August Cooking Camp!
The August cooking camp was last week and everyone had a blast! We made lots of yummy recipes, including Spaghetti and Meatballs, Honey Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, Homemade Ketchup, Patty Melts, German Chocolate Cupcakes and several other things. All the students got to go home with a taste of everything we made as well as book full of all the recipes at the end of the camp. The skills we worked on was learning how measure out ingredients, whisking, what it means to simmer or boil, and how change out refined sugars with unrefined sugars to help make sweets a little healthier. ;) Here's a pic of the kids making one of my favorite meals, French Toast! We used the Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread we made to make the french toast. It was divine!
The kids all did great and I hope that they had just as much fun as I did. :) It made me super excited for the fall and the monthly classes. I hope to see some of your faces there in one of the fall classes. Here are some more highlights.
