People show their love in so many different ways. I’m a classic case of baking or feeding those that I love. It’s the only thing that has saved my waistline, but it does more for my heart to feed my friends and my family good food and delicious treats. A few weeks ago I was able to take part in a very special event hosted by King Arthur Flour to bake and cook for a good cause. When we do things for others, it’s more than a action, it’s a piece of ourselves invested in that time and that food, and its a hope to bring smiles to other people’s faces. But in the end that simple action brings more back to ourselves and fills out heart ten fold.
During the two day event with King Arthur Flour, we did more than learn about proper techniques for baking bread, or learning the secrets to the perfect pie crust, we got to delve into what Baking for Good is about on a whole and even better, a personal level.
Baking is a fundamental part of who I am. I find it calming, centering, and gratifying, captured perfectly when someone else is enjoying what I took the time to make for them. Part of the Bake for Good mission is to perform a baking act of kindness to those in your community. Finding a way to light up others day through baking, or cooking if that is more your speed, can have a profound impact on those around you.
As our act of kindness, the team at King Arthur Flour and our blogger team were able to provide dinner and dessert – from those perfectly crusted pies we learned about – to a local women and children’s shelter in Seattle. For the dinner portion of our evening Jenny and I tackled the chicken of the night, this chicken right here.
Providing a home cooked meal to women and their children who want a piece of home, meant sharing what I love the most and hoping to meet them at that intersection of home and love. I’m so pleased to have been apart of this community event with King Arthur Flour and hope that you too will find a way to bring a piece of your self and a piece of your hearth to your own community.
And if the shy, wonderful, soul explodingly sweet kids at the shelter were any testament – coming back for seconds and thirds – of this chicken alone, you know it is a sure winner and one that is meant to be shared in your own home.
Thank you King Arthur Flour for this incredible opportunity. And I hope to continue on this mission of Baking for Good.
