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.

Serves 2

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!
