The Pure Joys of Baking
Anyone who bakes as a passion knows just how joyfully fulfilling the activity is. If you’ve always been drawn to baking but somehow need a little push, you might just get that in no time. Your bread machine or oven isn’t going to bake 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. It can be apple pie, cinnamon bread or plain bread – nothing just makes your house glow with that smell of love quite like that. According to studies, baking can even stir up so many beautiful childhood memories. When you’ve started baking, you will never want your home to smell of anything else. And your bread machine or oven won’t have to sit so lonely in that corner ever 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. Forget adjustments or improvisations, unless you’re ready to get a different result. Note that measurements are central to 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 no magic here! Just love and passion. And of course, your bread machine or oven.
Baked goodies can be frozen.
After baking some nice treats for your family and friends, there’s no need to eat them all in one sitting. Whatever you couldn’t finish can always go to the freezer. When you want to eat later, there will always be something you can pull out.
Baking is love.
Unless you want that entire batch of brownies all to yourself, you’ll probably planning to give some to your kids or bring them to work. To bake is to love and share. Baking is such a beloved way of bringing families and friends together. 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.
It’s highly affordable.
If you love cooking, it can easily get expensive with those fine meats and cheeses and all. Baking is just about the opposite. It’s mostly just sugar, eggs and flour, plus some affordable additions here and there.
So what could possibly be keeping you? Roll the bakin’!
