The Pure Joys 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 wanted to try baking but somehow need a bit of a push, that’s probably what you’re getting very soon. After all, your bread machine or oven isn’t moving on its own.
That smell – incomparable!
Yes, that smell is just drop-dead gorgeous, especially if it’s coming 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 actually say baking can cause a flood of beloved childhood memories. As soon as you begin baking, you will realize that there’s nothing else you’d rather have your home smell of. And your bread machine or oven need not have to sit so lonely there again.
Baking is unique from other types of cooking because it doesn’t need you to have any particular skill or talent. You only need to be attentive to details and disciplined enough to do just as the recipe calls for. Absolutely no improvisations if you want to get the exact same result. Remember, when it comes to baking, measurements are key. Because it is a scientific process, you will surely get the same delicious result if, again, you do as the recipe tells you. So you can’t do magic here. Just love. And of course, your bread machine or oven.
You can freeze baked goodies.
After baking some delicious goodies for your friends and loved ones, you don’t have to finish everything right there and then. Whatever you couldn’t finish can always go to the freezer. Whenever you feel hungry, it’s just right there waiting for you in the freezer.
Baking equals 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 being the one who baked for everyone, the feeling is secretly amazing. With your bread machine or oven by your side, you’ll feel like there’s more you want to do.
If you love cooking, it can easily get expensive with those fine meats and cheeses and all. Baking though is a far cry. Usually, you’ll only need flour, eggs, sugar and some additions, which are also probably cheap.
So what can ever keep you now? Get baking!
