I began to bake when I was a very young girl. It didn’t matter what it was -- cookies, cakes, or other treats -- take your pick! It was fun to scrutinize cookbooks and experiment with family recipes to make something delicious.
Then I tried baking a loaf of bread and I was hooked!
Kneading dough soothed my nerves. I got to twist and stretch and roll it around. No matter how much I mangled the blob of yeast and flour -- it smelled phenomenal baking in the oven (talk about aromatherapy before it was popular!). The soft, chewy insides and crispy crusts of loaves fresh from the oven made my mouth water and indulged my taste buds!
The fact that it disappears is quite compelling! Unlike other crafts where you run out of places to put your creations, baking bread can be done regularly -- it also makes wonderful gifts!
I like baking so much that I created a website about it called BakingBread-101. It talks about everything from equipment needed to ways to do things and easy recipes to make delicious artisan breads.
I am selling my house here in Las Vegas. If you happen to be relocating to this area and are looking for a lovely home, please feel free to contact me! I plan to open a bakery in the Pacific Northwest where I'll do the baking!
I am an older single Mom of a wonderful adopted little girl. We found each other when she was a few days shy of 5 months old. She is my helper when I bake. She gets to have some of the dough to make her own bread. Even after her mangling it -- and I mean mangling it -- it is delicious!
If a 5 year old can do it, so can you!
