I’ve always thought that maybe Cooking and/or Baking is my true calling in life. It’s not because I cook well or bake well, but ever since I was a child, I’ve been a fan of cooking and baking shows. I can watch for hours and hours and not get tired of trying to race my fingers to try and copy recipes.
When I was a child, I know my mom used to bake. I don’t remember what she baked, but I just know she baked because what I remember is the smell of freshly baked goodies. She’s also a great cook. A lot of my relatives ask her to cook their favorite meals because they can’t do it on their own, even if my mom gave them the exact recipe to follow. My mom is the kind of cook who doesn’t have secrets. That’s just the way she is.
Now that I’m a mother myself, I would also love to share those moments with my little girl. I hope to save enough to buy my own materials and gadgets, from the best mixers and bowls, to kitchenaid food processor parts, and of course the molds and sheets. I would love for my daughter to remember that baking and cooking is our special time together.
I’m loving the fact that even though my little one is just 3, she seems interested when I still watch my cooking and baking shows. Since she’s showing interest, I plan to pursue my dream, of baking and cooking with her. If it’s not MY calling, maybe it’s hers? If it still isn’t, then it’s still fine with me because I just know we’ll have such a blast together.
