ChopChop Kids Club Newsletter
It’s the perfect time to learn to cook. Check out our newsletter for ideas!
This month we’re eating pears! Plus doing a lot more with them—like ripening them, drawing them, learning from and about them, and turning them into jokes and riddles.
This month we’re cooking with squash! Plus doing a lot more with it—like jack-o’-lantern-themed math games, rotten science experiments, and more. We’re also wondering what your favorite things are about this month. Please drop us a line and let us know!
Welcome to the latest issue of our ChopChop Kids Club newsletter! This month we’re cooking with tomatoes. Or, more precisely, not cooking with tomatoes. Because they’re so good right now you really don’t need to cook them. Some kids we know bite right into tomatoes...
This month we’re cooking with corn. Or at least we’re sharing our simplest, most delicious way to let this summer star shine. Do you eat corn on the cob around and around? Or in rows, like a typewriter?
This week we’re mixing up some refreshing, thirst-quenching drinks. Sometimes plain water can get boring, but we know we need to stay hydrated in the heat. Our main recipe is for Fruit Water: a deceptively simple pitcher of flavor-kissed deliciousness.
This week we’re cooking with watermelon. We’re making ice pops and salads and other fun cool-off recipes. Do you love watermelon as much as we do? Do you like the seedless kind or do you prefer the seeds? Do you cut it in half moons or wedges or chunks? These are just some of the many questions we have for you. There’s plenty more inside.
This week we’re cooking pasta. Do you have pasta night at your house? What’s your favorite pasta shape? Something long, like spaghetti? Short and tubular, like ziti? A fun shape, like wagon wheels or bowties? The main recipe this week is a salad made from orzo, a small rice-shaped pasta that’s fun to eat. The skills you’ll practice will help you cook up any kind of pasta.
This week we’re making Pineapple Frozen Yogurt (we call it fro-yo for short). Even if you can’t go out for ice cream right now, you can make this recipe—or some of our other frozen treats—right in your kitchen. They’re all very easy, so they’re perfect for when you want to chill out.
This week we’re celebrating the Fourth of July by making a Zesty Potato Salad. We think it’s the perfect dish for this holiday, and we’ve also linked to some other festive dishes you and your family can make together. Independence Day is a great time to practice your cooking skills, which help make you independent!
This week we’re making Smashed Cucumber Salad (and yes, you get to do the smashing). How else do you like to eat cucumbers? Do you add them to your sandwiches or your salads?
What about your drinks? (Cucumber Lemonade is one of our favorite drinks for summer!) If you think you don’t love cucumbers, we hope one of our recipes will change your mind.
