uptight coffee butterscotch pudding.
Feeling uptight? It’s a tense, nervous, jittery place with no room to move – not fun unless you’re okay with rigid and stuffy. If you’ve been at it for a while, you know it’s exhausting but, maybe you don’t have to stay with it. Maybe there’s something you can do, steps you can take, to distance yourself from it. Find something relaxing to take your mind off it or determine why you’re there and work your way out. Either way, it’s time to do something different (and bake).
I'm feeling...
Bake something that contrasts with how you’re feeling.
Consider something light and creamy with a sweetly caffeinated taste that’s easy to linger over (and enjoy), and can be served alone or with lots of options...

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.
