There's something magical about cooking with your kids. Not only does it teach them essential life skills, but it also provides a great opportunity for bonding. In this blog post, we'll share some fun and easy recipes that you can prepare with your little ones using farm-fresh ingredients from Triple E Farm. Our recipes are inspired by traditional cooking, Weston A. Price principles and approach to nutrition and health

1. Mini Beef Meatballs

Our first recipe is a simple yet delicious dish that kids will love - Mini Beef Meatballs. Not only will they love eating it they will love helping get their hands dirty and rolling the meatballs along side of you. The beef used in this recipe comes straight from our farm, ensuring high quality and taste.

2. Cheesy Scrambled Eggs

Up next, we've got a breakfast classic - Cheesy Scrambled Eggs. It's a great way to fuel up for the day, chock full of protein from our fresh-from-the-farm eggs and cheese. The kiddos love this because they get to stir the eggs in the pan until they're just right!

Ingredients:

  • 4 Triple E Farm eggs
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of grated cheese from Triple E Farm
  • Butter to taste
  • Instructions:
  • Beat the eggs and milk together in a bowl.
  • Pour the mixture into a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
  • Stir gently until the eggs start to set.
  • Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs and continue to stir until fully cooked.

3. Hearty Chicken and Vegetable Soup

Our last recipe is a super cozy Chicken and Vegetable Soup that's just right for those cold days. We use our own farm-raised chicken and a bunch of fresh veggies. It's a hit with kids, especially when they get to help chop up the veggies and throw them in the pot. To top it off, read 'Stone Soup' together and bam! You've got a fun new family tradition

Ingredients:

  • 1 Triple E Farm chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs (parsley, thyme, rosemary)
  • Butter to taste

Instructions:

Place the chicken pieces in a large pot and cover with water.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through.

Remove the chicken from the pot and let it cool. Once cooled, remove the meat from the bones.

Return the chicken meat to the pot, add the chopped vegetables and herbs, and simmer until the vegetables are tender.

These recipes are not only delicious but also nutritious, adhering to the principles of traditional cooking, Weston A. Price nutrition. They provide an excellent way to introduce your kids to the joy of cooking and the importance of eating fresh, locally sourced food.
