It’s Baking Week!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 13, 2009 @ 10:05 am In Baking | 3 Comments


I don’t know about your family, but mine is hungry 24/7. Not 30 minutes pass after dinner before someone asks, “What can I have to eat, Mama?” The good thing is that they are active, healthy children and they have the appetites to prove it. Since my oldest four are all boys, I anticipate that our need for ready meals and snacks is only going to increase through the years.

As we use up what we have [5], we’re clearing space in the freezer. That leaves us room to fill it with all kinds of baked goods. Cooking ahead [6] is great, but baking ahead is even better. I dunno…. maple-oat scone [7] or beans [8] and rice? Which would you choose?

So, this week is baking week for the FishFam, and as a result, for LifeasMOM [9]. I’ve got all sorts of recipes, tips, tricks, and giveaways for baking up a storm. Here’s a sampling of good things to come:

** Win a child’s apron [10].

** Read along on Tuesday as the FishKids and I live blog and tweet [11] our baking day.

** A homemade baguette tutorial

** Time for a Chocolate Chip Cookie throwdown. See for yourself if a recipe from Land O’ Lakes can beat my own Gramma John’s Blue Ribbon recipe.

** Ultimate Recipe Swap [12]: Share Your Family’s Favorite Cookie

** Enter for a chance to win free butter from Land O’ Lakes [13].

** Reviews on good baking books and gadgets

** And don’t forget to visit the Virtual Great American Bake Sale [14]

I hope you’ll join us!
