Embrace a Stress-Free Holiday SeasonDecember 7, 2023
The holidays are approaching and nearly 90% of millennials and Gen Xers will bake during the holidays. Baking is a way to connect with loved ones but can also cause stress. 89% of consumers find holiday meal prep to be stressful. However, there are ways to reduce holiday baking stress. Ensure you have the right kitchen essentials, such as baking trays, silicone baking mats, and measuring cups. Stick to easy baking recipes like cookies, cakes, and brownies. Plan ahead and avoid complex recipes. Consider store-bought cookies that can be decorated at home as a stress-free option. Host a cookie exchange to involve family and friends. Remember that practice makes perfect. Baking should be an enjoyable and creative experience, not a source of dread or stress during the holidays.
