libby's bake shop

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

What do you do when your kids want to bake cookies (or they want you to bake them cookies!) and you haven't been to the grocery store AND you are out of sugar AND only have one stick of butter? (Say it isn't so!... That reminds me of one of my favorite memories.  One day, we had a bunch of kids over and one of the girls is digging in the refrigerator and announces, "Mrs. Friend has 9 sticks of butter!" Ha!  Loved that moment.)
You pull out the box of cupcake mix tucked deep in your pantry.
You put on your sous chef hat, organize the ingredients, and then put the kids in charge. 
Andrew put Libby in charge.   She was perfectly okay with that.  
 And then Libby went to work on the mixing and it reminded me of the times she had her cooking channel in middle school.  She would close the kitchen doors and start talking and baking away.  It was the cutest.  (Did I mention she is going to College in a few short weeks?  AGH!)
 Libby used to make sure no one came in the kitchen, getting upset when the boys would torment her.  
I highly recommend keeping an emergency box in your kitchen. (I purchased this box from Target.) They didn't look exactly like the photo on the box, Libby's were way cuter. ;)  And, they were delicious!
