Baking Day

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

If you visit my blog often, or even once in awhile, you will quickly notice that I LOVE to bake. I have said it before, and will probably will say it tons more, I would bake all day, everyday, if I could. And I got my chance last Saturday, well at least, part of the day (12 – 5:30)

With the boys back in school, I wanted to bake some breakfast snacks that they could grab and go, since we leave the house at 7 a.m. to take them to school.

Even though I spent 5 1/2 hours baking, I got a lot done.  I find it easier to do lots of baking at one time.

  1. All of the ingredients are out
  2. The measuring cups are already dirty
  3. The oven is preheated
  4. The kitchen is a mess, so why not get lots done
  5. It frees up time during the week

One of the new tasks that I tried this time was having a tub of hot, soapy water in the sink to throw the dirty utensils in. It worked great and made clean up much quicker.

    I do this once a week. For about 3 hours my girls and I do all the baking for the week. We Make 3 loaves of sandwich bread, 4 sourdough artisan loaves, prep and refrigerate dough for 14 more loaves to bake later in the week, 8 dozen muffins, and several desserts. I also try to get several dinners and lunches prepped so they just have to be cooked or warmed for the week.

    I only make the mess once. I only heat up the kitchen once and I am so grateful when the week gets crazy that I have nutritious stuff ready to go.
