Being a full time wife, mom and employee can be tricky at times but if you make the time for the things you love you can make it all work. This took me a while to figure out but once I did, my life was so much happier. I have found for me to be happy I must be creating something. I like to bake and bring the goodies to work (Costco) and hear all the compliments. A lot of times people will ask me how I have time to bake all the time. My answer is easy, I enjoy baking so I make the time to do it.
I love baking with my two children. It is great to watch my 3 year old scoop the flour and level it off with a knife. My 2 year old gladly volunteers to lick the beaters and scrape the bowl when we are done. I like teaching my kids and watching them figure it out. It is simple to show them that a few ingredients can turn into something delicious. It's quality time that I love.
Here are a few of our favorites:
