Rainy Day Bread!

One thing I love is rainy days! And what isn't better than Hot bread on those kind of days! So, Steven has been on a baking kick these last few weeks. He discovered a web site with recipes using non other than whole wheat flour. So, he made this bread recipe, and it was delicious! So, tonight since it was raining all the children convinced him that he needed to make his bread. (this is a tradition here at home, making bread on rainy days) He also made "The best chocolate chip cookies ever" recipe, and "Oatmeal cookies" using whole wheat flour. They are both Winners!! We hope he keeps "practicing" on us!

Popcorn Anyone?

The other night a friend of mine dropped by unexpectantly. She had seen Stacie post pictures of her new cupcake on Facebook. She wanted to be a taster! She introduced me to this new site called Bakerella. It is a great site. There is a delicious looking recipe for Smores cupcakes that we have to try. I especially like to look at the blogs they love to visit. So, tonight, I came across this recipe Spicy Peanut Butter Popcorn. Doesn't that sound wonderful? And Guess what? It taste great too! It just has a hint of spice. (even my 4 year old didn't say anthing) I have Loved Popcorn since I was young. We would pop it every Sunday night, and eat it while we watched "Wonderful World of Disney". (aaah...yes, that dates me doesn't it?) Since then I have come to enjoy many different varieties of popcorn. You'll probably have all the ingredients for this new recipe in your pantry. Try it out, and tell me what you think? What is your favorite kind of Popcorn?!?
