Finding activities to keep your middle-schoolers busy during the summer can be challenging. They are at that weird in-between stage when they’re too old to go to camp, but too young for a summer job. One of my favorite summertime activities with my younger daughter has always been baking. We started getting busy in the kitchen when she was little, like 3 years old little. It’s our favorite mommy and me time. Our specialty ~ cupcakes. As she grew our baking became more and more sophisticated. We amped up our equipment with all kinds of special cupcake baking tools. But, we also found that with each of our after baking tastings she was getting an upset tummy. We decided to remove dairy from her diet. Her stomach got better, but her sweet tooth started aching. Fortunately, we found So Delicious. We’ve been able to get very creative in the kitchen with all the products they have available and you can too. Plus with the featured recipe you don’t have to turn on the stove to make it, so your house will stay nice and cool during the coming hot summer months. The raspberry sparkling cider fizz dessert recipe featured in the video was crafted by Gail Davis.
