{i cannot bake}

99e4d60f95b951aefaf4f999bf1b2dbd This graphic is so funny to me because I don’t bake.

I have a confession that many of you have already heard from me. I cannot bake. I mean I can bake {sort of} but I don’t like to. I’m terrible at it. I burn things or mess them up.

Baking requires measuring and precision with ingredients and perfect timing {I don’t posses such skills}. It just doesn’t work for me. I’m the type to buy store-bought, write a check or choose a really easy dessert when it comes to bringing something for the bake sale or a party.

It’s funny that as a mommy I feel completely obligated to teach my children to bake. My Grandma Lil baked anything and everything. My mom, sister, in-laws {and even my husband} are all good at baking. Shouldn’t I be passing on this skill? Isn’t that what stay-at-home mom’s do?

I do try to get the kids in the kitchen to bake from time to time but honestly I don’t enjoy it. I want to know what is wrong with me???? ahh hahh hah! I could cry.

Okay. Not really.

But seriously. Let’s hope that someday I can find the strength to use my brain in such a way. In the meantime…

Here are a few of my favorite no-bake desserts:

THESE coffee & ice cream floats are great…so is the FALL ice cream dessert

Pretzel Bites

Squirrel Mix {aka: Muddy Buddies}

And because you don’t have to measure perfectly I also love THESE anytime goodies!

Finally, notice that THESE tips for baking with kids mention to just have Daddy do it! That works for us!

What kind of recipes do you enjoy that don’t need baking skills?



your own little CANDYLAND

This link from my friend Jenny’s blog inspired me to make these in my little toaster oven because I needed a few treats for a project and only had a few candies left to spare.  I made a small batch (I won’t tell you how many I ended up eating myself) and enjoyed my latte in less than 30 minutes! These make the perfect afternoon goody, gift or late night snack!
Start with Kisses or Hugs, M&M’s & Pretzels.
Line a Pan and top the pretzels with the kisses or hugs.
Bake @ 200 for 6 minutes, place M&M’s on melted bites & allow to chill in the fridge.
If you are making this snack for yourself just add your favorite drink (mine is always coffee) and you will be in your own little CANDYLAND in no time. NO BOARD GAME REQUIRED!
