The Pleasures of Baking
Any person who loves to bake will tell you what a beautiful and fulfilling experience it is – yes, every time. If you’ve always been attracted to baking but you just thought you needed a little push, it might be your lucky today. Your bread machine or oven isn’t going to bake on its own.
That smell – incomparable!
Yes, that smell can be quite enigmatic, even more so when you know it’s from your bread machine or oven. Whether it’s cinnamon bread or chocolate chip cookies, nothing can fill your house more with the smell of love. Studies even show baking can bring back so many lovely memories of childhood. Once you’ve stared baking, you’ll soon realize that there’s no other smell you’d like to envelope your home with. And your bread machine or oven need not have to sit so lonely there again.
The rules are clear-cut.
Baking is not like other types of cooking where you need a special skill or talent. All you need is attention to detail and of course, the discipline to follow a recipe to the letter. Absolutely no improvisations if you want to get the exact same result. Keep in mind that measurements are at the core of baking. It is a scientific process, and again, as long as you do as you are instructed by the recipe, you will get the same delicious result at the end. So forget magic. Just passion. Plus Your bread machine or oven of course.
Baked goodies can be frozen.
Once you’ve baked some nice and delicious goodies for the family or for your friends, it’s not necessary to finish everything right away. You can always freeze whatever you can’t finish, so there’s no need to worry. Anytime you feel hungry, just pull something it out of the freezer.
Baking is love.
Unless you’re greedy by nature, you’re probably going to give some of those cookies to your kids or bring them over to a friend’s house. Baking is sharing and loving. For whatever reasons, baking brings people together. And if you’re the one who baked for everyone, it gives you a secretly amazing feeling. And with your bread machine or oven, you’ll think there’s so much more baking to do.
It’s highly affordable.
If you love cooking, it can easily get expensive with those fine meats and cheeses and all. Baking is the exact opposite. Usually, you’ll only need flour, eggs, sugar and some additions, which are also probably cheap.
So what can ever keep you now? Get that bakin’ rollin’!
