Magically Delicious

27 Feb

Sundays are the best days.  They are the only days we have together, all three of us.  We started it with homemade blueberry pancakes.  I make a double batch and freeze the extras.  They’re great warmed up.  Sorry, no pictures, I’m not at my best in the mornings!

Next up, Grace and I made Apple Pie Cookies!  Oh my goodness, they are delicious!  We didn’t make any changes, unless you count G dumping sugar over some of them.  They were crunchy and super fantastic.  The recipe was easy to follow, and not too terribly time consuming.  The cookies only need about 30 minutes to bake in our oven.  Plus, it’s great for little helpers.  G dunked the apple slices in the spices and “spinkled” sugar over them.  So wonderful!

 

For dinner, it was Buttermilk Roast Chicken.  Mixed the brine last night, and it smelled so good.  It smelled even better this morning.  This recipe was easy and so quick!  The chicken only takes 30 minutes to cook, which is good when there are hungry kids (and boys) involved.  Served it with mashed potatoes and gravy.  The chicken was moist and oh so flavorful.

Everything was absolutely yummy.  I love Smitten Kitchen’s recipes.  They are always fun and delicious.   Baking is one of my favorite hobbies.  I love making food that my family enjoys, but I especially love it when Grace is able to help me.  It’s great Mommy And Me time, and it makes her so happy to help.  G puts on her apron and chef’s hat and hops onto a chair.  Seeing her smile, hearing her laugh….nothing compares to that.  I hope she always want to bake with me.  Even when I’m old and lame!
