The Joys of Baking was one of the many things my mom taught me. She is the one that got me into baking.
I can remember licking the bowl after she was done making a cake. I’m not exactly sure why I was doing that, but I’m sure it was because it tasted good.
I don’t know how old I was, and I don’t remember it being something that my mom made me do.
She thought I did it on my own, but I don’t know. The point is that she taught me how to bake, and it has become a passion of mine.
The Joys of Baking for me are all thanks to my mom. She was an awesome mom, baker, and cook.
Because of My Mom…
Because of my mom, I love to bake for my family for many reasons. I love to see the anticipation on their faces as they wait for me to reveal the finished product.
I love how much fun we have sitting around the table enjoying a meal together. I love to hear their excited chatter as they dig into their dessert first and then move on to savor other parts of their meal. Baking makes me happy!
I Believe Baking is a Joyful Activity…
Baking is just as joyful an activity as it is practical. I believe everyone should bake, whether you cook or not, and you don’t have to be a professional pastry chef.
The techniques I have learned and mastered over years of baking have improved my cooking skills as well as my baking skills. Or it’s the other way around; my cooking skills have improved my baking skills.
The Joys of Baking is My Passion for Baking…
I can say without hesitation that my passion for baking has brought me a lot of joy in my life, especially when I bake for my family. It gives me such a sense of accomplishment when I get in my kitchen and create something I know that my family is going to love.
When they sit down and dig in and I see the look of satisfaction on their faces, well there is nothing in this world like the feeling I get when that happens.
My Eleven-Year-Old Granddaughter…
I have an eleven-year-old granddaughter that loves to bake as well. So, for Christmas, I made her a recipe book with a lot of my recipes to get her started on her baking journey. Some of the recipes I passed on to her were from my mom and my grandmother.
She absolutely loves it! It makes me proud to know that I can pass along family recipes to my granddaughter. I know she will do remarkable things with them as well because she has the passion for baking I do.
I Encourage You to Continue Your Journey…
If you love to bake or just starting out, I encourage you to continue your journey with baking. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling than to create a dessert, dish, etc., and watch the people you love to enjoy the fruits of your labor. This is what the joy of baking is all about.
Will You Make Mistakes Along the Way…?
Will you make mistakes along the way with your baking? Of course, you will! That is just part of the learning process. I have been baking for 47 years and still make mistakes from time to time.
It just goes with the territory. But whatever you do, don’t give up and quit, just start over again and use this as a learning curve. It can be frustrating I know, but the next time you won’t make the same mistake again.
Baking is My Passion…
I hope that you will acquire a passion for baking as I have. It will bring joy to your life as it has mine. Once you get bitten by the “baking bug,” there is no turning back.
You will love the feeling of knowing that you have made a dish or dessert, that your family is going to love, then the passion and joy of baking will be in your blood.
When you see the look of pure satisfaction on their faces, you will know what I mean.
Conclusion of The Joys of Baking
I hope this will encourage you to take your baking to the next level and never ever give up! The baking world is only a mixer away. Now get your baking on girl and show your family how good you are! You can do this! 😊
