The Honey Cottage for Kids- Lily’s spread

At The Honey Cottage; we get asked all the time how to use jalapeno and apricot habanero jellies. I was super sad when mom would answer, use it with cream cheese. I don’t like hot stuff! I was surprised when mom said we can use other types of jam! I am so excited to share this recipe; I used blueberry peach honey butter from Honeyville. I think this recipe is super special because of how yummy it is!

Ingredients:

8 ounces of cream cheese

1/2 a jar of blueberry peach honey butter

Directions:

We use a separate plate for the cream cheese so it does not soak into the crackers.

Open the cream cheese and place it onto a small plate. Pour half a jar of blueberry peach honey butter on top. Serve with crackers and enjoy!!

The Honey Cottage for Kids – Honey Chocolate Milk from Lily Bee’s Kitchen!

IMG_1759

My favorite drink is honey chocolate milk; I like it because I can drink this hot or cold. Plus, I can make it by myself. I use the honey because it is so good in chocolate milk and it makes my taste buds very happy! I don’t like sugar because it is overly sweet. I also like that I can use different honeys; like blueberry or local honey. I don’t get it a lot, but I really love this drink with whip cream.

Ingredients:

8 ounces-Milk

1 Tbsp.-Honey

1 Tbsp.- Cocoa powder

Directions: 

I take about 3 ounces of the milk and warm it up in the microwave, 30 seconds. I then add the honey to the milk and give it a good stir. Then I add the cocoa powder and stir it until thoroughly mixed. Then add the rest of the milk and stir again. If your like me, you will love whip cream on top! Enjoy the honey chocolate milk!!

I love this recipe; it is delicious and easy to make. There is nothing better than honey, ham, and cheese all together. In this recipe I add apple and cinnamon whipped honey from Honeyville. Sometimes I eat just the honey, ham, and cheese rolls by themselves and sometimes I slice them up and put them on crackers.  I hope you love the flavors as much as I do!

Ingredients:

5 slices of ham

4 ounces of cream cheese

2 Tbsp. of Apple cinnamon whipped honey

Directions: 

Lay the ham flat on a plate; mix together the cream cheese and the apple cinnamon whipped honey. Spread a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture evenly onto the ham and roll them up! Serve by themselves or eat with cut up vegetables.

The Honey Cottage for Kids & Honey Boats from Lily Bee’s Kitchen

Celery and honey

What do you do with honey?

At The Honey Cottage we have heard a lot of questions, but by far our favorite it; what do you do with honey? If you have been in at The Honey Cottage and asked me, you see me get all giddy and excited as I explode with all the ways you can use honey.

Several times Lily has been with me at the shop and was shocked when one kid said they did not like eating honey by itself. As you can imagine, her jaw dropped and she looked at me in shock. I explained to her that some kids don’t know how to use honey.

Lily had an idea idea to start making recipes that are simple, fun, and allow kids to use their imagination with honey! So we are now starting The Honey Cottage for Kids specifically for kid friendly recipes. We hope you are as buzzed as we are!!

This month’s pick is:

Honey Boats

Ingredients:

3 Stalks of celery

2 TBSP-Peanut Butter

1 TBSP-Raw Honey

Toppings:

-Flaked coconut

-Raisins

-Dried Blueberries

-Chocolate chips

-Walnuts

-Honey

Directions:

Cut the celery stalks into 2-3 inch sticks. Stir the peanut butter and the raw honey together. Spread the peanut butter and honey on top of the celery sticks. Stick the flaked coconut on top so it looks like sails. Add raisins, chocolate chips, and walnuts to a couple of sticks. Add blueberries, chocolate chips, and walnuts to another couple of sticks. Finish the remaining sticks with chocolate chips and walnuts (my mom loves this one because it kind of tastes like a candy bar). I like adding a drizzle of honey on top too!
