For most of the winter Lola and I have kept up our baking Sunday challenge. We are slowly working our way through the best cookbook ever, Flour. We have made a number of amazing treats and Lola really enjoys that she gets to help and be an active part of the baking process. I have picked up a number of instruments that make baking more interactive for her and at the same time allows us to make an an outstanding treat.
It is a terribly messy process and I am continually fighting to keep her from eating all the dough or mix before I can make it, but I love it and I love that we do it together.
It makes us both so happy! Baking is one of those things that I imagined I would do with my children long before I ever considered having kids. It is like a really messy dream come true!
