The Joys of Baking

I love baking, it is my favourite part of cooking. I like it because I know I'm not doing it for someone or some people. I'm doing it for fun. I'm sure some of you aren't convinced so I have 5 reasons why baking is great. 

1. It's calming if you have time 

2. It fills your house with beautiful aromas 

3. You know exactly what's going into your food unlike store bought 

4. You can use up old fruit that you won't use otherwise 

5. It's FUN!!! 

So, now that you are convinced that baking is great I can start  sharing some of my favourite baking recipes, cookbooks and links. 

Baking Recipes   
These recipes are staples if you are a baker.

These are good to use for a base for other cookies. You can add things and frost them.

Lots of Love
