Julia is old enough now to help me bake in the kitchen.

It is so fun to have her with me this holiday really helping!  She loves to see what comes out of the oven when we are all done.

For me, it makes it so much more fun and much less of a chore.

We both love to have a big glass of cold milk and something warm and yummy after our hard work.

I was brainstorming on what recipe to make for a party this weekend, and called mom to help me remember how to bake grandma’s salted carmel pecan cookies.   So often I call her in the grocery store.  She knows exactly what boxes look like and how to help me find exactly what I need.

Julia had a nut allergy when she was little.  Thank goodness she has completely outgrown it; however, she still cannot stand to even taste nuts.

Mom helped me decide to substitute chocolate chips for the pecans – easy!

I called her back shortly because they didn’t have the carmel that I was looking for.  We decided to substitue butterscotch chips.

When I got home from Smart & Final, Julia was thrilled with the choices. (And very thankful I had found something to substitute for the pecans).

The butterscotch chips were aboslutely yummy.
