I am NOT tired of my kids, nor am I tired of summer. I just want to get that straight.

What I AM tired of is not being able to cook without extreme guilt over how high our electric bills have been this summer. (Or sweltering if I turn off the a/c in order to cook.) I love to cook. I love to bake. The girls are so into it too…evidence:

Rosemary Peasant Bread, made by my seven year old. She rocks, as does the bread.

But DUDE. I keep trying to wait until late at night to bake (when I’m naturally more productive) but for some reason, for the last few weeks our house has been SO. flipping. HOT ’round the clock…even with all the doors and windows open.

So I’m extra-looking-forward to fall this year, because I want to be able to cook whenever.



  1. Awwww – I didn’t mean to bump you sis! I totally didn’t see your post – and thought we really needed something new up – so I did my post. Anyhoo – the bread looks great – did the girls actually eat the bread she made???

  2. No worries — I actually timestamped mine so it wouldn’t bump yours, lol

    And yes, we ate the bread — it is fantastic! She made it when we had friends over for a playdate a few weeks ago and everyone inhaled it in less than 15 minutes. Last week I used it as pizza dough — a little challenging to shape because it’s gooey, but wow, so tasty!!
