Download This Mini White House Cookbook

Five easy, family friendly recipes, from the White House to Your House...
First Lady Michelle Obama threw a big South Lawn party on Monday to celebrate the success of the HealthierUS School Challenge. All 1,000 guests were given a lovely little book containing five recipes created by the White House chefs. It is now available to the public in digital format, which is a first for the Let's Move! campaign and the White House. Included are recipes for Cauliflower Mac and Cheese; Broccoli Soup; Grilled Chicken Salad with greens; Warm Baked Apples with Dried Cherries, Raisins, and Blueberries; and Fruit and Oat Snack Bars. DOWNLOAD the book here [PDF]. (Above: The cover of the mini cookbook)

Each recipe is family friendly, low-fat and healthy, of course. Check the sidebar of this blog for all the previously released White House recipes.

White House Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses and Assistant Pastry Chef Susie Morrison demonstrated the Fruit and Oat Snack bars during Mrs. Obama's party on Monday, to much enthusiasm from the crowd.

"It was a wonderful day," Yosses said.

Mrs. Obama's party decorations were pretty special, too. Check them out here.
