The Joy and Beauty 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. After all, your bread machine or oven isn’t moving 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 chocolate chip cookies or apple pie, nothing else can make your house smell more filled with love. According to studies, baking can even stir up so many beautiful 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 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. No room for adjustments or improvisations if you want exactly the same outcome. Note that measurements are central to 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. Plus Your bread machine or oven of course.
You can freeze baked goodies.
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. Baking is sharing and loving. For whatever reasons, baking brings people together. And if you’re the one who baked for everyone, it gives you a secretly amazing feeling. And with your bread machine or oven, you’ll think there’s so much more baking to do.
Its cost is reasonable.
If you love cooking, it can easily get expensive with those fine meats and cheeses and all. Baking is just about the opposite. Think about it – staple ingredients are flour, sugar and eggs and a few additions that are also likely to be cheap.
So what could possibly be keeping you? Get baking!
