Favorite thing COOK or BAKE?

I know to some there is NO difference. But it is to me. Cooking and Baking are two different things when I am in the kitchen.  Today I will share what my favorite thing is.

 I love the feeling of dough, the smells of something I have created rising in the oven, and the creativity with baking. I love it. I always feel accomplished when I bake a loaf of successful bread or yummy cookies.

BUT my favorite is COOKING!

I like to try recipes. I like to play with seasonings and ingredients. I love casserole creations. I love sitting down and taking the first taste of multiple items I have cooked. I love chopping! I love the sizzle of the pan, and sound of the boiling water.

What about you.... are your a COOKING FAN or a BAKING UP A STORM FAN?

  1. I've done both so many times- I never really thought about but I do like baking best. And I will be doing some baking today as we are out of bread, my husband wants cookies and my in laws are coming to town.

  2. I love cooking best...I love using seasons. I love my food to have a great taste. I love chopping also, adding a pinch of this or that. My daughter is learning to bake..she is doing quite well. She can't wait to learn to cook.

  3. I do love to bake - but haven't done too much of that since starting Trim Healthy Mama. I did make cappuccino muffins for the family yesterday.

  4. I enjoy cooking, but I LOVE baking! I feel like cooking is something I have to do (in a good way ;)). Baking is something that gives me great pleasure as it is usually results in a treat for my family.

    1. Wendi,

      I can totally see what you mean about cooking. I am not always cheerful about cooking but usually when I start I enjoy it.

  5. I love both, but I may have to pick baking because it's the first thing I taught my girls in the kitchen when they were very little and we still make good memories in the kitchen together :-) Have a great day!

    Blessings,
    Jill

  6. Both are certainly enjoyable, but I must confess that I am a baking-kind-of-girl :) I love creating beautiful sweets.

    Have a wonderful day, dear Chrissy. Hugs!

  7. Well, I have to say that I like to bake more that I like to cook. I have just been cooking for so very long, that it's not that fun anymore. But baking, now that is different! It's just fun to bake and also pretty yummy.

  9. I think I would have to say cooking as well, and that is because (like you mentioned), I can do different things each time. With baking you need to follow a recipe, or you end up in trouble, lol... so I like cooking better because I can be more creative and try different things. :)

  10. Despise cooking but love to bake! I used to bake all the time but you know I haven't been able to the past year or so but I started back up. I made some blueberry muffins and they were gone in no time but I loved that I knew EXACTLY what was in them! However, I find that makes me eat more haha.
