Daughters Deb and Kathie made date bread.
Suzy made the yeast bread dough.
|Oooooops! The mixer took off and sprayed the kitchen with flour, eggs and milk!|
|The yeast dough has risen to more than double its original size!|
|Gotta punch it down so it's workable.|
Granddaughter Renee made the basis of a snowman, using chocolate powder and chocolate chips instead of fruit as the filling.
Deb put together a candy cane pastry.
While the recipes came down from Rosalie Lauzon, Jerry's grandmother, and as they were recorded in our family cookbook published nearly 30 years ago, each part of the family has made incremental changes to suit their own tastes.
And this is today's output --
|Four yeast breads and three date bread loaves. Don't you wish you could be here for breakfast?|
