cookin' kuchen

We had a fun, snowed-in weekend with Miss Sweet Pea. She put the candles in her daddy's birthday cake (using her own unique decorating style), helped grandma decorate the tree, went on a toboggan ride with her daddy. helped grandma cook meals and bake cookies, and jumped on grandpa, among other things.

She also made kuchen (a German raisin bread) with grandma. This is a special holiday tradition in our home. Her grandma learned to make it from her grandma who learned from her mother. I don't know how far it goes back but Sweet Pea is the fifth generation of kuchen makers I personally have met.

The kuchen is good but the passing on of the tradition is even better.

Be blessed!
