I know I am not supposed to play favorites but I will. Of all the stories that I have done over the years, this one, Read, Cook, Love, is my favorite. I love writing for Parents (the team there ROCKS) and I love what they did with my idea and recipes. They have made it shine!! The story is in the November 2011 issue of Parents magazine.
It is our tradition – I take books that the kids love to read and we create dishes around them! I hope you will see the slideshow above and leave comments! WOuld LOVE your thoughts.
Here is an additional recipe that is not in the show:
Winnie the Pooh Honey-Blueberry Shake
Top this with an edible bumblebee or a unsprayed edible flowers. You can make bees with yellow jelly beans and a tube of black icing, or purchase sugar bumblebees from www.thepartyworks.com.
1 cup plain yogurt (full fat, low fat, or fat-free)
1 cup blueberries, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons honey (divided 1 + 1)
Whipped cream to top (optional)
Edibles bees or edible flowers for garnish
Kids: Put the yogurt, blueberries, and 1 tablespoon of honey in the blender.
Grown-up: Cover and blend until smooth. Pour the shake into the glasses.
Kids: Top with whipped cream, if you like.
Kids: Drizzle the remaining honey over the shakes. Float a couple of bees or a flower on top of the honey. Add a straw and drink!
