I love to cook. It is my dream. That is why I want to have a restaurant too so that I can make that dream come true. I even have a food blog!

Here are some easy recipes that I cook with my mom that are easy and fun for kids. They are also peanut and gluten free because we have food allergies!

Homemade Guacamole


  • 2-3 cut and mashed ripe avocados
  • ¼ cup onions (finely chopped)
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 2-4 drops lime juice
  • ½ cup sour cream


  1. Get out all your ingredients.
  2. Get out a cutting board, a medium bowl, a can opener, measuring cups, a sharp knife, and a spoon.
  3. On your cutting board cut your avocados in half, take out the seed, and squeeze the inside of the avocado into the bowl. Smash up the avocado together in the bowl.
  4. Start finely chopping your onions to fill ¼ measuring cup, when your done put them in the bowl.
  5. Put your sour cream in the bowl next.
  6. Drain the can of Rotel and then put it in the bowl.
  7. Use the spoon to stir around the ingredients.
  8. If you are planning on saving it for later put a few drops of lime juice in there and put it in the refrigerator.

Now you know my guacamole recipe and I think this goes great with chips and pork tacos.


Kids Sangria

The next easy recipe you can make is one my mom and I found online & changed up a little. We really liked it.


  • ½ cup white grape juice
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup Sprite
  • Maraschino cherries and/or orange slices


  1. Mix ingredients per glass
  2. Add ice cubes & enjoy!

This drink really goes with almost anything. The kids sangria is really good and does not have any caffeine.


Cherry Cheesecake

I got this recipe from Mi-Del’s gluten-free graham style pie crust package.


  • One 8 oz. package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 4 oz. heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 can cherries


  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, add sugar, mix well. Add sour cream and vanilla then mix well.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks begin to form. Beat in confectioner’s sugar until peaks forms; do not overbeat. Fold whipped cream into prepared bowl from large bowl.
  3. Spoon into graham style pie crust.
  4. Refrigerate for four hours before serving.
  5. Serve with cherries on top

This dessert can also have chocolate syrup, whipped cream, caramel, or berries on it instead of cherries.

I hope you enjoyed the recipes I picked out!
