Anyone who enjoys baking will tell you how beautifully satisfying the experience 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.
There’s nothing quite like that smell!
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. 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 different from other types of cooking in that it doesn’t require a specific talent or skill. 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. Because it is a scientific process, you will surely get the same delicious result if, again, you do as the recipe tells you. So you can’t do magic here. Just love. Plus Your bread machine or oven of course.
Baked goods 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 equals 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. For whatever reasons, baking brings people 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 though is a far cry. It’s mostly just sugar, eggs and flour, plus some affordable additions here and there.
So what’s keeping you? Get that bakin’ rollin’!
