I love to bake for friends or family. The main reason I like giving baked goods is because it radiates warmth – straight from the heart. Most people are so pleasantly surprised by baked goods. I find there is no greater gesture.
There are so many good reasons to bake up a yummy treat for someone. It might be a friend who has had surgery or been sick, someone who has recently had a baby, a neighbor who has returned from a long trip, or someone who’s simply had a bad day. I also love to bake as a way to say Thank you. The reasons are endless. Just know that when you bake for someone, you absolutely make their day.
You can bake home-made quick breads and give loaves as gifts. You can bake a variety of cookies. A pie or a plate of brownies make the perfect gift. Get creative and start spreading sunshine in the form yumminess.
Whatever message you are bringing, a plate of cookies is the best way to get that message across.
