She can bake!

My hubby and I arrived home the other day to find that our 11-year-old granddaughter had baked up a storm while we were out.  She has been helping me cook and bake for many years, and knows her way around my kitchen pretty well by this point.  So, when she took the notion to bake something, she looked through my cookbooks and found this recipe: Triple Chocolate Quick Bread.

Then, she located the right size of loaf pans (a size I hardly ever use!) and made sure she had all the ingredients that would be needed.  When we came in, four lovely loaves of bread were cooling on a rack and the house smelled fantastic.  And was that chocolate bread ever good.  My hubby ate most of a smallish loaf within a couple of hours.  This girl can bake!


  1. Wow! She sounds like just the gal to have around. What fun!

    I am sure that you could write the winning essay, but you're not crazy either! =D

  2. She is a handy girl indeed, Vee! She cleans up after herself, too!

    And you're right about the essay contest too -- I'm not crazy either.

  3. Hi! I just found your site and love it! The bread looks wonderful! What a blessing to come home to!

  4. Welcome, Kathy!!!

    I am so glad you found your way to my kitchen table! Please stay awhile and browse the archives as you have time. There's a lot that might interest you!

    Yes, the bread was delicious. She took 2 loaves home with her and left the other 2 here. There is only part of one loaf left!

  5. Nice to know that the things you have taught her have taken root!! Sounds yummy!

    That is so neat! :) Her parents must have been happy too.

  7. Hi ladies!

    Yes, it is really fun to see. She has helped in the kitchen for years and so really knows her way around. Just in the past few weeks though, she has wanted to bake on her own. I don't mind a bit!
