Am I ready for this? Heck no! Are we gonna' have fun? You betcha'!
Every year for the last - oh - 13 or so years, we have had a baking day/weekend extravaganza. I open up the Lodge kitchen to our kids and their/our friends for a huge cookie/treat baking marathon. That's what it has turned into - a marathon. Everyone brings an assortment of recipes and most of their own ingredients, and then my big kitchen and cookery get put to use, and it is a huge amount of fun, I get to see lots of new ideas and a tremendous amount of goodies spew forth, until both big tables are covered with entice-ables.
Wish me luck, keeping my sanity. I'm getting better (with age) at not being quite so anal about how things are done in MY kitchen ... but it's tough! Watch for GunDiva's blogs, complete with pics.
