Farmers Markets & The Oilerie

This summer, ChopChop is participating in our local farmers markets. We are having a blast connecting with our readers and meeting new people to talk about the joys of cooking together as a family. We have also been making yummy dressings to share thanks to our friends at Ball Jars and The Oilerie. We have been using a savory olive oil and balsamic vinegar generously donated by The Oilerie to make them.

Food + Fun Kitchen Playlist

What’s a great way to have a little extra fun while cooking? Listening to music of course! Making a playlist can help you get in the spirit of cooking, so dance around while you stir and sauté. Plus, music makes cleanup (which can sometimes seem like a chore) totally fun! Of course, your kitchen playlist doesn’t have to be food themed, but we think it adds some flavor! Here are some of our favorites:

Banana Pancakes – Jack Johnson


SeaSprinkles Roasted Seaweed Snack

Crunchy and slightly salty, SeaSprinkles Roasted Seaweed Snacks are a great addition to any lunchbox or summer road trip. Plain and simple, their Original flavor is roasted with olive and sesame oil. They are then lightly flavored with coconut palm sugar, sea salt and sesame seeds to add some flair.  These delightfully addictive snacks are a great alternative to potato chips. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try sprinkling them on stir-fry, pizza, or salad.
