Ok, I admit this economy has me freaked out. Every time I listen to the news or read the paper, the grim financial reports are inescapable. I find it increasingly difficult to keep my mind from wandering off to my shrinking 401(K) and toss and turn at night worrying about the future of this country. I think it’s a fair assumption that many people are stressed about the economy. The question is, what can we do to ease this stress?
I have conducted a few studies and my research concludes that comfort foods like chocolate brownies are the number one enemy of stress (did you know “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts?”). Sure, I’ll admit that this research was conducted under some questionable circumstances. Ok you’ve got me, the subjects tested were my friends and family, but the results were unanimous!
Do your part and help uplift those poor, miserable souls around you – get in that kitchen and start baking! Thankfully, with a book like Joan Donogh’s “Now….you’re cooking! Comfort Food Classics” the task can be fun and easy. Joan is a humanitarian of the highest caliber, sharing her amazing comfort food classic recipes for pasta, coffee cake, bread, cookies and even candy. Yum!
Joan, you are an angel. I feel better already.
