something to celebrate the end of a busy week,
something that’s cheerful and exciting to make,
something that’s offbeat - chocolate, peanut butter and lime...in a cookie?,
something with an unexpected taste that turns delightful with each bite...

Baking can be a lot of things – it can be distracting but simple, it can be movement with focus, it can be whatever you need when you need it. Choose a recipe to fit the mood and it becomes a useful tool as well – baking to quiet the mind, to connect with your emotions, or simply baking to feel emotional. Just think of the feelings you get and the emotions you experience when baking your favourite dessert…. excitement, relief, fulfillment, joy, accomplishment.
