Baking and Aprons

In Uncategorized on July 27, 2010 at 9:29 PM

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.

  1. It is so funny that you posted this. I actually got a new half apron today that is from Disney World. It is a “minnie mouse” inspired apron with white polka dots and ruffles around it. Super cute, but as I showed my friends at work, they seemed confused as to why I would want an apron :). So this blog really applied!!

  2. I saw where Dusty “promoted” your blog on facebook. I love it! It’s funny because yesterday I stumbled upon 50shousewife.blogspot.com and am looking forward to keeping up with both of your blogs! I wish we all were still like the 50s housewives…almost like Bree from Desperate Housewives! 🙂
