Make the Kitchen Shine this Holiday Season

For anyone who loves to cook and bake, this is the time of the year for them to shine. The turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade cornbread stuffing, and pie enjoyed in the Thanksgivings spread was just a warm-up. Now it’s time for the month-long extravaganza of cookie exchanges, holiday parties, and more than a few reasons to try out a new recipe. Is it any wonder that so many consider the kitchen to be the heart of the home?

The designation is easy to understand when you consider that warmth, can be both literal and emotional. Even without the words to say so, the very young and pets understand that magic is taking place in the room. This can be witnessed in the constant hovering underfoot or climbing onto chairs all with the hope of being including in the action. As a result, individuals from multiple generations meet in the kitchen to make strong memories that begin with baking batches of cookies and planning meals that will ultimately be shared by many.

Blessing the Mess

As enjoyable as this time of year can be, there is one drawback to be considered and that’s the mess that accompanies every cooking or baking endeavor. If there are little ones “helping,” the mess extends proportionally. When helpers are in the house, you never quite know how the recipe will turn out. This is also probably the reason why the frosted sugar cookies tend to look a little more lopsided as the baking continues!
