The Lost Art of Homemade Goodies - Find it With Baking Classes!
Do you love fresh baked bread or delight in walking past a bakery shop? Have a sweet tooth but hate all the preservatives that come along with store bought or warehouse packaged sweets? Nothing tempts your senses like warm soft bread or cookies fresh out of the oven.
It wasn't so long ago that every house had as large of an oven as they could afford. Every week, sometimes every day, the tantalizing aroma of fresh baked bread wafted out of every household. Cookie jars were kept filled with the latest treats that Mom or Grandma pulled out of the oven.
Somehow, things have changed. How have we fooled ourselves into thinking that homemade goodies come from the refrigerated cookie dough that we purchased from the grocery store and popped in the oven? It is time consuming to bake from scratch and much more thought provoking than opening a bag of cookies, but the love that is baked into each treat is worth all the time and effort.
Nowadays ovens are used more for frozen pizzas and meals, rather than homemade goodies. For some, the reason is lack of time, yet for others the reason is lack of know-how. Fortunately, time is something that can be resourcefully gathered. It comes down to desired priority. Cooking and baking can make fun family projects, family nights, and gifts - if pursued correctly it can even generate extra income.
