Are you a beginner at baking? Getting cold feet about never having tried your hand at the culinary arts? Fear not, cooking is not as complicated as it sounds. It is only complicated when you have no idea about what you’re doing. If you happen to be one of those people that needs help with cooking, here are some special cooking tips for you and voila! Before you know it, you’ll be busy in the kitchen, rustling up a storm!
IMPORTANT TIP: I lay a ruler across my recipe to mark exactly which step I’m on at any moment. That way, I do not miss a step that will mess up my finished product.
Here’s something you need to bear in mind. Even if you are anxious to get rid of your acne, start out slowly. Baking soda can irritate your skin if it’s too sensitive. Start with once or twice a week and see how your skin reacts to it. Later on you can use it more often. You can also mix baking powder with a bit of neem oil or tea tree oil to make it more potent. Both of these oils are anti-bacterial and anti-septic.
Baking is a way of remembering the good times shared with grandparents. Most of all of us have grandmas who baked. The Norwegian proverb that states, “Grandmas never run out of hugs or cookies,” was certainly reminiscent of my grandmother.
You may need to invest on a baking oven and a laptop where you can also market your goods. Think of a name for you home baking business and register it. The cost of licensing is only minimal and it will allow you to maintain a business bank account as well as take advantage of wholesale supply discounts.
The ingredient I am speaking of is something many of you know (and possibly love). It is called “baking soda”. Yes! The kind that you use to absorb odorific scents in the refrigerator, the baking soda that you use to bake goodies that fluff up with utmost glee, and the same baking soda that you use to clean veggies and fruits in your kitchen.
Baking time is very important. You do not want to under-bake. However, you also do not want to over-bake. I usually set my timer, to check whatever I’m baking, for 5 to 7 minutes before the time it should be done. Make sure it also looks done.
