2 Important Things ...



Two important things to remember, when practicing hospitality.

If you specialize in making something, like these cinnamon rolls ...




1. Make double

2. Take a pan to a neighbor or to a friend or to someone in need


That is what my friend Pam does.  

She thinks of our family.  

And we reap the benefits of her baking!  Delicious!



What do you like to share with others?

Cupcakes! I'm the cupcake maker of the neighborhood!

Boy do those rolls look delish!

Dawn S said...

Do you think Pam would share her recipe? Those look wonderful!

Dawn said...

I share pumpkin bread. I've found a very easy and delicious recipe that makes three loaves. So, one to keep and two to give!

Annie said...

My salsa! I make a vat of it and then distribute it at will! :) You can check out the recipe on my blog.

What a wonderful friend.

Carmen said...

Yum! I am way too lazy and impatient to make homemade cinnamon rolls. Haha.

I share my baking (cupcakes, cookies) and my creativity (with cards that I make).

Mimi said...

Banana bread or pumpkin bread, whichever is taking over my freezer. We like to give them to neighbors, friends and pastors during the holidays.

What a lovely thought!

It's that time of year for soups, and I know an older lady that got out of the hospital today...going to make double...and share some with her.

Thanks! Oh...and I am drooling on my keyboard about now...love cinnamon rolls.

Sandy I thought you might appreciate this post I did over on the Juice this week:

Gina said...

Yummy rolls! I share cookies-or right now the last of our garden produce. It's so easy to make double and share!

Bevy said...

Amen!! Share away. I don't do it enough... but as Scripture says it's always "more blessed to give then to receive", yet I will NEVER turn away something homemade and tasty... especially cinnamon rolls.

Aren't neighbors wonderful?

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

When I was a SAHM, I used to do this a lot. Now-a-days, I only share at Christmas when I bake buttermilk rolls, stollen, fruitcake (and yes, there are still people who love it), cookies and homemade chocolates. I wish I could do this more but alas, I must work!

N and B said...

What a reminder! I love having extra to take to a neighbors house. And how blessed they are to receive!

Farmgirl Cyn said...

Soup and bread....it's always easy to make a bit extra of both, and the elderly neighbors really appreciate it.

Angie said...

What a great reminder. I love to bake and it's so easy to double the batch. Thank you.

Betsy said...

I'm known for my cookies! I always triple the batch....eat some, freeze some...and deliver some to some unexpecting person! :)

Deanna said...

What a wonderful way to make someone's day!

Elizabeth G. said...

Same. I love to bake a double batchof whatever I'm making and take it to my neighbors or someone a little farther away, maybe. It is fun to share!

God bless,
Elizabeth

Kathy C. said...

Sweet loaf breads (pumpkin) or pan breads (gingerbread)...HOWEVER, I would love for you to share that cinnamon bun recipe!! :) Can you snag it from your neighbor? Those look so yum!

Angela said...

I really want a good cinnamon roll recipe! Got one?!!! Please share!

Polly said...

Any kind of baking really. I never like to go to anyone's house empty handed, it gives me an excuse to bake and it means its not here in my house to pig out on!!

Juliet said...

What a great idea! I live in Australia, and American and Canadian friends tell me we Aussies are not great on neighbourliness, and I think they're right. This sounds like a great way to get the ball rolling with my current neighbours!
