My Kind of “Processing” ;<) In My Kitchen

In my kitchen, I create.
Breads to rise and cakes to bake.
Here, I stir, knead and sauté.
Spoons and knives, in happy disarray.
In my kitchen, I am queen!
Baking cobblers, date bars and other sweet dreams.
Soups and salads, lovingly prepared.
With a smidge of spice and a dash of flair.
Blissfully,¬†I’m lost….
in heady aromas and tastes.
A world of flavors.
and delights to partake.
I am home.
Oh so free.
This truly is, where I am ME!
The stress of the day is left behind.
It’s time to create.
All problems resigned.
Pity those who can’t boil¬†an egg.
Seeking culinary skills.
They will often beg.
The chemistry of cooking.
A wonder to share.
It’s almost like love, but¬†with calories…
oh dear!
In my kitchen, safe and warm.
flour heaven ?
So glad to be here.
