Babe, I cook/bake when I am upset, mad, depressed, stressed. I find that it is a really tonic for me. Of course I cook and bake all the time so I SHOULD be a very peaceful and destressed person but I can't make that claim all the time!

to be honest babe, I have the desire to bake every day...I have to stop and check my self to see if I REALLY need the bread/rolls/cookies/pie/brownies/etc.....and it is not hard to convince myself that I do!

that said, I am baking a quiche and some dinner rolls today

Having to redo the cappuccino Nanaimo bars - not happy with the filling or the topping. Gee, anyone need a good caffeine fix? I have about 32 bars up for grabs!

Cooking, especially baking, is the best therapy for me. It is so focused and rewarding. Helps me to forget whatever is plaguing me at the time. And you end up with something good to eat!

Luvs, everyone has good times and bad times with baking. It is more a science than the culinary aspect of cooking is. I have been baking for years and it can still frustrate me. You will do just fine. Just practice and relax. It will all of a sudden become second nature.

On that note, my cappuccino Nanaimo bars came out great the second time around! Now on to raspberry.
