it, “Famous Secret Recipe” which has recently been changed to “Special Recipe” because she loves telling everyone how to make it! This dish has become quite famous in the last month at our house. Now all four of my kiddos make it on a daily basis and even share with friends! It is so simple, yet so delish. Emily has converted many friends and even a few new neighbors have had the delightful chance to taste her special recipe!

Emily’s “Special Recipe” Chick Peas



1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed



Onion Powder

Garlic Powder



Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, add seasonings to taste. Each of my kids make it slightly different based on their taste buds and they munch on these while reading, watching a movie, or playing.

We also use these new recipe to top salads and they make a great center for lunches!
