Baking is a form of art that is admired by many and loved by all. I love baking and have a passion for it. One ingredient that is widely underestimated in baking is sunflower oil.

In most cases using baking soda for acne is perfectly safe. In some cases it can irritate the skin. In such cases use a weaker mixture and use it less often.

The problem with typical metal pans is the distribution of heat. Metals absorb heat and do not always evenly distribute the heat on the surface of the pan which transfers to the foods on the pan. The silicone material does not absorb heat, instead it distributes heat on the surface of the baking pan which translates to an even result on the foods that are cooked on the pan.

When the temperature is too high you will get a cake that is overcooked on the outside and may not be completely cooked on the inside. The cake will be too dark. A dark cake doesn’t matter if it is frosted, at least as far a the look is concerned, but it can change the flavor of some high sugar cakes.

Always preheat the oven. Be sure to allow enough time to preheat the oven for at least 45 minutes before baking. This is key for great taste, color and texture.

Slowing down is good and should be an enjoyable factor, not an annoying factor. So much of life is rushed. There is a constant pursuit in society after what brings instant gratification. Baking puts a halt on instant gratification and frenetic activity. We have to slow down, watch, read, and notice and pay attention to the ingredients, to the smells, to the way the batter forms between our fingers or in the blender. The more attuned we become at baking, at noticing how different ingredients react and act together, the better bakers we will be.

When it is time to outfit your kitchen with bakeware and cooking tools, explore the benefits of silicone products. The tools and bakeware products have some terrific advantages over other baking materials such as metal and glass. The bakeware is durable and will not dent or stain. Cleanups are a breeze with a Silpat baking sheet as well as the bakeware made from silicone. Collect the pieces or buy a whole set at once. You will never go back to metal or glass pans again.
