Kids grow up so fast! Mine are no exception. Now that we are more settled into our home and life is more routine we asked our children to choose a extra-circular that they would like to participate in. L. choose Kenpo Karate and is loving it! S. on the other hand likes her time at home with the family and has had a very difficult time choosing an activity. Riding lessons, no too scary. Dance.. no apparently we had our fill of dance class. Piano...no think I'll pass.
So we decided not to push the subject and hoped she would come to a conclusion on her own.
Thursday on the way home from school S. told me that she would like to take cooking classes! Ok, cooking classes sound like a great idea.
This weekend my husband gave her a recipe for pumpkin cookies at http://verybestbaking.com/. She made the entire recipe herself ( with a little guidance from dad). Then frosted the cookies and made this absolutely delightful sign for the cookies. The cookies were delicious, soft, cake like and not too sweet.
* We changed the recipe slightly by adding 1/2 a stick more of butter and 1/3 cup of cream cheese to the frosting
