I Caught the Baking Bug


One of the things I love about autumn and winter is catching the baking bug. It is one of those many instances where I wish I were a stay at home mom so I could do it more. Anyway, the girls and I have decided that every Friday for the next few months will be baking day. Last week Serenity and I made up our own recipe of chocolate peanut butter spiral cookies. It was a lot of work but they turned out purdy good. This week Cadence got in on the act too. She made brownies with white chocolate chips. Serenity made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I helped both girls, but really they did the majority of the work. We did it all from scratch and by hand too. No mixers, no short-cuts. I figure if they learn these things first the old fashioned way, then when they use modern tools it will be that much easier and they can be confident in their knowledge and skill. They are both learning really well and we have fun dancing to the radio while we are together in the kitchen.

Well we are sure grateful you've caught the baking bug because we are reaping all the benifits. Thanks for the new batch of cookies for the week when you came by Friday night. It's so fun living by you guys again.

What's on the menu this Friday? I hope everyone is feeling better in both our families so we can play again soon (like around Friday or shortly thereafter).

Hey Hullo - we only live 10 mins away from Seth and Kaka and Eran has Fridays off too - when do we get to come play, and eat cookies?

yum...I'm coming over on Fridays. Are you going share these recipes, or are they family secrets?

Ugh. You have to remodel that kitchen. Those beauty girls and beauty treats deserve a better frame.
