Homemade Bread

When I was little, my grandma used to bake homemade bread everytime we went to visit. It always tasted so much better than store bought, and we would eat it all before we left for home. As we got older, she didn't make it quite as much, but I still always think of her whenever I think about homemade bread.

Not too long ago, someone came across her recipe, and I decided to give it a try. I had never made bread before, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. While I was wondering "Is this enough flour?" and "Should the dough be this sticky?", I was wishing that I would have gotten lessons from my grandma. But in the end, even though I couldn't find exactly the right flour, and even though one of the loaves turned out oddly misshapped, and even though it didn't taste quite the same as the bread Grandmommy used to make, I still think it turned out pretty great!

Baby Shower Treats

My mom hosted a baby shower (for twins!) last weekend, and of course, she roped my sister and I into planning the decorations and treats. My sister made the sweet little flags and sign for the door and I made the cake pops for favors. So cute!
