Baking is one of my favorite past-times to help me relax. I love the cook, too, but there's something about baking that has always been a true passion of mine. I learned to bake from my mom, followed by a couple of year of required Home Economics at high school. The recipes I learned formed a good foundation for my baking skills which I continue to improve on today. Of course, not only is baking relaxing but at the end of it you get to eat something delicious (at least usually!). Enjoy!
