I’ve watched a couple more episodes of Leave it to Beaver, and June is really something. She’s always in the kitchen preparing something fabulous. I’ve never seen the Cleaver family at dinner without dessert! Oh the life. My tip today for harnessing your inner ‘June’ is two fold — baking and aprons. Let me just say I LOVE APRONS. I have 4, and one just for Christmas time…the problem is I hardly ever wear them. I just admire them hanging in the closet as I throw something away, or grab the broom. So I’ve made a promise to myself to wear an apron everyday. If you don’t have an apron take a look at this Indianapolis based company, CutieCooks, and their adorable aprons! http://www.etsy.com/shop/cutiecooks
Here’s my fav apron, a wonderful wedding gift:
Now to baking…and from scratch. I think new brides don’t bake enough. We have pre-made cookie dough and ‘no bake’ desserts. It makes our lives so easy, but baking is a lost art! The goal of daily baking seems a little much, so I’m committing to once a week. This week I made banana bread. I googled ‘easy banana bread’ and voila! Over 10 million results! All June has is her latest edition of the Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. So yesterday I put on my apron, and tackled banana bread. Delish! One more difference between June and I – I was following the recipe off the screen of my MacBook Pro.
