A weekend in the kitchen at this time of year is best experienced with the sounds of holiday music swirling around mixing with spices. Trust me. If you sing a few holiday favorites while you cook, the joy you feel will fill all that you touch. An apple blueberry pie and dark chocolate cupcakes topped with blueberry cream frosting, fresh blueberries and half a strawberry (just because) are my proof that the right music can turn ordinary into amazing. I have the feeling that everything I bake this season will be perfect—like Marvin Gaye on repeat.

Feels Like: burning hope for better tomorrows
Sounds Like: widest deepest highest love
