"Cooking with Little Guy"

Welcome to my new segment "Cooking with the Little Guy" My older son wanted NOTHING to do with this.

This is going to be random, meaning I will not be posting "Cooking with Little Guy" on any certain day of the week like my Green tips. He is not always a willing participant. Not that he doesn't like to help me in the kitchen but sometimes he has "more important stuff to do" you know, 5 year old boy stuff.

The recipes will be kid friendly-we all know kids love to help us??

I must disclose I have an ugly kitchen. It is dated and we are saving for a remodel. I just had to put that out there. My sweet husband and I have had a 10 year argument over the kitchen, actually the brick. I will save that for the remodel posts whenever they may be!

Now it is time for the first instalment of...."Cooking with little Guy"

Homemade Butter

2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 teaspoon of salt (you can omit for unsalted version)

Put in food processor and turn on-time depends usually 5 minutes or more. (You will know when it is done)

Look it's salted whip cream!

Viola...we have butter.

Use a cheese cloth to get the buttermilk out or scoop out and put in a bowl and use back of spoon to press out the buttermilk.

You can save the buttermilk or discard. (We saved ours and used it for a Banana Bread recipe I have)
There you go homemade butter fun, easy and better then store bought.
We have made several variations of the butter. We have added Cinnamon Sugar and Roasted Garlic.
Hope you enjoyed this segment of "Cooking with Little Guy"
Coming soon interview with Little Guy
