Happy Martin Luther King Day! We celebrated this important day at the barn with the Best of HealthBarn USA Day from 9-3:00 p.m.! Aside from the fun activities of the day, we held our first photo shoot for HealthBarn USA’s upcoming book being published September 2012 by HarperOne, an imprint of Harper Collins Publishers! The kids rose to the occasion and stepped into their star power as Ted Axelrod (Ted Axelrod Photography) snapped away.
Stacey and the kids kicked off the day by added “no touching Ted’s camera” to the barn rules — and from that point forward we all had a blast. Our first food demonstration was making sweet potato pancakes. The barn mural was too busy of a background, so we had to start all over again! We pulled it all together with our absolute favorite recipe — The Yum! Yum! Dumplings — which always gets double thumbs up.
A special thank you to Katie Gorman who was behind-the-scenes for hair and food preparation. The next photo shot is scheduled for Wednesday, January 25 when we photograph 14 of the 100+ recipes for a beautifully designed color insert. Stay tuned as we come into the home stretch with our exciting book that includes activities and nutritious recipes for the whole family.
