Baking is as much a science as it is an art form. Combine flour, sugar, and eggs, add a little bit of heat, and voila! You have a tasty treat to enjoy with friends and family. One of my family’s favorite traditions around the holidays is to bake and build our own gingerbread houses, which is actually a great way to test your STEAM skills! If you’re feeling adventurous, check out this recipe from Food Network: Gingerbread House Recipe. If you’re still developing your baking skills, you can always find a gingerbread house kit in your local grocery store. Happy holiday eating!Read More →
