Love Languages, and the ‘Lovin’ From the Oven’ Gift Box

BAKIN_Lovin_From_the_OvenHave you ever heard of the idea that there are five “love languages?” Adherents to this philosophy say there are five different “languages” of caring that people speak and understand – gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, and physical touch. Figure out which of these languages your loved one “speaks,” and you can express your caring in a way that the other person best understands.

We don’t think it’s too far a stretch to say that our new collection of baking ingredients, BAKIN’ [Lovin’ From the Oven], equips you with the tools you need to speak several of these affectionate dialects.

For us, we like to show we care by spending time together, having fun in the kitchen, or by surprising loved ones with their favorite baked treats. And, for the most part, folks seem to “get the message” when we show our love with a basket of warm cookies.

We’ve packed the BAKIN’ [Lovin’ from the oven] gift box with five staff-selected favorite baking ingredients, the most essential pieces in an experienced baker’s pantry. Not an old pro at baking? These ingredients are guaranteed to make anyone think you’re the real deal, even if you’re baking your first batch of cookies.

In the Bakin’ box, you’ll find Vanilla Paste. Use this creamy, alcohol-free paste in any recipe in place of a vanilla extract. Imparts a rich vanilla flavor and beautiful “speckle” to any white cake, frosting or custard. Try it in your batters, doughs, granolas or use it as a finishing touch on ice cream, fresh fruit and yogurts. Local bakeries are snatching it up by the gallon.

Four dry spice goodies take your dessert and “kick it up another notch”- Ginger Powder, Ground Nutmeg, Apple Pie Spice, and Saigon Cinnamon.  Use them to add depth to frostings and cookies, cupcakes or brownies. Add a pinch to sweet buttery breads, your favorite homemade ice cream, in crunchy sweet “snack mixes,” and over freshly fried doughnuts and sopapillas.

Like the old Pillsbury ad campaign used to say, “Nothin’ says lovin’ like something from the oven,” and something from your oven is sure to say it best.  Whether you make your tried-and-true family favorites or you try something new (perhaps something from our online recipe collection), these top-notch baking ingredients in the BAKIN’ [Lovin’ From the Oven] are sure to make it all taste a little better.*
