Sophie and Fynn love to bake. With me at work each day during the week, it is hard to get in any baking time, but the weekends are good for this activity since we have the extra time without the pressures of the daily schedule. They learn about measuring, counting, telling time, science and having a bit of patience since baking isn't instant gratification.
I pulled up a picture of the last time we made brownies (2009!) and I used a mix. They are so easy it really is a shame to use a mix. Today we made them from scratch using the 101 Brownie Recipes book that my sister-in-law Joanne got me several years ago. It is a great book and we always go back to the basic brownies recipe since they turn out perfectly each time.
