What do like cooking or baking the most?

Hi everyone,

With the interest in healthy eating and preparing more meals ourselves because of the lockdown I wondered what any of you have been enjoying baking or cooking.

I've always liked baking bread the most and thats stood me well during the pandemic/lockdown as I have been so very grateful that I can bake gluten free bread thats wholesome at home, as it keeps me busy the smell is wonderful so I find it something very positive to do. I baked this bread this morning, its brown gluten free bread with quinoa flakes on top for extra flavour and nutrition. Quinoa is a complete food as it is one of the few foods that contains all the vital nutrients that our bodies need to function.

We love photo's of each others meals bakes so don't be shy folks and I'd love to know who been baking what!

Remember the healthier we are the better we stand against COVID19! And on that happy note enjoy the rest of your day now folks and stay safe and well. 🌈😊

Good question I love cooking because I can learn from my mom because i watch my mom cook and bake . but i also like baking because my mom makes the most yummiest desserts. So i like both its so satisfying to see the whole process of how a dish or dessert is made .

oh yes πŸ‘πŸ» 😍 it’s soo good I should stop talking about it or I’ll beg my mom to make it 🀣🀣

A very good question Jerry and I have to say it's baking for me. I love to make raw fruit bars, sweet potato brownies and of course sourdough bread, I'll be cooking that tomorrow. I've made raw bars and brownies today as well as I've ground down roasted peanuts and made peanut butter.

Stay safe and well and enjoy your evening.

That's a great choice Alicia as I've seen your baked goodies and love the look and sound of all them and I'd find some of your sourdough bread followed by a sweet potato brownie very agreeable...Have a lovely evening yourselves and you keep safe and well now. πŸŒˆπŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Thank you Jerry. I do find baking more enjoyable.

Your bread certainly looked tasty.

Have a lovely evening.

You always give us ' food for thought' with your questions πŸ˜€ I love cooking & baking. Cooking is a necessity but for me it's also a hobby as I love to scour the recipe books for something new to cook & inflict on the family. Thankfully they seem to enjoy it!!! And baking, my way of relaxing & giving us that much needed treat for the weekend.

Thank you tas1 that's very much appreciated all I want to do is encourage others to eat healthily.

I'm impressed that you enjoy cooking and baking as it is very therapeutic in so many ways so I bet your family appreciate your efforts.

And as for treats we all deserve those and home baked ones are so much healthier and wholesome so I'm very pleased for you. 🌈😊

Thanks Jerry. I've been known to try out a couple of your recipes as I have neighbour who has a gluten free diet. Please keep them coming!

Thank you so much for that and being a coeliac I most certainly will...πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

I have bought a soup maker, it's so simple to use and you get lovely soup with no additives. My favourites are leak and potato, and carrot and parsnip. I can make enough to last four days. It's lovely.

Love all things cooking and baking always have done. I come from a family where I was the eldest of 6 back in the 1950s/60s and all meals were made from scratch I loved helping mum we always had proper food nothing much was 'convenient' if it was it was occasional fish and chips on a Friday tea.

So as things are ATM it was a very good grounding...

Hello ali-may I can relate to this even though I come from a smaller family, as I grew up in a small country town and have happy memories of fish and chips as a treat on a Friday and a 99 in the summer so yes things have indeed changed and yes we are well set up for this. Enjoy your evening now. 🌈😊
