There is still time to hop over to my guest post at Good Morning Girls where I give oodles of 30 minute clutter-busting ideas and where they are offering a book giveaway. Click here to see it. Don’t forget to come back for my weekend giveaway.
When my daughter Kenna was little, she and I loved to bake.
Michigan dried-cherry-cashew bars, lavender shortbread, whole wheat bread from fresh-ground wheat.
My baking buddy has been gone for nearly three years now. I’m left with only sons at home.
Two sons AND their many guy friends who mysteriously appear out of nowhere—especially when I’m cooking. I went to bed last night as the 14-year-old mancub was hanging out down at the creek with several neighborhood boys. This morning when I awoke, here is what I found:
When I went down to our finished basement/man cave, here is what else I found:
And this was only half of the boys who crashed here!
Wanting to be the home where teens hang out means having food around. Sure they love pizza rolls and chips and cheese. However, I find so many of the dozens of teens who have frequented our home over the years love homemade treats.
So, this weekend, why not try out a new recipe from my soon-to-be co-author and good friend LeAnn Rice of She Cooks. I am making it today. (Got up this morning and realized I let the mancub buy too many peaches at the market. Then, I saw her recipe for peach cobbler bars here. Yum!)
