Mom to the Rescue

Do you ever wish there were more hours in the day? It always seems like I’m running around trying to get things done, whether its housework, helping the kids with homework or shuttling them to and from activities. Let’s not forget work, too! Somehow I manage to squeeze it all in. There are days when I feel like super mom! I often wonder whether I’ll have enough time to do it all. Time is a finite resource and I try to make the most of the hours in the day to get as much done as I can.

One of my passions is baking and I love spending hours in the kitchen creating delicious baked treats from scratch. Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen very often because carving out that many hours isn’t feasible these days. However, my family loves home-baked desserts and I’ve discovered the next best thing: Robin Hood Baking Mixes!

Not only are they quick to prepare, but they also have the homemade taste my family loves. Plus, they’ve helped me in a pinch! My daughter, Olivia, complained that she didn’t have any “good” snacks to take in her lunch. Unfortunately, she was right. I needed to get groceries and pick up snacks for their lunches. I was almost ready to open my wallet and give her money for the cafeteria when I remembered the Robin Hood Baking Mixes in the pantry.

With Robin Hood Baking Mixes, you can go from box to oven in just five minutes. Seriously. I made her the Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread and all I needed was two eggs, oil and water. Easy peasy!

The bread baked for about 55 minutes in the oven while Olivia was showering and getting ready for school. It was cooled and ready by the time she had to leave to catch the bus. I wrapped her up a couple slices and gave her a kiss good-bye.

Then I made myself a coffee and cut a small slice to eat for breakfast. It was delicious! I especially loved the crumbly sweet brown sugar and cinnamon topping.

When Olivia came home from school, she told me how good the bread was and asked how I made it so quickly. I gave her a wink and said I’d show her later. I guess this is another case of mom to the rescue.
