I want to bake.
I want to create… comforting, satisfying, buttery, sweet, delicious, homemade treats.
I want cinnamon rolls and fresh bread in my kitchen and pies cooling on my counter. I want cookies in my freezer and brownies in the oven and dinner simmering on the stove.
I want to eat and not feel guilt. I want to serve and not feel like an enabler, or a ‘pusher’.
I want to enjoy food as much as I used to. Before I decided to try and live ‘healthier’. Before my waistline made me stop and think twice about everything.
I’m trying to find balance right now.
I am trying to find a place where I can cook and bake and enjoy the creativity I love in the kitchen, and yet, at the same time nourish myself and my family beyond just our tastebuds.
I want to enjoy my food and at the same time, enjoy my life.
Why does that have to be so hard??
