Baking Confessions of a 24 Year Old

So the other day I tried making some cookies, just because I felt like baking. Confession: they turned out terrible! I made one batch and they were flat and burned. I couldn’t figure out what it was, but all I knew is I was very upset. I was crying for about a hour thinking about how I wouldn’t be a good mom because I wouldn’t know how to bake for my future kids.

Obviously that is the farthest thing from the truth. I have made plenty of good batches of cookies and cakes over my life, with and without my mom and I know that I can do it again. When I was crying my husband kept asking me why I was reacting so strongly. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but then I finally realized that it’s because of my childhood. When I was little my mom liked to bake, especially during the holidays. I loved the way our house smelled, pumpkin breads, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies. I was feeling like a failure because I wasn’t baking like I had always had. Thankfully I was able to calm down and realize that it wasn’t the end of the world.

    Aw, that sucks. My mom was never much of a baker, so I dont feel bad when I burn my cookies or they come out tasting like poo haha. Food on the other hand, that’s something I “should” get right since both my parents are amazing cooks. Meh.

    You’ll learn on your own. Maybe cookies aren’t your thing. Seriously, mine always come out tasting gross and being hard as rocks haha but boy oh boy do I make an amazing pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie and cakes 🙂
