Well it’s time to introduce my cooking duo!  Anna and Alyssa!  They  have helped in the kitchen since they were practically old enough to stand by themselves and I love having them there!  Comedian Anna0001Sure it’s sometimes messy, but we’re having fun here and they’re learning.  But ssshhh!  Don’t tell them!  :^)

In the last year or so I’ve even let them begin to experiment with recipes of their own design.  This has been super fun and gets them so excited to try new things.  During one of our cooking adventures, they came up with the name Little Sisters, Big Taste as the official logo for their endeavors and created the Scale of Spoonitude (1 Spoon being the easiest of recipes to 5 Spoons being “only with lots of extra help from Mom or Dad”) to tell other kids how hard the recipes are.  I promised to give them some space on my website and so you have recipes that are tried and true from our kitchen, tested by my kids and eaten by Dad of course.  Periodically I will be presenting my dynamic duo and their fun, kid tested and approved recipes.  We hope you enjoy them!

Their first recipe…
In an effort to use some more of our Thanksgiving turkey leftovers, I put a whole bunch of ingredients out on the counter and told them they were in charge of creating dinner.  They took up this challenge with gusto and createdLittle Sisters Big Taste Turkey Tacos with Avocado Sauce.  This is 100% their own recipe with only a little help from me…  After all I didn’t think we should actually cook the cucumber in the taco meat, but sliced, it did make a great side dish.
