lovin-from-the-ovenI love to bake.  It is very different from when I cook.  Cooking is an exercise in creativity while baking for me is an exact science.  It is very easy to foul up a baked good.  Too much liquid and it is soggy.  Not enough and you have a hard brick.  Better yet if you are talking on the phone and not paying attention to what you have added you get a really gross tasting hard brick.  Not that I would ever do a thing like that.  Occassionally I like to give my baked goods that have all of their ingredients and taste correctly to my neighboors.  Gift bags for me are the easiest way to deliver them.  In my head the pretty packaging makes it taste better too. 

What is your favorite thing to bake?  Do you have a special packaging?

    Curtis does most of the baking, and we bake mostly cookies. We deliver them in pretty boxes at Christmas, but other times of year I’ll put them in a decorated bag. That bag you made is really pretty.
