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. After all, your bread machine or oven isn’t moving 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 chocolate chip cookies or apple pie, nothing else can make your house smell more filled with love. Studies actually say baking can cause a flood of beloved childhood memories. 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.
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. And your partner, your bread machine or oven.
Baked goods can be frozen.
After baking some delicious goodies for your friends and loved ones, you don’t have to finish everything right there and then. 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 a way of loving and sharing. Baking has a way of bringing people together so many reasons. And if you baked the goodies yourself, it’s a secretly fantastic feeling somehow. 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 is just about the opposite. Usually, you’ll only need flour, eggs, sugar and some additions, which are also probably cheap.
So what could possibly be keeping you? Get baking!
