This recipe is so easy, it’s not even funny. And it’s a great recipe for kids to try. My two preschoolers loved this when we made pies this week. (You can smooth out the crust after letting them have a go at it. It’s what Gramma John always did.)
Baking with children is, indeed, a fun, family activity. I can vouch for it. We just survived an all-day baking frenzy, the kids and me.

Having wonderful baked goods is a beautiful thing. Stashing them in the freezer so that they are at the ready is even better. But, how you store them is pretty important. They won’t go bad, per se. Freezer burn won’t make you sick. It just tastes bad. And then, what’s the point? For most cakes […]
My boys were so helpful today. I am a blessed woman. Preparing mixes for pancakes, waffles, and scones. Chocolate Chip Cookies! Yum! Peeling apples for pie. Oh my! To see more blessings worth counting, visit Gratituesday.
And we haven’t got a ton more accomplished. This is proving to be a bigger balancing act than I expected. But, never say DIE! (Or whatever…) Still, we’re making progress: One pie is in the oven. Two more in the freezer. FishBoy11 mixed up the cranberry bread, and it joined the pie. The baguettes are […]
