Fabulous Family Fun #2 (Hint: Chocolate is involved)

25 Family Activities Celebrating 25 Years! 

We are celebrating with you and sharing 25 activities enjoyed by our families over the past 25 years.

We all know that summer requires shade and indoor options, but most of the activities can be adapted to year round fun!

Edible Kitchen Science! 

YaYa’s in the Kitchen creating chocolate chip brownies with fresh organic raspberries and local organic blueberries from Green Meadows Farm (GMF).

YaYa and YoYo were in the blueberry fields on opening day 2019 at GMF.

Since many families have a favorite brownie recipe or mix, use what you prefer or try a new recipe. Then, add 1 cup of fresh berries and fold them gently into your batter.

YES, YaYa also added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips!

You can use one berry or any combination that works for your family. If you choose strawberries or blackberries, you may want to slice or quarter them.

We suggest that you allow your little ones choose the type of berries and the topping.

Today, YaYa sprinkled the top of the batter with sliced almonds before baking. But, you can stir nuts into the batter or omit nuts if that is not your “thing”.

Be sure to visit YaYa’s other recipes for more family baking fun!

YaYa’s in the Kitchen: Peach & Blueberry Crumble

What’s a YaYa to Do?

When a box arrives on a Saturday afternoon and your husband suggests you open it, well you open it!

A new beautiful pie plate inside with a sweet note, “A treat for YaYa’s Kitchen!”

It is true, life is timing as YoYo just picked tomatoes at a local farm and also came home with fresh Georgia peaches. Our fridge and freezer are also filled with hand-picked with local organic blueberries the two weekends prior.

Hmmm…What’s a YaYa to do?

YaYa’s in the Kitchen: Pumpkin Cream Chocolate Towers

First Fall Recipe 2017

It is that time of year when we remember that fall is on the way.

While there is a collective exhaustion from Hurricane Irma passing through last week, it is time to resume our routines.

Today that means selecting a pumpkin recipe. However, pumpkin bread will have to wait as there is an oven on the fritz.

Hmmm, what are a YaYa and her assistant to do?!
