Blackberry Cobbler

As I dug into this luscious plate of blackberry cobbler last week,  I thought to myself how I cannot be more correct about following my urge to try and learn the art of baking a few years ago. It is one of the most  worthwhile things I ever chose to do.

I mean, having warm blackberry cobbler in no time and at the perfect time? What could  ever be wrong about baking ?

So if I were to write a letter to Baking like it was a person. It will go like this:


Dear Baking,

Thank you for making me look forward to late nights after my baby is fast asleep, when I can prance into the kitchen and bake away in solitude.

There is nothing comparable to the excitement I feel as I wait in anticipation of what is to come out of the oven.

Thank you for those bitter sweet moments when I have to wait for a cake to bake while the house smells of butter, and then tasting sweet victory after every baking success.

You make me persevere each time I fail. You make me try and try again. Thank you for teaching me patience.

Thank you for making celebrations merrier, and simple days special.

But  most of all,  thank you for the genuine joy you bring

and for making me realize that greatest happiness

can come from smallest things.

Even from a single slice of cake.
