Everything in my March 2020 box!

Every box has a featured tool. This month, it’s a tong!

Used to serve food and to grip and lift hot foods when baking or grilling.

Push the lock to open then squeeze arms together to pinch and grab food.

It’s a stainless tong with ergonomic silicon grip, non-detachable heads coated in silicone, and a ring-pull locking system for easy storage.

We also got a Raddish Kids white apron made from premium quality fabric. This can be used not just for the first box but for the rest of the boxes as well.

The apron features the Raddish logo. My kids like this apron because it’s lightweight and easy to wear.

Inside the envelope are small cards containing some culinary skill lessons, guides, and some fun and exciting activities!

Also included in the envelope is this month’s monthly collectible: a colorful apron patch that features a horse.

They encourage us to visit their website to get bonus recipes, lesson plans, musical playlists, activities, and more.

This card contains all the information you need to know about this month’s box. It lists all the culinary skills your kids will be acquiring, the recipe names, collectibles, and other games and activities.

The back of the card provides a complete grocery list for all the featured recipes this month. The recipes are Nordic Cinnamon Buns, Swedish Meatballs, and Scandinavian Smorgasboard.

Another card is about Dala Horse, a traditional Swedish handicraft made from carved wood.

The back of the card gives us a detailed step-by-step procedure that we can use to create our own Dala Horse, while the other card contains the Dala Horse’s template.

We also received exclusive Table Talk conversation starter cards.

Each card contains some questions for a great table talk conversation.

Here are this month’s recipe guides!

The first recipe is Nordic Cinnamon Buns. It’s a classic twisted bread with cinnamon and powdered sugar.

Active Kitchen Time: 40-50 minutes

Rise Time: 1 hour (or overnight in the fridge)

Bake Time: 16 minutes

Yield: 8 cinnamon buns

Featured at the back of the recipe guide is the featured culinary skill. For Nordic Cinnamon Buns, it’s Kneading Dough.  Kneading is the process of mixing dough, and making the baked goods light and fluffy!

Inside the booklet are the recipe’s ingredients and tools for the project. There’s also a portion on this page where we could learn some Swedish words.

Ingredients for the Nordic Cinnamon Buns are milk, flour, instant or rapid-rise yeast, sugar, kosher salt, vegetable oil, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and powdered sugar.

This recipe guide is so informative and very convenient to use, they even provided illustrations so you’ll know if you’re on right track.

First, we combined flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in a large bowl!

My daughter mixed it until it became a dough!

When the dough comes together, you just have to dust a cutting board with flour and knead the dough for 5-7 minutes or until it becomes smooth and elastic.

Even my youngest daughter joined in on the fun! After using their hands to knead the dough, it’s now time to use a rolling pin to turn it to a thin rectangle.

The next step is to put melted butter on the dough, then sprinkle sugar and cinnamon.

Afterward, we folded the dough in half and then used a pizza cutter to slice it into strips. Once the strips are done, you just have to hold both ends and then twist.

After twisting the strips, we turned them into knots and placed them on a tray with a baking sheet. We waited for them to rise in a warm place for 1 hour before putting them in the oven.

Here’s the finished product! We dusted them with powdered sugar after baking.

They’re really tasty!

Swedish Meatballs is our second recipe. It’s a delectable bite-sized meal that is paired with savory gravy for a classic Swedish dish!

Active Kitchen Time: 30-40 minutes

Yiled: 4-6 servings

For this project, you’ll learn and practice the proper way of using kitchen tongs. Tongs are useful for moving hot food, serving or tossing salad, flipping food on the grill, and pulling hot food out of boiling water.

Aside from the ingredients and kitchen tools, this booklet also features some history about Vikings and a fact-finding activity!

Ingredients for Swedish meatballs include egg, milk, breadcrumbs, kosher salt, onion powder, allspice, lean ground beef, and lean ground pork.

First, we mixed the eggs, milk, breadcrumbs, salt, onion powder, and allspice in a bowl. Then, we added ground beef and pork. After mixing them thoroughly, the next step is to shape meat into mini meatballs and then bake for 12 minutes.

Here, my daughter is making the gravy. She melted the butter on the skillet and then added flour. The next step is to add beef broth and salt then cook until thickened. When it’s already thick, turn off the heat and add the cream.

Lastly, add meatball using the tong!

They don’t just look good, they taste good as well.

Swedish meatballs can be eaten with jam or preserves!

The third recipe is Scandinavian Smorgasbord, a luscious Swedish buffet that features berries, potatoes, and sliced cucumbers!

At the back, there are Cook-Along tips to save time, prevent mistakes, and make cooking more fun and exciting!

Smorgasbord refers to a sandwich table. It’s a special Scandinavian meal that is served in buffet-style. For this, we need lemon, cranberries, sugar, and water to make Swedish Preserves. We also need English cucumber, apple cider vinegar, kosher salt, and sugar to make our own pickled cucumbers. Lastly, for dill potatoes, we need baby potatoes, kosher salt, small bunch dill, sour cream, and pepper.

This step-by-step procedure guide is so detailed and very informative. It makes preparing and cooking easier!

Here, my son is making pickled cucumbers! We cut the cucumbers in half and then grated them into thin slices. The thin slices were then marinated into a mixture of vinegar, salt, and sugar for 5 minutes before serving.

We also have some dill potatoes, so my son is making a dip! He stirred dill, sour cream, pepper, and salt.

We used baby potatoes for this one instead of slicing the big ones.

Here’s our smorgasbord, along with the Swedish meatballs!

If you are looking for a fun and exciting way to introduce your kids to cooking, this subscription makes a great choice. The recipe guide is well-detailed, and the step-by-step procedure was so easy to follow. There are even trivia which adds more fun to the whole process. We also love the bonus items, especially the apron and tong. Although there are no ingredients included in the box, they send you a shopping list so you can prepare the ingredients beforehand. The cooking activities in this box are great options for passing time productively. They also teach kids simple cooking skills that they can use in real life later on! All in all, this is a wonderful box and we’re excited about the future boxes!
