A few weeks ago, The Momma and I got together for our First Annual Baking and Beer Day. I love to cook, but baking isn't really my thing. See, my sissy-in-law is the family baker, so I never ever even consider baking. The Momma takes pride in the fact that she's taught me how to cook well, but truthfully I think she's a little embarrassed that I truly stink at baking. Thus she created a Baking Day (I think the beer portion of the day was just to ensure I'd actually show up). I learned alot. Here are the highlights of the day.
The typical Michigan mitten map and a dot so you know where I'm at.
The Earth cookie. Easily the most exciting creation of the day. In my humble opinion anyway ;-)
All in all, the day went great. We made fudge, brittle (holy good lord it was amazing), sugar cookies and o-ke-doke carmel corn.
Our new tradition should have me baking on my own in no time!
I hope you're setting time aside for the special people in your life this time of year.
