Kids with chef hats preparing the cake dough - mixing ingredient Have you ever made bread? I must say that bread baking in your kitchen makes your entire house smell like love. If you haven’t made bread, have you ever bought bread from a bakery warm out of the oven? In Brooklyn, when I was young, my father and I would go to the German deli and buy bread hot out of the oven then wait for the bread to be put into a large machine and sliced. All the way home the car would smell so divine we could hardly wait to get home to eat it and slather it with butter.

Write your stories about bread. Write every detail. Remember the joy of it all.

Keep the pen moving,


FYI – the Can You Find My Love? children’s book series is now being translated into Spanish. The first book, Seasons, has already been published. It can be bought on
