Baking for the mind and soul

Everything kept going wrong last night. Nothing horrible but just enough crap to get under my skin and annoy me. So what did I do? After a nice healthy glass of pinot grigio I set to baking. That's right. Baking. It soothes me. It makes me calmer. I get to take little nothings like four, sugar and eggs and make them into something worthwhile. This time, the something was banana muffins. I'll post the pictures and recipe soon. But for now, I can revel in feeling like I've meditated, and feeling like I've created something good. And those are pretty good feelings.

  1. I 100% agree, when I am totally pissed off and irritated with the world, making something wonderful makes me feel so much better. I just forget about all the bad stuff and know that I am making something wonderful that everyone will love ( I usually make a dessert :D )
