I am developing a love-hate relationship with this fabulous new time-suck…but, when it comes to finding new food inspiration, the feeling is generally one of love.
When I clicked on the original pin for this recipe, I fully expected the bright pink color to be a result of Jello, cake mix or insanely large amounts of food coloring that would’ve sent me clicking away. Instead, I was amazed to find that freshly pureed strawberries added to the lemon-sugar mixture result in a shade of pink so super girly vibrant that it would Pinkaliscious smile 🙂
I actually want to play with this recipe some more, maybe trying a few different types of berries to get different colored bars. And maybe a thicker crust–I’ll keep you posted.
I found the inspiration for this recipe over at the Vitamin G blog on Glamour magazine's website and am raring to try it out on my kids sometime this week. I plan to use blueberries and to use a splash of maple syrup or a couple of tablespoons of sugar instead of the honey to make it friendly to my 11 month old (honey isn't considered safe until a year+). We'll see how it goes 🙂 and I'll post any other changes that I make.
