Inspirations for Youth and Families (IYF) taught our teens an array of recipes as a part of our Nutritional and Life Skills course. From bean soup, baked apples to even smoothies our staff taught the teens to prepare and cook meals both healthy and delectable for themselves.
Our teens got a chance to prepare something a bit more sweet. The teens were taught how to bake oatmeal and peanut butter cookies. This is an easy to follow recipe that our clients had no problem following and had a blast creating. Many of our teens shared how excited they were to share this new skill with their friends and family.
Here are our teens:
