Adverntures in weekend baking
One of our favorite weekend activities is baking and cooking. This weekend, we made beef empanadas for a game night at our friends’ house. Dave’s dad and relatives are from Chile, so he was introduced to this food by his grandmother at an early age. This was our first time making empanadas at home, and like much of our cooking, it was a team effort: Rob made the dough and Dave made the filling. We’re happy to say they were a big success.
Most of our cooking experiments included baked deserts. In addition to the empanadas, we’ve recently made whiskey caramel cupcakes (for St. Patrick’s Day), blood orange pie, and Minnesota-themed sugar cookies for Christmas.
Both of our families taught us to cook at an early agem and we’d love to pass these skills and traditions down to our children.
