Baking: Cookies, bars and brownies

I have a few people who, upon knowing I bake, asked if I used the pre-made mixes or if I baked from scratch.

It puzzled me that they would ask me that and then it dawned on me that there were those packages sold in the supermarket which all you need to do is to mix the contents together, add some stuff and put into the oven.

I did that when I was a teenager when brownies were  mysterious products to me and that you attempt at your own risk.

But you know, baking can be easy. The simplest is the cookies. It’s just like those mixes. Once you have prepared the ingredients, just combine everything together in a few steps and drop the dough onto the baking paper, into the oven and there you have it, delicious cookies!

After baking cookies, bars and brownies for the past one month, I am ready to move on to the next level (found in my baking book) which is Quick Breads. Some of the quick breads which I would be baking include strawberry shortcakes, banana-nut bread, cinnamon streusel coffee cake, apple oven pancake, currant cream scones.
