Friday Family Bake Night #3 – Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Bake #3 brings us to our first bread – a whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread. No yeast, no kneading – just quite a bit of honey and applesauce (to sweeten), cinnamon and raisins, and, of course, all the bready stuff (flour, eggs, and co.)

Friday Family Bake Night (#2) – Strawberry Pie

For round two of our bake night, we decided to pick some strawberries together at a local farm and make a strawberry pie. While we were preparing it, we made a spontaneous decision to use the remaining strawberries to make jam as well. Trust us, it was an excellent decision.
