Freshly baked bread, one of the most beautiful things you can offer & lovely to rest your eyes on. That in itself is enough for a refined dining experience. Great when you put the bread buns in a nice pattern too.
Now I’m not a baking (mom) even though I might wish I had the talent. But like most, I love freshly baked, newly baked, the smell, the heat and all that implies. I grew up with freshly baked cinnamon buns and a glass of milk as a snack. Nowadays, I see it more as a soothing activity with the preparations and the actual baking process itself.Also, I think the scent that spreads through the house, makes all in the household very friendly.
