Soften the butter, crack the eggs, mix the batter, and watch them grow! Cooking shares all of these actions! My opinion on cooking is varied. I think baking is both fun and relaxing, but at the same time, I always tend to miss a step. In this blog post, I will convey my opinion about how cooking is super fun, but also a project worth looking over a few times before beginning.
Last weekend, I made some chocolate chip cookies consisting of a new ingredient, oats. Ok, if you were there, you would understand; it’s incredibly hard to mix oats into a dough with limited moisture. When I read the label, two sticks of butter needed to be softened and mixed into the batter. So, I put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds until light pressure is applied and would create a little crater in the butter. It seemed like the right amount of time to soften, but when I added it to the chocolate chip mixture, the butter clumped! They turned out to be delicious, but I could have ruined the batter if I melted it too much or too little!
This may be an easy baked good to make, but even when you make meringues or a delicate batter, the consistency is key. In conclusion, cooking is both a delicious and intricate hobby, but a pastime that consists of a lot of concentration!
