One-Pot Chicken Chorizo

Cooking for Families I like to choose one-pot meals to make for my Nanny Family. One pot means less washing and clean up. The chorizo in this recipe adds a nice spice for the parents but I left the spicy sausage off of the children’s chicken pieces. You Will Need: Coconut oil, for greasing and […]

Chicken Stew

Cooking for Families This chicken stew made with chicken drumsticks and thighs is sure to be a favorite of yours in the colder months. I made this recipe my Mom Boss gave to me to make for their family in her Dutch oven. I recommend adding any other extra vegetables you have in the fridge […]

Herbed Half Duck

Cooking for Families It’s officially holiday season and serving duck is the most impressive dish. Serving turkey is too much for many families to serve for Thanksgiving so duck is a great substitute. You can carve the duck into small slices but the boys in my Nanny Family love it so much I just serve […]

Tomato Soup with Croutons

Cooking for Families Instead of serving processed and highly salted cans of soup Nanny Family likes this tomato soup that is easy for me to make. I don’t add hot sauce, or arugula since the kids don’t like those ingredients. The croutons can be made one day ahead. Store airtight at room temperature. You Will […]

Zucchini Lasagna

Cooking for Families Many people are following low carb diets and enjoy zucchini lasagna. Zucchini has a lot of water in it so making zucchini lasagna is a longer process than making lasagna with noodles made with wheat flour. Zucchini lasagna doesn’t taste like wheat noodle lasagna. But it’s delicious. Grilling works best to remove […]

Chicken Paillards with Clementine Salsa

Barbecue Chicken Legs Over Yellow Rice

Cooking for Families My Nanny Kids love chicken legs and dark meat. So it is smart to serve them family full chicken legs that include the dark meat with the thighs rather than chicken breast all of the time. I found this amazing barbecue sauce recipe at greedygourmet.com.  Simply adding frozen mixed vegetables to yellow […]

Udon Chicken Peanut Butter Noodles

Cooking for Kids My Nanny Kids love Asian udon noodles. So I whipped up this easy lunch for them this week. Be careful when using chili sauce when cooking for kids. You may need to use less or not use any at all if the children don’t like spice. I added cucumber to the dish […]
