Making bread with Hazel Nina

If you've never happened to visit Beth Fish Reads which hosts Weekend Cooking, here are the guidelines:

Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book reviews (novel, nonfiction), cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs, restaurant reviews, travel information, or fun food facts. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page.


For a few weeks I've been baking bread for Margaret, Matthew, and Hazel. It has been quite a hit with Miss Hazel. It is known as 'Nana bread' at their house. When we were taking care of her on Friday, I thought I'd let her make the bread with me. She thoroughly enjoyed herself, and brought it home. I told her we can call it 'Hazel bread.' I felt like I was part of a long line of grandmothers teaching the grandchild how to make bread. My heart was bursting with love.

  3. I am so looking forward to being able to do this too. She watched me making scones today and said, 'Cake!' and couldn't wait to eat them.

  5. Oh, how delightful. I can think of nothing better than to cook with children, and baking bread has to be the very best.
    I love baking and cooking with our Kezzie, and Ezra enjoys getting into the mix now as well. Someone did a post on a book that I just sent to our Kezzie for her birthday. "The Forest Feast for Kids" with simple vegetarian recipes kids can make on their own (but more fun with adults). I sent it along with some $$$ to go grocery shopping.

  12. Your grandchildren are so very lucky to have you and Tom in their lives. You are helping them to build a solid core of values and happy memories, as well as the unbeatable memory of the smell of just baked bread. x

  14. So wonderful. I can almost taste (and smell) those fresh-baked with love loaves. And can just imagine Hazel's smile of pride when she presented her own loaves to her mom and dad.
