I think it’s so important during times like these, when we crave human connection, that we continue to keep some level of normalcy. Of course, all while staying informed and engaged with what’s going on in our communities and our country as a whole. Not too long ago I did an IG Live with my friend, Mel Asseraf, also known as @bakingbossbabe. Baking really can be the best medicine! Even for someone like me who usually steers clear of the baking department!

We had so much fun together making Cherry Sundae Cupcakes from her adorable baking kit!  I didn’t have to do too much but follow the instructions. All the ingredients are in the kit except a few which you will probably already have on hand.  She led me through the whole process from start to finish.

Bake It With Mel

Chef Mel, a 2x Chopped Champion, is rooted in French pastry technique and has an eye for the best ingredients with a dash of old-school classics. She creates baking kits that can be customized to your brand, which is something everyone can get excited about! I love the idea of having all of your ingredients pre-measured, along with recipe sheets and tools. It makes baking pretty much stress-free and everything comes neatly packaged in a little backpack. For any of you looking to entertain little ones or get your feet wet with baking, I highly recommend giving Chef Mel’s kits a try!

We have to continue to support each other In the midst of everything going on in the world. Baking is just one example of something that can bring us together. Let’s continue to do better and use the resources we have to educate one another on the important issues moving forward. Most importantly, don’t forget to vote so that we can voice our opinions where they matter!

Let’s stay in touch, keep cooking, and keep the conversation going.
