Blizzard baking

My lofty February goal is to go through a few (purposely vague is good) old magazines lurking in dusty corners. We'll try out a few ideas that inspire, with reviews to follow here. The rest I will rid myself of forever.

The only exception being my Martha Stewart Kids magazines. Those are pure gold. I'll hang on to them for a little longer.
























We attempted homemade pretzels today from the September/October 2004 issue. A good activity for kids warming up from cold snow play. The boys were happy to help with rolling out the dough and brushing on the topping. We made four salty pretzels and four with a sugar cinnamon mix. They were excellent.

One of my favorite childhood memories is making pretzels over at Aunt Viv's house. I can still taste them, fresh out of the oven. Mmmm!

Darren, Keith said almost the exact same thing when he walked into the kitchen and saw the pretzels.

How many more ways can I find to say "Amazing!" How about, "Same planet, different worlds" : ) You always impress me with the things you choose, intentionally, purposefully, to do with your kids. They are much luckier than they know : ) Keep up the good memory-making!
