Recipe: So Easy (Even YOU Can't Mess it Up!) Homemade Bread

The first recipe I am going to share is for So Easy (Even YOU Can't Mess it Up!) Homemade Bread.  I was fortunate enough to be asked to appear on ABC 4 in Utah on their morning show Good Things Utah and on CW30 for The Daily Dish.  Doing a cooking segment on TV was one of the things on my "bucket list" and it was such a fun experience!  When I got there and started setting up, I couldn't find the bowl for their Kitchenaid mixer.  After searching high and low, an intern informed me that it had disappeared a while ago and no one knew were it was.  I think I almost died right there, I had no idea what to do without a mixer!  But with the help of my amazing Aunt Christine, we were able to find a big bowl and wooden spoon to make it the old-fashioned way!
I must have not done too bad, because they asked me to come back in June to do another recipe!  I am still deciding on what to make... but it's alright, I still have a few months!

Here is the link to the clip from each show.  I am sorry, I haven't figured out if I can post the actual video on here!  Some day I will be good at this blogging thing!

Hello Blog World!

I have decided to join the blog world!  I am not sure why, or what will come of it, but I am going to give it a try.  Here is where I will be posting my creations of all kinds. I am still learning how this all works, so pictures will come soon, but for now I haven't figured that all out yet!

I really enjoy cooking, so you will get to see the successes and failures in my kitchen.  Crafting is also one of my hobbies, so you will see all of my crazy project ideas.  Though, most of what I plan to post will be about Preschool.  I love teaching, it is in my blood.  As I come across ideas for my classroom I will be sharing them on here.  I hope they will be of some help to anyone with kids.  I am sharing the ideas to help you with your own children or the children in your classroom if you are a teacher, but please don't profit from my ideas.  Please give me credit if you share one on my ideas, just as I will be giving credit when I share another person's ideas with you.

Anything I make, I am happy to make again to sell.  Depending on what it is, I will sell the items as the pattern/supplies/tools for you to make yourself, or I will offer a completely finished product ready for you to use.  Everything I sell will be custom made after your purchase, so there will be a delay in shipping, please keep this in mind should you choose to order.  The benefit of this is that you can request custom colors, flavors, names, or what have you for your item.  As I figure out the ins and outs of blogging, any purchases will be worked out through email and completed via PayPal invoice.  My email is countrymunchkins@gmail.com.

In the future I plan on doing great giveaways, again, I just have to figure out blogging!
