Cozy hospitality

I like to think of cozy hospitality as being friendly, kind, generous—providing a warm space for our neighbors and friends. Of course that means family, too. Always family.

This is a great recipe to take if you’re bringing a meal to someone. You can make it in 2 8×8 pans, or 1 9×13 pan.

We are all called to live hospitable lives. And here’s the beauty of hospitality—you take it with you everywhere you go. It is not just hosting in your home.

Hospitality is not always cooking up a big meal. It can be as easy as inviting people in for dessert!

What is hygge?

Two years ago my husband and I traveled to Berlin, Denmark, and Norway. We loved the European hospitably that we experienced, specifically hygge, in Denmark. The Danish people are great when it comes to getting cozy and practicing hospitality.

Hygge translates to a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. It’s the “art of creating intimacy” or “coziness of the soul” or “taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things,” and my favorite … “cozy togetherness.”

To sum it up, hospitality means being present, keeping things simple, focusing on gratitude, and savoring the simple pleasures in life.

Having people over for dessert for our family is a simple pleasure. It doesn’t cost a lot of money, it just takes a little time.
