So....we got some snow.

I am not sure the kids know what to do with it.  They look kind of stumped. 
Anyway....

Here is my little helper!!!  I am so glad to have someone to help me make this cake.  She enjoys baking so much.  I will never need to think we won't have enough baked goods in the future.
So... here is our lemon cake:

This cake was so good!!  I can't wait to make it again.  Thanks Sarah for helping me.





Nothing better to do on a snow day then to bake!

WE HAVE SNOW!!!

We have snow and it is cold, white and just beautiful!  This is the first real snow this Winter.  My kids love it. Yesterday I let my boy stay home from school.  After lunch we went outside and played.  The kids made snow balls and snow angels.  We met up with some of the neighbor friends and they had a great time playing together.  Once everybody had bright rosy cheeks and frozen toes and fingers we went in for a nice cup of hot chocolate.  YUMMMY! 
Speaking of hot chocolate.  I found a great recipe on line for chocolate pudding.  It is homemade coco with some corn starch and cook it a little longer until it thickens.  The kids and my Hubby loved it.  Its easy and not too many ingredients.  No eggs to worry about scrambling. 
I know chocolate pudding is not exactly a Winter treat, but I guess I had a chocolate craving.
Talk again soon.
Now I need to bake something.  Any ideas?  Maybe a cake.
