Baking Day – The Plan

I probably have higher expectations than are reasonable for our baking day today. I prefer to aim high in most things. But, we’ll see how much is reasonable for baking up a storm with six children helping.

Here’s our agenda for the day:

— Gramma John’s Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies
— Land O’ Lakes’ Chewy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies
— Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
— Baguettes
— Calzone Dough
— Cranberry Bread
Apple Pies (one to bake – one to freeze)
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Mixes for pancakes, waffles, and Maple-Oat Scones

Check back later to see how we do. You can also follow along on twitter: fishmama. Recipes to follow as well.

  1. Yummy! I would love to have the recipe for the cranberry bread. I just found some dried cranberries at Kroger (love those yellow & organge sale tags!), and I'm not sure what to do with them. Have a great baking day!

  2. Phoebe @ Cents to Get Debt Free says:

    Good Luck! I hope you get it all done. I hope to do a baking day later this week.

    I love Chocolate Zuchinni Cake–one of my favorites from my childhood.

  3. Jen@Balancing Beauty and Bedlam says:

    Oh yes – you have set the standard high, my friend. 🙂 I would love to join in today but not sure if I can squeeze it in. You and Crystle have inspired me to try. 🙂

  4. Christian Frugal Mama says:

    Wow. YOu definitely have some motivation and high hopes. Good luck in getting it all done!

  5. Sounds like fun! Do you have any tips for your execution of the recipes? Do you do one at a time, or do you measure all like ingredients at the same time? Do you have to start with the recipe with the lowest baking temp and work your way up? Do you have to stop and wash things like mixing bowls and beaters or do you have enough tools to do it all? I usually find myself getting slowed down by these other tasks. i would love any tips you have to streamline the process! Thanks for sharing your baking day with us!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.
