National-Parks-and-Recreation-Month-MCS-770x414Why not celebrate Park and Recreation Month with a picnic!? These Lemon Bars from “Jiffy” Mix will surely brighten up your next picnic

July 14, National Summer Learning Day, reminds us to not snooze and lose reading and measurement math skills! Sounds like baking to me! Check out the latest “Book and Bake

In the Kitchen Blog

Summer has a reputation. Teachers and parents fear students will “snooze and lose” reading and math skills. We’re here to tell you, baking is the answer! Not buying it? Find out more information here

Here are the ABCs to bust the summer snoozers:

A: Baking is “all things wheat harvest”—from Texas to North Dakota! Take a virtual wheat farm and harvest tour with our wheat commission members and the farmers they serve.

Send your “summer school” student to view Sprouting Up: Wheat Foods for Kids  and the Whole Grain Council’s featured whole grain of the Month Wheat 

You can also “meet a wheat farmer” via Find the Farmer at Stone Buhr or Meet our Farmers 

B: Book and bake, Blueberries for Sal to see that “baking works!”  Take it to the next level…enter the county fair!

C: Celebrate National Parks or stay local! It’s Park and Recreation Month!

Prep your dough using Bread in a Bag, pack it on ice and head to your favorite park to grill flat bread or pizza 

or, create your own Jurassic Park!

Who said reading, math and science can’t taste great too?
