December 6

I was so happy when my friend Kacy invited us to join her family to make peppernuts this year and even more happy when we actually found a time to make it work. By the numbers: 3 families, 12 kids, 12 1/2 cups of flour (that’s a half batch), thousands of peppernuts. Okay, not that many, but it really does make a lot.

The kids’ interest ebbed and flowed, but their knock-you-out adorableness remained steady throughout the evening.
