Old is Gold!

 

Our favorite recipes are always the ones our parents or grandparents did.  Every homemade meal tastes much better, fresher and healthier. Because it is specially made for the family and not mass-produced every detail matters. Perfecting the recipes became their favorite hobby and exchanging the best ideas throughout generations.

One of the best things I enjoy until now is family baking!

Let me tell you a little bit about my favorite memories of family baking 🙂

Childhood Baking Memories!  

There is something truly indescribable about the warmth baking gives to our homes. It suddenly feels so much cozier, smells incredible and the entire house is like a bakery.

I was hypnotized by the fresh dough smell, its soft feel as you roll it with the palm of your hands on the board and the airy texture it has when you let it rest and rise.

The most exciting moment for me was when my mother placed the dough in the oven and I kept watching it impatiently from the oven’s glass door. I used to kneel so close to the oven’s door and narrow my hands around my eyes to see it better!

Magic dough!

I remember how my mouth would open in excitement and my eyes would widen, thinking it was pure magic seeing the dough rise and getting coated in crisp golden color!

Showdown!

And don’t even get me started on the first moment you take it out of the oven, the first touch/poke to check if it is as soft as you wanted it to be and it is! A thousand wows when the crust is crispy and it’s fluffy from inside!

Because we don’t want you to miss out on the joy baking brings to yourself and family filling your home with love, we are sharing one of the best white toast recipes from the New York Times!

My favorite thing about this recipe is that it is easy, almost all ingredients are easily available and it is not difficult to make.  You can use the toast to grab breakfast quickly if you are an early bird with a cup of coffee or tea, if not then pack it to work for breakfast or brunch just to get you going and energized.

 Try it out with your partner! Like in the movies? Haha, maybe!

Could be romantic 😉

 

Also fun?

And definitely messy but a good kind of mess  😉

 

Or with your kids!

Let the kids join you when you are kneading !! I was always happier and more confident to be trusted with a little responsibility. And they are more likely to eat something they have helped to make!  Let them help in packing their lunch boxes 🙂 

 

Bless them with the same warmth you felt as a child with your parents and grandparents <3  Also a clever way to get them off their technologies a little bit and give them more exposure and experience. Engage them with you in that step and you will feel so much love from them!

Prepare a fun lunch box for your kids with all kinds of spread and fillings:  cheese, jam, chocolate, cream, peanut butter, turkey, or whatever else they like 🙂 

 

Don’t forget to leave them a note to cheer their day and remind them of your love 🙂
