Let’s Get Moving In the Kitchen

May is the perfect month to turn pinning into doing. Celebrating good times is happening weekly if not daily and calls for a wide variety of personal touches.

Make your first touch small. Whether it’s a school party or a family event, make the treats1950’s-sized or mini-bites when compared to today’s portions.

Make the second touch “serve safe” as you cut and serve treats to friends, family, or the public. Take a refresher course at our favorite site

Don’t forget Mother’s Day is this Sunday!

If it’s Moms you’re celebrating, Chocolate Waffles come to mind!

Get Dad in the game baking muffins, or grilling BLT Pizza 

Don’t forget the selfies of cleaning up the kitchen!

Hosting, serving and celebrating are all teachable moments for making people welcome and appreciated. Use this great graphic to help young and old remember the basics:

 Let your final touch be Memorial Day. First interview staff or residents at senior care centers about their favorite baked item. Bake it and return to make a living memory with our often forgotten elders, so many of whom are veterans.
