This Zucchini Brownies Recipe was shared by Charis Freiman-Mendel from her amazing cookbook- Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T. I love the unique idea behind this cookbook! Kids and families can enjoy quality time together making the recipes, which are easy to prepare, and then enjoy the dishes, which are tasty and healthy. But here is the kicker- while preparing the meal, kids can also enjoy a short tidbit of information about each recipe (the “fun fact blurb”) which contains 10 vocabulary words that appear on all standardized tests. Great food, great facts, learning and sharing together…. it’s completely win- win for all involved, perfect for mommy-and-me time for kids of all ages. Younger kids will want to focus on the recipes because the reading/vocab is targeted to tweens and up. How cool!
