Finding Solace in Baking

It started with Friendsgiving. Baked some sweet potatoes and pumpkin and pecan-cranberry pies.
Baked cranberry and carrot-fig-pecan breads for Betty’s thank-you tea party.
Baked banana bread to use up my roommate’s old bananas. Added mace and allspice for interest.
Baked a cheese-rose-elderflower pie for the medieval feast.
Now I am baking cookies because I don’t want to stop baking. It is simple and peaceful. I get to see the fruits of my labor immediately. I am out very little if something goes wrong. It is something I can share with others; I don’t have the opportunity to share much anymore.
