We have been baking more than ever before. I know like a most families, when we were finally able to get flour again, we tried to come up with as many fun and different ways to use it. Not just for regular cakes and cookies.
It has also helped break up screen time on days that are crazy hot in South Florida. You will find I make sure the kids help me in the kitchen as much as possible. It is great with fractions, measurements and simply reading and following directions.
I leave everything out on the counter, my older son tends to read the directions and do the measurements and my younger son loves mixing and sorting out wet and dry ingredients.
This was the first recipe I used my sourdough starter discards. I know that sounds a bit scary and it still kinda is, as I am learning how to take care of and grow my sourdough starter. I was totally inspired by Little Spoon Farm’s Blueberry Crumble recipe, so she gets all of the credit for this. Make sure to check out her step by step instructions.
I didn’t have blueberries though so substituted raspberries. I also threw in white chocolate chips because… why not???
I don’t want to say this was the absolute best muffin I’ve ever had… but for sure, it was. I honestly believe the sourdough made all of the difference.
Now the bad part of baking so much is that I have to give most of it away or I will sit and eat it all day. 🙂 I think my boys are the only kids that aren’t crazy about homemade treats. They love making them but not so much eating them.
I wonder how our new neighbors will feel about their “Welcome to the Neighborhood” treat delivery.
I’ve known my husband for over 10 years and for some reason this weekend when I said I was going to make Lemon-Lime Truffles he informed me he doesn’t like lemon desserts….huh??? You’ve got to be kidding me.
So instead of Lemon-Lime Cookie Balls I told him I was making Lime Cookie Balls.
Did you forget today was Star Wars Day? Do you completely forget to plan for it? No worries! This is so simple, your 7 year old can do it. All you need are marshmallows, caramel and cereal. I’m quite certain any Chewbacca colored cereal will work. Don’t stress if it isn’t Cocoa Krispies.
I have no idea what made me think of this recipe. It is one of those things that I know I made in Home Ec ages ago and loved… but isn’t something I think I have ever made since.
Sidenote: is there still a such thing as Home Ec?
One of my favorite parts about this “salad”, I use that word loosely, is the crunch on top. Normally in the past I would have used Doritos… but since discovering Fit Crunch Protein Puffs, I have fallen in love with them and the protein they offer. They are the perfect compliment to this meal.
So after we built our fire pit in the back yard I was trying to come up with new and different ideas for foods to make over the fire. I have to give credit to this idea to my friend Laura who is currently camping across the country this summer. I saw this on her Instastories and knew I needed to make this on our recent stay on the farm. Continue reading “Campfire Eclairs – Perfect for Your Kids to Make”→
