While I enjoy the culinary challenges that come with a new diet, some things I miss dearly. Specifically, baking. It is not a craving for baked goods but rather I miss the actually baking itself. Few things compare to the satisfaction of pulling out a fresh loaf of bread and mingling in the sweet fragrance of butter, sugar, flour, and eggs.
Last week, I needed the oven to roast some squash and sweet potatoes. It just seemed like such a waste of energy if I don’t take advantage of having a hot oven for an hour. Naturally, I quickly whipped up a loaf cake. That was just the right thing to do.
