    Not a trap @Avalon @Smoke

    Can you guys throw down in the kitchen? What are you able to bake? How did you learn (self-taught? family member? professional?). I use my oven to roast things mainly, but I do plan on learning how to make desserts too. things i would want to learn how to make include croissants, muffins, cookies, and bread.

    also, moment of silence for the bento box. rip. :blobcookie

    My mother taught me several years ago how to cook and bake. Super useful life skill and it's a lot of fun tbh. :blobcookie

    This is from a different thread, last month.

    My room mate has taken them to work, and she says that her coworkers love them. The secret is that I put double the coffee, and instead of mixing it with a whisk/spoon, I put the bowl on the ground and use my left foot.

    My main thing is brownies. All the brownies. I'm working up to an impossible cake.


    Once in a while, I'll cook salmon.

    I don't really like sweets, so I don't bake.

    I do cook a lot though, and I learned how by just Googling whatever I wanted to make. IMO, there's no excuse for not knowing how to cook when there are thousands of websites for literally any recepe.

    I used to make cookies and cake as a kid. The cake was always from a cake mix (except for one time where I tried and failed to make a really impressive looking cookbook cake).

    Recently I heard even professional bakers use cake mix, since it simplifies the process so much which means a lot less can go wrong.

    Also I heard putting some coffee in chocolate cake is a good idea but I don't know if it's true

    Espresso powder. And yes, it's awesome. The trick to a good taste, is not to be stingy with it.

    I'm a career cook and work in fine dining but usually when I bake there is usually something I am less than satisfied with about it. There's a lot more variables with pastry it seems, whereas other cookery can yield more consistent results with more wiggle room.

    That being said, I'm interested a lot in baking and am always trying to learn more. I even consider going to work for a bakery

    I love to bake, mostly sweets. My last job was pretty stressful, so learning to bake helped out with that. My coworkers could always tell if I had a bad day, because I'd come in with cookies/cakes/brownies whatever the next day.

    I like cooking. Not that I am great or anything but I've been told that the things I make are at least tasty. I know how to make desserts and but savoury stuff as well.
