Our Family Baking Day

Baking is so much more fun when you do it with somebody. Especially special somebodies, like sisters and nieces at Christmas. We all met at my sister Lori's house to bake this past weekend. The week before, she suggested we send her the recipes we wanted to make and she would have all of the ingredients available for us. How great is that! This will give you a peak at what it's like to bake at Lori's house.

This basket and table had all the baking necessities

Italian Anise Cookies with Icing
Coal for the naughty kids

I didn't get pictures of everything. We also made peanut butter balls, rice crispy treats, sugar cookies. We almost had peanut brittle, but there was a little problem with the cook time which produced smoke coming out of the microwave and resulted in the "coal" you see above. I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple of things that were made. It was all fun! Especially the time spent with family! I love them all! 

Thanks Lori, for everything! Especially the memories!
