Looking for a fresh new recipe to try for your weekend entertaining? How about a taste of paradise from Atlantis the Bahamas resort. A few months ago we tested out the resort--though the main meals were a little bland, the desert table continuously wowed us.

This kid-friendly recipe is shared with Momtrends courtesy of Valerie Gray, Head Pastry Chef of the new Atlantis Kids Club kitchen.

Atlantis Kids Adventures (AKA) is a new 8,000-square-foot state-of-the-art kid'??s club, complete with a culinary kitchen where young guests are provided the ultimate culinary immersion with hands-on daily cooking demonstrations in a fully functioning kitchen. Our little chef tester loved the club and I can highly recommend the resort for active families--you've got to earn all those calories! To read the full report go here.
