Chilled Cucumber and Tomato Soup

This recipe is great, as it allows your young chefs to practice many skills in their culinary skills toolbox to use as they slice and dice cucumbers, scallions, and tomatoes; measure water
and spices; zest and juice lemons; and tear fresh cilantro. Keep this recipe on hand for late summer when the gardens are bursting with ripe cucumber and tomatoes, and it’s too hot to turn on the oven!

Caesar Salad with Chef Bobo’s Caesar Dressing

This is an excellent recipe for your budding chef to make on their own. By making homemade Caesar dressing, you get to control what in what’s in it – fewer preservatives, chemicals, and artificial flavoring. This recipe is adapted from one found in Chef Bobo’s Good Food Cookbook by Robert Serles. Chef Bobo is a great friend of Spoons Across America and is the Executive Chef at The Calhoun School. He’s a vocal proponent of good food for kids and for getting young people into the kitchen.

Healthy Snacks


Garbanzitos are a healthy snack made from chickpeas. Let your child create their blend of spices and seasonings, and sprinkle it on chickpeas that are roasted until they become crispy and crunchy. The seasoning is healthy, delicious, and tastes like Doritos. This seasoning blend is also delicious on roasted vegetables and even meat! You can even shake the seasoning over popcorn.
