#MyRocketShake Is Totally Kid Approved And Even Sneaks In Yummy Fruits! Red, White, and Blueberry- All American Shake! @JohnnyRockets

My Rocket Shake 
Red, White, and Blueberry- All American Shake
Is Totally Kid Approved and 
Even Sneaks In Yummy Fruits!
Recently I had the pleasure of dining with Johnny Rockets! During the luncheon we feasted on yummy-rific foods, watched a ketchup artist create works of art before our very eyes and for dessert we were able to create our own shake. What an awesome lunch! Johnny Rockets has been pretty much a staple in our family between the delicious burger choices, fries, shakes and more! 
It’s a great place to just gather with the family and friends- to eat, chat and laugh! 
Our family loves to spend kitchen time together and creating new dishes is pretty much a family affair. Of course we created a bunch of shakes during the past years, but for this contest we wanted to come up with something that our family loved and that also represented what Johnny Rockets means to us. We thought and thought. We thought about how we have visited Johnny Rockets and the one word that kept coming up over and over was America. It’s how we came up with the name of our shake:
“Red, White  and Blueberry-All American Shake”
Now that we had the name, we needed to make the shake to see if it lived up! It had to be good, no-it had to be great. As a mom, I was happy to sneak in those strawberries and blueberries. 
It’s a simple shake to make and I am happy to report a very yummy creation. I cannot believe we never came up with it before this, but I am sure glad we thought of it now. It’s a real keeper!
 We are so very proud of it. It’s especially awesome that September is National Shake Month!
 The kids love it and the parents love it, too. You can follow this simple recipe and enjoy it with your family and friends! Kid Approved! Parents Approved! Friends Approved! PS: Did I mention we were singing and dancing when the shakes were ready? If you have ever been to Johnny Rockets, you will know exactly what I mean!

My daughter dove into this shake the minute the photos were taken! She also adorned it with more strawberries and make it “her own”. I did end up making six more shakes for the rest of the family and friends visiting! Everyone agreed on how delicious it tasted! Yum! #MyRocketShake

Fresh Beat Band Is Touring In Your Town Soon!! Check Out Our Interview With Them! @NJPAC 8/29

Let’s Chat With Series
Let’s Chat With The Fresh Beat Band
Do you have a child? Then you probably know the Fresh Beat Band! You may even know some or all of the songs like I do and find yourself singing them subconsciously…or maybe even consciously. When my daughter heard that the Fresh Beats were heading to NJ PAC in Newark she was SO thrilled. She loves their episodes and music. What an energizing group. I could not wait to catch up with them and ask a few questions! I think you will love this interview. I know I did! We can’t wait to see the full show and check out their new song, Walk Like an Egyptian! There is even a new animated show in the works! Yay!

Diane: What’s your favorite episode? Please don’t say all of them, we all have a favorite.
Yvette: We had some good ones, but I think my favorite episode was The Wizard of Song. I got to play the Tin Woman, which was really fun! They transformed the park at Paramount Studios and we got the pleasure of having the amazing Sarah Chalke and Jason Mraz as guests, who were so great to work with!

Diane: This one is from my daughter Emily.
KiKi, How long have you been playing the guitar? What age did you start taking lessons?
Yvette:  I have been playing guitar for about 6 years now.  Initially, a friend of mine taught me a few chords and then I was self-taught for a while before I started taking lessons. I actually learned violin first. I started taking lessons when I was three!

Diane: Tell me about the new Walk Like an Egyptian song!!!
Yvette: We have a new single out right now! It’s our version of “Walk Like An Egyptian”. The song will be in one of the upcoming episodes of our new animated show “The Fresh Beat Band of Spies” coming out next year!

Diane: What’s your favorite part of being in The Fresh Beat Band?
 Tara: Being a part of the Fresh Beat Band is such a blessing, it’s such a special show. I love hearing that kids are asking for musical instruments for their birthday presents and drum lessons for Christmas! Music also has such an impact on children with special needs. We’ve met children who had trouble walking but learned to dance to our music. Children who weren’t supposed to be able to speak but can sing along with us, being a part of something that in any way has that sort of impact is incredibly humbling and gratifying.
Diane: How is being on the road touring different than taping an episode?
 Tara: Well sleeping in my own bed for one! We travel the country in a bus, a nice bus, but it’s still a bus! It’s funny because my co-stars became even more like siblings on the road. The touring part is actually harder because it’s 6 days a week 100% full out energy for 3 hours. From the beginning of the show to the very last family at the meet and greet we’re giving our all. Filming a TV show is a long day – but we have a lot of fun on set.
Diane: What’s coming up for The Fresh Beat Band in the future? Working on anything we want to know about?
 Tara: We’re recording the voices and new songs for a brand new cartoon for 2015! It’s so fun and we’re working with some AMAZING people for it. We can’t wait for everyone to see The Fresh Beat Band of Spies!

Thanks for the awesome interview, Fresh Beats! Thanks for keeping all the kids and parents happy, entertained and singing! We love you!
