Making Mothers Day Cards with my kids! (should have done this weeks ago) oops!


Baking: I found some really retro cookbooks to get recipes from to try out something new but old. Here are the recipes I chose to make. Because its mothers day I am going to do it the shorter/lazy way and just take pictures of the first recipe right out of the book. Less typing for me, great recipes for you. It is a win-win situation!
 



These muffins were so delicious! They are so simple and just fantastic! 






 This recipe has to be typed its impossible to see in the photos, so here you are. Marmalade loaf:

1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Tbsp Butter
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Marmalade
1/2 Cup Milk
1 1/2 Cup Flour
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp. Salt  

Beat sugar, butter and egg until creamy. Add the rest of the ingredients and place in a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 40 mins.
