The kitchen has been one of the best places for me to visit, for as long as i can remember. Although i would not particularly wish to be chained to it barefoot and pregnant like our great grands. Well, maybe they weren’t chained but they were “burdened” with kitchen chores and seen as less of women if they didn’t display any kitchen prowess.
I love cooking and generally being in the kitchen, for as long as i do it willingly and lovingly . I love it so much that if given the chance i would quit the corporate world and go straight into the kitchen……watch this space. I however found myself pondering the question of what it is i love the most, cooking or baking???. And as difficult as it nearly seemed to answer, if push came to shove however, and i had to choose between the two,i would easily go with baking. The smell of freshly baked bread, the sweet smell of sweet nothings floating in the air, coupled with that strong urge to brew a strong cuppa is just priceless.
With today being the first official day of Autumn for us in the Southern Hemisphere, the weather is permitting;dark clouds, a dense breeze with light showers. Nothing is more beckoning than a batch of freshly made choc chip cookies or my favourite bran muffins, paired with a creamy cup of coffee.
Cheers to the past wonderful summer and hello cold weather baked goodies.
