Learning to bake

My guy and I recently went through a bit of a lull in our relationship, if you know what I mean.

  • Things just weren’t happening naturally between us, it wasn’t feeling hot, and everything we tried felt really forced and boring.

No matter what big plans we tried to come up with for the night when we were both finally together, it felt like the magic heat just wasn’t happening for us. After a few awkward weeks, we finally just gave up on the whole endeavor and started looking outside our home for sweet relief. Yes, of course I’m talking about our mutual boredom with cooking together. For the past two years we’ve been intimate kitchen partners with a daily job to do. We created delicious, hot and spicy, gourmet meals every night, week after week, month after month, with a very slim budget. The thing is, we got burnt out. We were tired of the heat, the smoke, and the same old flavors. Suddenly neither one of us was interested in the endless work of cooking dinner; that’s when baking creeped slowly into our lives. We’ve been having a lot of fun with this cool new hobby together, but there are still issues.The thing is, baking is just as difficult and heated as cooking was! Rather than having the stovetop burning hot and spitting boiling oil, now we have the oven running at full blast for days on end as we complete arduous baking projects at home. We have the ventilation fan running constantly to pull out the burnt smoke from our failed cookies, and the open windows let in tons of cold outdoor air. These days our air quality control system is working harder than ever, and so are we.
