Not a recipe related post (well, unless mini chocolate bites made from leftovers counts), but one I wanted to share with you.
One of my (many) wonderful memories as a kid was cooking and baking with my mother and grandmother. It wasn’t about the food, necessarily (although getting to lick the beaters and bowl clean was a definite benefit), it was about time spent together.
Some of the best conversations I can remember with my mother (even the difficult ones) were had in the kitchen. Side by side, working together, I could casually drop a questions/comment/statement in and we’d talk about it.
As a mother of two sons, I want to carry this practice on. Not only will my boys gain valuable skills, but they’ll bring a lot to the table (no pun intended) if they can cook their future wives an amazing meal. I also want them to have similar memories that I had, and look back fondly and remember this time with me.
I love my sons so much, and as much as this is about them and their memories – it’s also about mine!
I had some leftover pie dough, and thought it would be fun for Hayden to use the cookie cutters, and cut out some shapes and bake them.
I also had enough to make a few mini chocolate bites (chocolate chips wrapped in pie dough, and baked), which went down a treat!
