Baking Shortcuts | Slacker Mom’s Guide to Baking | MomCave
For the love of all that is holy, WHY is baking a staple of the already chaotic, labor-intensive holiday season? Can’t a mama get a break?
We asked some of our friends on the “internets” for their favorite tips. Read what they had to say below and then WATCH the hilarious video we made on a fun girl’s weekend away!
- Baking is actually one of the few things I don’t slack off on too much, as I try to make everything from scratch. What I will say though is, don’t sweat it if you are not creative. There’s no shame in just following the recipe you found online or on the back of a bag of chocolate chips. The way I see it, someone else took the time to get it right. Reap the rewards for their effort! Gail Hoffer-Loibl, Maybe I’ll Shower Today
- My baking technique involves paying someone else to bake for me. AKA the local bakery. I’m only sort of kidding. What I actually tend to do is wait until the kids are asleep and do it myself, so that it’s not as messy, and also so that I don’t have to share licking the bowl, hahaha.

And yes, we ate all of the treats immediately after. This episode was made possible by a grant from the town of Dover, VT. We spent a weekend (sans husband and kids!) shooting a bunch of Slacker Moms. Here are some Behind the Scenes stills from our shoot in Dover, Vermont:
