Gluten-Free Oatmeal Honey Muffins

Sometimes you just get it right. The mix, the baking time, the morning light, the tea, the day off. And you savour it, long and good.  You eat your breakfast slower than usual, you close your eyes while you sip, and conversation is all about this present moment.  

When they say, enjoy the small things in life – there’s really something to it, isn’t there? If I stop and think of these delights not being in my life – I immediately think, oh goodness I’m so grateful that they in fact are.
The simple act of baking a batch of muffins for my family, sitting down and enjoying them together – that may be a small thing, but it’s something I treasure.
What have you baked lately, that was just right?

  1. I fairly regularly bake a Challah bread for my family for Friday night Shabbat dinner (we’re Jewish, if you didn’t know what Shabbat was). It has turned into a wonderful, meditative ritual for me to knead the bread. It is so satisfying to see the rising dough and to smell to delicious scent of fresh bread in the oven. And then, the appreciation of my 7 year old and my husband puts a smile on my face every time. I can’t even say I get it perfect each time, because each time it’s a little bit different, but they fuss over it all the same.
    This is one of my small pleasures.
