My two year old, Amelie, loves to help me in the kitchen. Cooking, baking, cleaning, it doesn’t matter, she just wants to help! I’ve been surfing Pinterest, looking for easy Valentine’s Day recipes to make with her. There are a ton of great ideas, but I wanted something *just right*.
Then, last week, I heard PBS was coming out with a brand new Valentine’s Day episode of Curious George. And that’s when it hit me – Monkey Bread! It’s quick, easy for even little hands, and it will go along with watching our favorite monkey!
This ooey gooey creation was a hit with the whole family! My husband said it tasted like an inside-out jelly doughnut, and that’s a very good thing around here. I liked it because it’s easy to convert to dairy free or not, and you can easily switch up the flavors by changing the fruit filling. Next time, I’m going for strawberry rhubarb.
Whip up some raspberry monkey bread, cuddle with the ones you love, and enjoy the new episode Happy Valentine’s Day, George!. It airs February 9th and sounds like it will be a great episode, chock full of George’s usual antics.
In “Happy Valentine’s Day, George,” Curious George wants to make his friends the best Valentine’s Day card ever, but even with four paws, it takes a long time to create homemade cards for everyone. Using sponge shapes, red paint, and a waffle iron, George creates the first ever monkey Valentine’s printing press!
I wonder if Hundley the Dachshund will be in this episode? He’s another favorite of ours.
Do you watch Curious George with your children? Do you have a favorite episode or character?
