Week ONE: Recap!

Welcome to our First Fall Session of Taste Buddies Kids Cooking class! Each week we'll post our in-class recipes, plus a recap with helpful tips, here on the Bub Hub Blog.

Macaroni and cheese... cupcakes? You betcha! We started out the session with a bang with a macaroni and cheese casserole, baked in a mini-cupcake pan. We then went on to make sauteed snap green beans, blue yogurt parfaits, and cinnamon oranges. What a feast!

This is a great way to spice up mac and cheese for your kids. You can use any baked mac and cheese recipe that you have, and serve from a mini-cupcake pan!

Snap green beans are a great way to get kids involved with dinner. You can have them snap the ends off of the beans before sauteing them in the pan. Plus, they taste great by themselves if you don't feel like cooking!

You can make this recipe with blue jello or vanilla yogurt. Today we chose to use yogurt in our parfait because it is so much fun to use food coloring in the kitchen with kids! We watched our yogurt turn into an ocean today as we swirled in our blue food coloring. We then topped it off with some whipped cream for the ocean foam and added some swedish fish. Time for swimming!

This is a great treat that especially tastes good in the winter, when oranges are in peak season. We had our Taste Buddies use pastry brushes to paint our orange slices with lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice, and cinnamon. The cinnamon really brings out the flavor of the orange. This is also a great treat to pack in a lunch!
