Baking Fun

Jonathan got me this wonderful mixer for Christmas. Doesn’t it remind you of the tail light of a ’60-something Chevy? I love it!

I also love that I’ve started making bread again, thanks to this strong reliable mixer and its dough hooks. I just can’t handle kneading bread, and this does the hard part while allow me to do the fun stuff. The above shot was on New Year’s Day. I was working on my “first” batch of bread while playing Apples to Apples Bible Edition with the boys.

Here’s my second batch of bread. Should’ve gotten it out a little earlier, but it is still very yummy.

Also yesterday, I brought Katie “alongside” and she helped me make this Cranberry Crunch for dessert. She really did most of the work, and it was such fun to do it together. She even let two of her siblings go ahead of her in line for computer time because she was enjoying her time in the kitchen so much (she and Grace also helped me make quiche for supper).

    Yummy dessert!I think I would make my bread more, too, if I didn't have to knead it. Such hard work, & after the car accident I was in a year ago, my wrists can't handle it quite as well.

    Sounds like so much fun! I need to work more on bringing Levi alongside, Paige gets/demands so much more time, it's not fair for Levi to miss out even if he doesn't seem to mind now. Thanks for the reminder!

    You're right, like a "sixties" tail light. How cool is that.

    Hehehe…I like all the whip topping on that last picture. 🙂 I think there might be more whip topping than cranberry crunch!
