February is Bake for Family Fun Month & Cinnamon-Sugar, Soft Pumpkin Pretzels!

I know around this grandma's house baking is something we enjoy and definitely have fun as a family doing together! Just this past Friday my three grandsons helped me make cookies for their momma's birthday party . . . even little Shane (1 1/2 years old) got in on the "helping" . . . well, at least he helped taste and when he did, he said, "Yum! Yum, yum yum!!!!" Apparently he approved!

I grew up in a family of bakers/cooks. My mom, grandmas and aunts all knew how to bake/cook and family get-togethers meant there would definitely be no shortage of tasty food! I actually live in the house my grandparents had built in the late 1920's - my dad was born in this house! I remember having sleepovers here as a child and remember my grandma baking homemade bread . . . she always sliced it fresh from the oven and gave me a piece with Peter Pan Peanut butter on it . . . even now I remember how delicious it tasted! 

So, when my grandsons have sleepovers here, I have years of memories of sleepovers with grandparents in this house! My grandsons are growing up with memories of baking and time spent with grandparents on sleepovers here and this makes me very happy! 

I think a month to focus on baking with family is definitely something fun we can do! Of course, with my grandsons, our favorite things to bake together are cookies, cake and any kind of bread! We made homemade cinnamon-sugar, soft pumpkin pretzels last Fall and I plan to have them help me make them again - probably this next weekend. I shared the recipe with you when the boys and I made them last fall - you will find it at this link. Enjoy!

What do you like to bake with your grandchildren?
