Baked goods and I sometimes have a complicated relationship. Mostly, it’s a positive one – I love all baked goods! Especially with a strong cup of black coffee… baked goods get elevated to a different level altogether.
But baked goods and I have to be in harmony for maximum enjoyment.
When the balance is thrown off, a sweet relationship can become sour.
The wonderful thing about all of it is that… this relationship is designed, decided, and controlled by me and only me! The baked goods have no say, nor should they. Sweet or sour, I get to be in charge.
I can decide to bake it, eat it, enjoy it and have the best experience with it whenever I want. I can keep it a sweet relationship in harmony.
Zucchini bread is one of my favourite baked goods that I adore, and want to have a positive relationship with now and forever.
So I bake it, enjoy it, and have the best experience with it by not overeating it, not feeling guilty about it, and sharing it with the world.
It’s a sweet relationship designed completely by me.
