Bread in a Bag

 The girls made bread this week.

 I was inspired when I came across a recipe for bread in a bag.

 They had so much fun!

 The bread only comes out of the bag at the end when it's time to knead it.

 We let it rest for 30 mins. and watched it rise.

Move over, Panera! :)

They were giddy about their bread.

We couldn't wait too much longer. We had to try it!

Everyone knows, I'm not a baker and I've always been intimidated with the thought of making bread myself but when I stumbled across this recipe, specifically designed for kids, it inspired me to give it a try.

The kids devoured it warm, drizzled with a little honey. I have to admit, it was pretty good.   

We typically don't eat white bread but I stuck to the original recipe on this one. Now, the girls want to try making different versions, like honey wheat, sourdough, and pumpkin spice.

Most importantly, they had so much FUN making the bread and the anticipation of how it was going to turn out was a blast! Today is the last day of school and I am SO looking forward to cooking more with the kids this summer!
