When you step into the kitchen, you feel unsure and frustrated.
You walk into a bakery and think “There’s no way that I could make something like that at home.”
You feel frustrated when a recipe doesn’t turn out right and you can’t figure out what went wrong.
You want to be able to walk into the kitchen with the confidence that you can bake an amazing dessert, but you’re not sure where to start.
I understand. Because I used to feel the same way.
I believe that anyone, even beginners, can bake amazing desserts.
You don’t have to have a baking degree or the “baking gene” to be successful or confident in the kitchen. But with the right tools and knowledge, YOU can bake incredible desserts and treats that you’ll feel proud to share with friends and family.
What others are saying:
“These cookies are awesome! My husband loved them so making a batch for him to take to the office. Thanks for the recipe, now a family favorite!”
“Just made these last night and they are delicious. Even the husband approved! Ate them hot out of the oven with ice cream–YUM!!!”
“I was so excited to find a small batch recipe that I had to make them right away! They came out perfectly fluffy, crispy on the bottom, and delicious. I even printed the recipe for future use. Thanks! : )”
Imagine the feeling of walking into your kitchen with the confidence that you can create incredible desserts that your friends and family will love.
Imagine watching your co workers going back for seconds (or thirds!) of a treat YOU baked for them.
At one point, I felt like being able to bake was a gift that some people were born with and I just didn’t have it. I was inexperienced, lost, and tired of my cookies always turning out flat or my cupcakes tasting more like dense muffins.
Eventually, I knew that if I wanted to learn to bake, I had to take the time to do just that. I spent as much time as I could reading through cookbooks and researching online. I began to understand the process, why to use certain ingredients instead of others, and I used that knowledge to create recipes through trial and error in my own kitchen.
Now, those flat cookies, dense cupcakes, and sad excuses for brownies are a thing of the past. I’ve learned that being able to bake isn’t a gift people are born with, but something that can easily be learned.
Are you ready to start feeling more confident in the kitchen too?
“Thanks for doing this! It’s what’s missing in so many (most) blogs these days.”
