The Joy and Beauty of Baking
Anyone who enjoys baking will tell you how beautifully satisfying the experience is. 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 is just lovely.
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 actually say baking can cause a flood of beloved childhood memories. When you’ve started baking, you will never want your home to smell of anything else. And your bread machine or oven need not have to sit so lonely there again.
Baking is different from other types of cooking in that it doesn’t require a specific talent or skill. 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’s a scientific process, and as mentioned, you will obtain the exact delicious outcome at the end if you strictly follow the recipe. So no magic here! Just love and passion. And of course, your bread machine or oven.
Baked goods 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. Whenever you feel hungry, it’s just right there waiting for you in 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. Baking has a way of bringing people together so many reasons. And being the one who baked for everyone, the feeling is secretly amazing. With your bread machine or oven as your partner, you’ll feel like there’s so much more for you to bake.
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 could possibly be keeping you? Roll the bakin’!
