Isn’t baking in December some of the most fun baking there is? I have a few theories on why this is. For the US folks, this is typically one of the cooler months, so being in a cozy kitchen with an oven full of delectable cookies and treats warms the soul as well as the toes!.It is the season of giving. Meaning, not only are we baking and exchanging and giving to others, but often we are receiving delicious treats! Every year I look forward to the holiday inspired cookies and candies displayed everywhere.Baking is not only fun, but therapeutic. My friend Jocelyn (from GrandBaby Cakes ) shared this article called Therapists Now Encourage Cooking and Baking as Cures for Depression . Yes and yes. I could not agree more… baking brings my heart joy, and I hope it does yours as well.
