Nothing like the smell of home made fresh bread, when your house is for sale...and having potential buyers coming through.
My wife is great at cooking & baking / just reads a recipe once and goes from stratch, making it her own.
The only downside is, when we go to a restraunt, my menu choice is more limited / as her cooking is better, then eating out.
She learned all she could from her mother, that just creates...based on taste...then add this & a little bit of that.
We have one neighbor (& close friend) for over 25 years...he is in his early 70's and his lovely wiife passed of cancer 15 years ago.
So when my wife bakes, there is always more then the 2 of us needs...so I ring his door bell and take him over treats / his face lights up like a Xmas tree, so nice to see.
He is very grateful and loves our Amy to / he has our spare house key, and will let Amy out, if we have a weeding to go to or something, once a year.
25 years ago, had another great neighbor that was retired and dieing of cancer...just the sweetest guy that loved my first dobe Tanya.
His family couldn't visit much, so my wife cooked for him every day, in his final month...when it became clear, he needed help...and no one else was stepping up.
Sometimes bake &/or cooked goods, are most valued gifts of appreciation...for our senior friends and neighbors.
- only takes a few minutes, to make a big difference
