Don't Think You Can Bake? Tips to Succeed

My mother was great in the kitchen, but I didn't inherit her natural knack for whipping up baked goods. She never followed recipes, because she knew how to create treats without them! As an adult, I found baking fun, but when none of my treats turned out edible, I officially decided to quit baking. One day, I was watching a friend bake a batch of cookies, and she shared some great tips for baking success. She told me that following recipes precisely was key to success and that most bakers do use recipes! She also told me that every oven differs and some get hotter in certain spots, even when set on the same temperature, so check on items often before the time is up. I created this blog to share the baking tips I have learned and to help others who think they "can't bake" realize that they can!
