Cheers Me Up

I like to bake, it always cheers me up some.  My favorite things to bake are cake and bread.  I do make cookies pretty often though.  I often think about what it would be like to be a pastry chef.  

I've collected more recipes than I can ever possibly make, but reading cookbooks and recipes makes me feel a little calmer.  Whenever I get really lonely for someone, I make one of their recipes.

That's really sweet! I like cooking as well. I like having natural light in the kitchen from the sun, I put on some nice music and sing and cook. Really cheers me up. Haven't tried cookies though yet, I'm still scared to get near the oven, I just know it won't come out right hah! I do want to try brownies though! My best friend is a brilliant cook!!! She knows loads of recepies and teaches me.

Baking picks me up too. And yeah, there's really something calming about it. When I'm down or stressed, somehow mixing, kneading, watching stuff rise and smelling it bake in the oven is relaxing.

great finally i can have good recepies can you make cakes? mhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh already can smell it.

I have not done pastries. But cooking is a joy in my life. While I am no chef, I am reaching the point where I can be proud of some of my own creations. Often the kitchen is a haven where I can simply enjoy.
