One of my favorite things to do is bake. There is a deep satisfaction that stems from choosing a new recipe, turning on some great music to listen and sing to, and entering a zen state until recipe completion–all while getting to hang out with Atticus!
Unfortunately, doing a lot of baking usually means eating a lot…unless you give away the fruits of your labor! Like a cat who brings its owner a dead mouse, I enjoy gifting baked goods to friends to express gladness that I know them. (Well, okay, there’s a little bit of ego involved too…I want people to know about my mad skillz.)
My future goals are to start tackling crusted breads, improve my pizza dough shaping, find a tasty yet simple pie dough recipe that doesn’t use shortening, and continue to find ways to distribute the goods to make the highest number of people see hearts when they look at me. Any takers?
