I’m optimistic - it’s hopeful, positive, and happy. It feels like I can handle anything (even when things get tough). It’s a sweet place to be, so while I’m here I think I’ll bake.
I'm feeling...
something that’s *happiness* in a bowl,
something that’s a delight to make,
something with a cool and creamy texture,
something with a naturally sweet taste...
  • I’m optimistic
  • I’ll bake
  • Strawberries with Honey in Cream
  • Sweet, Cool, Creamy
  • Happy
This dessert extends the optimism all the way from my heart to my toes - it makes me happy.

Print Recipe
Prep time: 10 minutes
Serves 6
  • 15-20 fresh strawberries, sliced into halves
  • Honey, to drizzle (about 3 tbsp)
  • Whipped cream (premade or follow recipe below using:)
  • 500 ml whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
Let’s make something to enjoy...
Make the whipped cream (omit if using the premade variety): In a small bowl, whip the heavy cream with the sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form, 2-3 minutes. Distribute evenly into 6 dessert bowls.
Top the whipped cream with the strawberries, then drizzle on the honey (about ½ tbsp per bowl).
It’s light and fresh and exactly the thing to accompany this optimism. Beautiful.

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.
