Yes, I still have a lot of opened flour packets; a few more days of baking I guess. ;-)
We discussed why baking together is good for our family and overall, "a good thing".
***We learn to serve each other
***We appreciate each other more
***We learn to serve others
***We learn new skills
***We learn to let others help us
***We learn to be more flexible
***We learn from each other
***We also learned that baking together means being together which means serving each other therefore serving God.
Mosiah 2:17 (Book of Mormon)
"And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God."
Cooking With Your Kids blog:
"You don't have to be Martha Stewart to share fun experiences with your kids that yield delicious results."
"As soon as you preheat your oven and get out the butter and sugar, your kids know they're in for a treat. But if you enlist their help the next time you're in the mood to bake, they'll have as much fun mixing ingredients as they do munching on the sweet results — and so will you!"
This is what we baked together:
1 1/2 cups Clabber Baking mix
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup sugar
6 strawberries diced
1 tsp sugar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Sift flour and sugar
Make a dibit and pour in milk
Slowly mix in diced strawberries and dough until it looks well blended and close to biscuit batter consistency
Put in shallow flat pan or a tart pan
Line top with sliced strawberries and blackberries
Mix some water with egg white and brush berries with it
Sprinkle 1 tsp sugar on the top of tart
Bake for 10 minutes or until top is golden brown
Serve with Great Divide ice cream. Yum!
