I had a great opportunity to return to The Morning Brew show on Local 44 News (WVNY/WFFF) to share some summertime kid-friendly recipes!
My first visit to The Morning Brew was to chat with Chief Meteorologist Amanda Thibault about my winning recipe in the Girl Scouts National Cookie Recipe Contest, and to chat about this blog and my recipes. Amanda kindly invited me to return to share a couple of recipes that would be great to make with kids, now that they’re home for the summer, hungry and looking for something to do!
One recipe my family and I love to make in the summer is this Strawberry Lime Smoothie with Bits of Chocolate.It is sweet and refreshing, and has tons of protein thanks to two flavors of Greek yogurt. And the chocolate chips? Well, who doesn’t love a bit of chocolate. Tasty pieces are scattered throughout this yummy smoothie. Kids can use a strawberry huller to remove the tops from fresh strawberries, and then all ingredients get added to the blender. Easy and fun!

Another great recipe to make with kids are my Mason Jar Trifles. Fresh, summer fruit is layered with homemade shortcake and whipped cream in cute, single-serving mason jars. I have two varieties to take advantage of some of this delectable, seasonal fruit: Triple Berry and Cherry Nectarine. The shortcake recipe is very simple. The dough comes together quickly and the shortcake rounds bake up in a flash. Children will love adding the ingredients to the jars and creating the layers. Almost as much as they’ll love eating them! Click below to watch us assemble the trifles. For the trifle recipes, click here.
Many thanks to Amanda, Brittney and the incredible at The Morning Brew for having me as a guest. I had a lot of fun and I appreciate the chance to share what I do. And thank you as always to my husband and son: my entourage and my roadies!
