|American-style Pumpernickel, possibly the best |
bread-machine bread ever.
My older boys are 3 and 5, which seems a bit young to start cooking, but lately they've been hanging around the kitchen, asking me about what I'm doing, so I figured it was time to start a little 'Home Ec.' (They've also asked me to teach them how to sew and knit, how cool is that? I'm such a lucky mom.)
My kids were so excited, they could hardly wait the 3 hours it took for the bread to rise and bake. The bread was ready for dinner and was devoured pretty quickly -- my oldest son said it was too soft and made me toast it, but otherwise, there were no complaints!
The next day, we made country biscuits, using my Star Biscuit recipe (which can easily be adapted into scones, by the way -- we made orange-raisin scones last night). A friend of mine sent us some Cars 2 cookie cutters (my kids love Cars), so we used them and then had a great laugh eating the characters after they were finished baking.
