A Day of Baking

I'm definitely not a great cook...I normally cook meals that take the least amount of time, so I can get out of the kitchen as quickly as possible. Today, though, I broke a new record. Bella and I (and sometimes Jack, although he was more interested in eating the ingredients than helping to prepare them!) made three types of Christmas goodies, and I prepared the shish kebobs we're barbequing tomorrow night for the get together at our house. I'm pretty proud of the outcome and especially the fact that I was working in my kitchen from about 10:00-5:00 with one or two breaks in between. Bella had a lot of fun, and hopefully we will keep this up every year...and maybe even move on to more creative goodies than Rice Krispy Wreaths, Peanut Butter Blossoms, and Oreo Balls!

Half of my shish kebobs...those suckers take forever!

Bella with all of the goodies!

Jack helping with...err...eating the chocolate!

Go Betty Crocker! I'm not much of a cooker, but I know what you mean when you say it is rewarding to do so. LOL.

PS...thanks for putting up McKenna's chipin widget! :)

Yummy Yummy!! I'm so not a cook or baker, either. I get really frustrated with how incompetent I am in the kitchen. LOL!
