Compassion! I have no recipe to share nor photo for you to admire, but rather I have a challenge for you. I know that sounds a little trite, but in light of recent events I think I'm going to issue you a challenge to make something with your own two hands and give it to someone you love. I don't want to hear any whining about how you can't bake or don't have time, or that it won't be as good as so-and-so's. Here's one of my favorite quotes regarding baking:
“I can’t emphasize enought how important it is to let yourself try and fail—it’s only flour and water and time. Remember, success is a poor teacher... The most important thing to remember is to get in the kitchen and have a good time...
“I once heard a famous Parisian baker who inspired so many bakers speak about being invited for dinner at a family’s home. The hostess set a basket of bread on the table and immediately apologized for it, saying she had made it herself and of course, it didn’t compare to his masterful loaves. But he said, on the contrary, this bread was far batter than anything he had ever sold, for she had made it to feed her family—with her own two hands and all her heart.”
