Farmhouse cooking class
We ventured to Montecito and Ojai again to join a cookie baking class this time. However, like many things these days, it was canceled. We didn't let that stop us from making cookies, of course (see below), or playing socially distanced outdoors and isolating in a rural, pretty change of scenery (beach, private arcade, art and golf classes included).
Gingerbread making for the holidays and royal frosting decorating never disappoints especially when someone gets to take a virtual baking class during middle school to follow along at home and make the dough ahead of time so it's all set chilling in the fridge when ready to make. We buy dark molasses once a year to stock our pantry just for this seasonal special occasion along with the yummy required spices: ginger, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon.
