Kids Class = Good Times!

We had our inaugural session of Rosemont Cooks for kids and had a great turnout with lots of kids having fun, learning and eating what they made. For our first class, we made banana bread and fruit smoothies. Through this, the kids started to learn basic baking techniques that ranged from the proper way to measure flour, to how to check if a cake is done by using a toothpick or, just as useful, a piece of spaghetti.
We also made fruit smoothies, and I was successful in sneaking in some baby spinach into the smoothies and surprised many of the kids when I told them how healthy it is for them, and I think they were surprised that it was good in a shake. They also put together their own smoothies with bananas, frozen mixed fruit, plain yogurt, orange and apple juice and of course the spinach and ice. We had so much fun that I forgot to take pictures of the finished product! But, yes, we really did make banana bread and smoothies.
