I’ve been thinking (thinking being the key word here) that it would be really nice to have a little homemade treat waiting for my husband when he got home tonight. I’ve actually been meaning to do that for some time now. I did bake him a birthday cake last week, which he claimed to love even though it was pretty raw in the middle (oops), but a batch of nice, wholesome muffins, that he can grab when he’s looking for a snack, would really be thoughtful of me, wouldn’t it?
Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks about showing her love with a little baking. There’s an iVillage community called Bake Some Love, where members can post recipes and ideas, just because you want to show some appreciate for those you love. Because after all, “Sometimes nothing shows you care like a warm batch of freshly-baked cookies…” Right?
So if you love to bake– and even more so, if you can’t stand it– why not take 20 minutes to whip up a batch of love? It’s a small way to say, “I’ve been thinking about you. Hope you enjoy!”
