'Tis the season for homemade Giggle bread

I am thankful that another one of my daughter's has inherited my love for baking.
She could be totally absorbed playing with her dolls but if she hears me puttering around the kitchen she is beside me wanting to "help momma" with whatever I am doing.
Niffy nunu and I are scheduling a Christmas baking day for later on next week so I am sure we will have at least another set of hands helping us!
Actually, Giggle's baked this yesterday afternoon when the "bread Lady" visited her kindergarten class.
The aroma of this bread was enough to make me want to pull the van over and rip it apart right then and there but she wanted to save it for breakfast this morning.
**sigh** It was quite delicious but there is just something about fresh bread from the oven!
But, don't take my word for it.
You should try it too...
