Our goal is always this: to give you the tools to make the most out of your kitchen for weeknights, busy mornings, and every moment in between. We’re entering holiday baking season full speed and we know that you have obligations that require cookies, cakes, or cinnamon rolls and we don’t want you to get overwhelmed. This week we’re joined by Cindy Rahe — professional food photographer and recipe developer who specializes in beautiful baked goods — to have a reality check about holiday baking. Here is the good news: you don’t have to make holiday baking complicated and you can bake in a smart and easy way with your kids, too.
THIS WEEK’S EPISODE IS MADE POSSIBLE BY OUR FAVORITE BAKING INGREDIENT:
Bake What You Love on Repeat (Year After Year)
While we both get excited about holiday leftovers, neither Stacie or Meghan love leftovers. We love intentional leftovers, lunch-overs, but no one really wants to eat the same dinner on repeat for 4 days in a row anyway. So when we talk about making the most of leftovers we mean two things: storing them safely and eating them up before they go bad.

Cindy Rahe – Mama, Baker, Food Picture Maker
Cindy Rahe is the recipe maker, treat baker, and picture taker behind Hungry Girl por Vida. She loves to bake from scratch and make things that taste as good as they look. Cindy was born near Seoul but grew up in California and Nevada. Her love of food has been influenced by her Korean mother’s ongoing quest for finding and eating delicious things, along with a childhood of watching her paternal grandmother bake holiday pies. She believes strongly in homemade birthday cakes, creamy coffee, and making room for dessert.
