The Joy and Beauty 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 drawn to baking but somehow need a little push, you might just get that in no time. Besides, your bread machine or oven cannot bake by itself.
That smell – incomparable!
Yes, that smell can be quite enigmatic, even more so when you know it’s 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. Studies even show baking can bring back so many lovely memories of childhood. 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 will brim with life that it so deserves.
Baking is unique from other types of cooking because it doesn’t need you to have any particular skill or talent. You just need to have good focus and the discipline to do exactly as the recipe says. Forget adjustments or improvisations, unless you’re ready to get a different 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 forget magic. Just love. Plus Your bread machine or oven of course.
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. Baked goodies can be frozen so there’s no worries. When you want to eat later, there will always be something you can pull out.
Baking is love.
Unless you’re that greedy and want all those butterscotch bars to yourself, you’ll probably want to save some for your children or for your friends at work. To bake is to love and share. Baking is such a beloved way of bringing families and friends 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 is the exact opposite. It’s mostly just sugar, eggs and flour, plus some affordable additions here and there.
So what’s keeping you? Get baking!
