Unlike the 20-minute meals we turn to as dinnertime salvation during the week, baking cakes, cookies, breads, and muffins take time, patience and concentration. Long leisurely weekends are perfect for a little baking, and frankly, it's absolute therapy to pound a stiff dough or beat a creamy batter after a long, hard week. Just be sure and bake enough to go around. When it comes to whipping up a batch of homemade goodness, sharing is the best part.
