When I told you I was taking a monthlong break … I kind of forgot about a few things I had promised to do. Oops!
First, I was lucky enough to participate in the Secret Recipe Club at Amanda’s Cookin’ this month! It’s a fun swap where you are assigned a blogger and make a recipe from his or her site. Someone else will make a recipe from my site, too! But none of us know who’s been assigned to our site.
I made a recipe from Itzy’s Kitchen. Erica is eight months pregnant and still teaching fitness classes. So, yeah, we’re so much alike! (Ahem.) She seems like a sweet girl, though, and her recipes are healthful and good for those watching their waistlines.
I want to involve Libbie in cooking one day, so I decided to see what I could find on Itzy’s Kitchen. When I saw Chocolate Coconut Oat Granola Bars, I knew they would be perfect for cooking with a toddler. Why? One bowl. Lots of ingredients for Libbie to dump in. Plus, granola bars are pretty much her favorite food on the planet.
I made a few adaptations to the recipe to just use what I had on hand—which Erica recommended, anyway! Here’s what I did to the recipe.
And hey, speaking of cooking with kids …
On Wednesday, I’m co-hosting a chat about cooking with your kids during summer over at the Motherhood. It’s called “Reddi” for Fun Summer, and we’ll chat about making cooking fun and educational for your kids, swap summer menu ideas, and brainstorm some yummy desserts.
Click on that link and join us for the chat Wednesday, June 15, at 1 p.m. Eastern time.
Added to Ingredient Spotlight: Oats.
The Motherhood chat is sponsored by ConAgra, and I will be compensated for my time.
