Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th, and I am so excited that I will be spending my Saint Patrick’s Day teaching a Kid’s Cooking Class at the Park City Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah. We we will be making kid-friendly apres ski snacks to make in the condo. See more information about this fun class on the“Snowmama” website. One of the recipes I’ll be making in the class is this healthy, easy and very simple Saint Patrick’s Day Fresh Herb Dip. It’s a great way to get the kids to try fresh herbs such as basil and dill and to eat fresh vegetables. I like to use reduced-fat Greek yogurt in this recipe because it has so may health benefits and is filled with protein which is perfect after a long day of skiing. Enjoy this recipe on Saint Patrick’s Day or any time of the year.
My daughter, Leigh, and her friend Eloise have been at it again in the kitchen decorating Christmas Cupcakes. They did an amazing job, once again. They started by researching what cupcake designs they wanted to do with a few bottles of icing and some holiday candies and sprinkles. They created these fabulous cupcakes below completely on their own. This is great holiday craft idea to do with the kids and kids’ friends, and it’s so easy and inexpensive to do. Enjoy their talented creations below:
Over spring break (I can’t believe it has been a month), I had the ultimate pleasure and honor to teach my “Healthy Baking for Kid’s Cooking Class” at Studio B in Alys Beach. It was such a wonderful experience in an incredible venue, Studio B, located at the most beautiful beach in the country, Alys Beach. We had originally planned for 15 kids, but when 24 arrived, we didn’t turn them away. We made all types of wonderful healthy baked (and no bake) treats. I will feature some on the blog this coming week. Below, is a shot of some of my hometown Birmingham friend’s children who attended and some other shots taken from the class by the talented, Colleen Duffley, owner of Studio B.
I’m very excited about the upcoming cooking class at Studio B in Alys Beach. It’s almost full, so if you’re interested act fast and send me an email. I will be teaching “Healthy Baking for Kids and the Secret Ingredient”. We will be using Greek yogurt, Gluten-free brown rice cereal, mashed bananas, Gluten-free, organic candy, peanut butter and more create incredible confections for kids!
I have been teaching a lot of children’s cooking classes lately, and I’m so fortunate to teach over spring break in Alys Beach, Florida at Studio B. Studio B is one of the most beautiful places in the country in Alys Beach. Founded by world renowned photographer, Colleen Duffley, Studio B is a creative venue that brings together the best of the best in the fields of photography, art, design, literature, food, and wine. It’s creativity in an incredible relaxed atomosphere, “A playground for the imagination,” Colleen says. If your children are interested in baking, this will be a special treat for them. In “Healthy Baking for Kid’s and the Secret Ingredient,” we will be baking delicious baked treats with a healthy edge (all made with a secret ingredient such as Greek Yogurt, egg whites, and more). The class will be held Sunday, March 14th from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information, see Studio B, email me, or contact me on Facebook or twitter.
My kids love Banana Bread so when we have overripe bananas they always get put to good use. My oldest son, Alec, has really taken to cooking lately (i hope he’s not going to be mad I wrote this). I was so busy in the kitchen tonight with lasagna and spaghetti that I said, “Why don’t you make it yourself?” He took a recipe of mine and modified it using no mixer, one bowl and stirred it all together at once. He substituted Greek yogurt for the buttermilk, and it came out great! He was so surprised and proud when it came out of the oven, and I was really excited and impressed. It’s a great recipe. I hope it is one of many of his to come.
