vibrant lemon raspberry muffins.
When the situation looks gray and gloomy - it spreads a feeling of darkness over the rest of the day. It creates a difficult, messy, sadness that blocks out the light...
Add some vibrant, bright colour back to the day. Change direction, get moving, do something fun, and don’t give up. This feeling is temporary. Create a vibrant mood around you (and bake)!
I'm feeling...
Bake muffins. Muffins that are sweet and bright.
that are simple and light but pack a flavour punch,
with a sweet yet tart taste to brighten the mood,
that are deliciously soft, fluffy, and tender,
that’s easy to make and a quick way to add colour to the mood,
and that’s a reminder to look for vibrancy in the everyday...

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.
