It’s that time of year when sharing and giving trumps parties and presents. It’s when I begin to make lists of those who have been kind to me and decide what I’m going to bake for them. Yes, bake. For unconditional kindness is priceless and so is the thought of issuing your own kind of unconditional kindness on others.
So let’s get to it! Bake a dozen cookies, soak a pound of fruitcake, melt a batch of chocolate bark or boil a pot of fudge. It doesn’t have to be complicated; it just has to be from your kitchen and from your heart. Then give it all away – it truly is that simple.
And while you’re giving of your time and your heart, know that buying local ingredients keeps our communities and agricultural industries strong. It’s a kind of giving to ourselves that continually gives back. It’s all in the pages of The Ontario Table Holiday Baking, the local way. Download it now, it’s my Christmas gift to you.
From my kitchen to yours this holiday season, may your Christmas be abundant, delicious and full of love.
