One of the best and worst parts of baking is, you end up with something incredible to eat. “Woah, woah did you just say one of the worst?!?!” Now before you get your knickers in a twist hear me out. I love pastries as much as the next gal, but I also love baking. Like, all the time. And although I do have a big family if I’m baking constantly, and we eat everything I make, we won’t be far off from Hansel and Gretel. So, that being said eating pastries is amazing but, if we want to fit through the doorways, sharing is always the way to go.
I’m sure you’ve heard by now about hurricane harvey and the impact it has left. My family lives about an hour outside of houston in a small town named Brenham (home of blubell whoop, whoop!). Thankfully, our town only recieved rain, and no flooding. Like many, I’ve been searching for a way to serve, and food being an essential, theres always a need for it.
Brenham has the priveledge of hosting the National Guard, including feeding all 300+ of them for around 3 months. So, I jumped right in and was able to make some iced sugar cookies, and some chocolate chip cookies for them. All around texas many people are taking up donations for all of the victims, and one of our friends needed breakfast foods. In crisis one thing people may not necesarily think of is people with allergies. Luckily, I’ve been able to experiment alot with gluten free items and also got to send some banana muffins to a group of flood victims as well.
