SPONSORED POST: Let’s Bake Ourselves Happy!

Have you ever had that feeling of satisfaction after preparing a dish for you loved ones and they actually love it? I get it all the time, even if it’s just a simple sandwich fix or a super-easy baked pudding. The smiles and giggles I get in return from the family afterwards are priceless. I’m sure us mommies know how exactly that feels, and I bet that is what gets us back in the kitchen now and then.

Well, you know what? Next week on May the 17th, is World Baking Day! To celebrate that, I am taking a Pledge to Bake. Yeah, why not celebrate by getting creative in the kitchen, enjoying a little ‘me-time’ and most of all to earn those smiles and that priceless feeling again! So, next week I will be baking Charlotte’s Zebra Chocolate Chip Cookies and I will be baking for the kids. I know how they love cookies, and Charlotte’s recipe will definitely be a sweet surprise from my ordinary Choco Chip Cookies.



Hey, why don’t you join me on this? We can bake our own recipes but share the same happiness all around! You can join #worldbakingday on social media to share your bake! If you’re not a cookie mom like me, you can try this recipe by Blue Band for The World’s Happiest Cake. Using combined flavors of coconut, mango and lime, I can just imagine how happy it will make us feel. Here’s the recipe if you would like to try.
