For Debee Ruiz, bak­ing is the ul­ti­mate show of af­fec­tion come Christ­mas time

When I think about cel­e­brat­ing fes­tiv­i­ties I think Buddy the Elf said it best: “First we’ll make snow an­gels for two hours, then we’ll go ice skat­ing, then we’ll eat a whole roll of cookie dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snug­gle.” It’s about spend­ing time with the ones we love and, when we gather, we eat. My ab­so­lute favourite way to cel­e­brate is bak­ing. No need to wait for spe­cial oc­ca­sions, ei­ther. It’s your birth­day? I’m go­ing to bake you some­thing. It’s not your birth­day? No prob­lem. We’ll find some­thing else to cel­e­brate and bake for.

bak­ing is a love lan­guage. if i bake for you, then it’s a sure sign i love you

You got a new shirt? Yep. I’m gonna bake you some­thing. It’s one of my favourite love lan­guages and a form of ther­apy. If I bake for you, it’s a sure sign I love you. I also adore the pack­ag­ing that comes with gift­ing calori­cious good­ies, and love ac­ces­soris­ing my bakes with a few or­na­ments that fam­ily and friends can use after ev­ery­thing’s eaten up. So in fact, I’m giv­ing the gift of both eat­ing and dec­o­rat­ing. Try it out – your friends and fam­ily will love it.
