happy chocolate chip muffins.
I’m happy - it’s a wonderful, easy, effortless “happy”. You don’t have to work for it – it just is and that right there makes me happy. I think I’ll bake.
I'm feeling...
something that reflects all the good in this mood,
something that falls into place easily,
something that’s filling but also delightfully soft and fluffy,
something that makes my kitchen smell like the *bakery* it is ...

Feel. Bake. Better.
It’s not just about baking something to get you through the day.
It’s not about eating the whole tray to feel better.
It’s about getting lost in the process.
It’s about enjoying every moment.
It’s about sharing it with people that support and care about you.
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.
