Baking has always been one of my passions I developed early on from my grandmother, who never used a measuring tool or recipe. I passed on this loving tradition to my own daughters, by always having something sweet in the oven – cookies, pies, crisps tarts – when they arrived home from school or on the weekends. It’s no wonder their friends always wanted to come to our house!
Of course, the key is always moderation. Baking is one thing – resisting is another! That’s why our family rule is, “You bake, you take.” Baked goods never stayed in the house for long. They became welcome “gifts” at school, work or friends’ homes. That way I could satisfy my love of baking, but not over-satisfy my sweet tooth. It’s a great adage to keep in mind when trying to maintain a weight-conscious environment – and a reminder that you don’t have to give up the things you love in order to stay healthy. And sharing is always appreciated.
Until next time,
